Well, I've had my CCW for a while now & have been trying to get my wife into shooting, too. She wasn't liking my Sig P239/9mm too much...too much kick, I suppose. Anyway, I took her to the range yesterday & rented a P22... she LOVED IT! Now, she wants to get her CCW & she wants me to pick up our own P22 this week. Gee, I guess I'll be forced to. What a GREAT gun. The magic of Walther.
