    Small and mighty, the Walter P22 is a perfect option for the ladies for a whole lot of reasons. Let’s take a look!


    Accuracy

    The Walther P22 is great for easy accuracy thanks to its good build that is well-fit to the women shooters of the world. The remarkable lack of recoil and sound makes for easy shooting. Without the heavy recoil, there isn’t as much trouble with dropping rounds from anticipating the kick.

    Also, Walther’s white dots sights on the P22 are adjustable. The front sights snap on and off to adjust for height and the rear sight is windage adjustable. The snap feature worried me, but it’s a snug fit that I never had issues with losing or moving. This pistol stays on target because it’s so easy to shoot and stay comfortable while you’re doing it!

    I like the idea of the 22 for a lady, or for a man as well, if inside the noise will damage hearing and there isn't a critter on the face of the earth that hasn't been dispatched with a 22.

    As long as we're talking target shooting, popping soup cans along the ground, and so on, a .22 is fine. But for "serious work," never.

    a hit with a 22 is better than a miss with anything else, a woman can limp grip a pistol resulting in failure to function and/or develop a nasty flinch.
    The deterrent factor of an armed "victim" is still there.
    How many women do you know who actually practice the necessary amount to maintain proficiency?

    I will not dispute the quality of a Walther firearm. However, I use a Glock 19 as my EDC with a S&W Shield (9mm) as a backup. Of course these are what I train with so, naturally, I am inclined to favor them.

    For wilderness I currently use a Ruger Super Redhawk (.44 Rem Mag) but am starting to train with a Glock 40 (10mm). The rifle I carry is either an AR-15 (5.56 NATO) or a FAL (7.62 NATO)

    10mm, hmmm I hear a lot about the 10mm for carry in bear country.
    Years ago a friend came back home to this state from TX, we didn't have the ccw rights restored then. I asked what he carried, "Glock, it has a spongy trigger, poor sights, horrible grip, and goes bang every time".

    ss51:

    "A hit with a .22 is better than a miss with anything else" assumes or at least implies the female defender will typically, or at least often, miss the first time. This is a baseless assumption and renders your argument invalid.

    "A woman can limp grip a pistol resulting in failure to function and/or develop a nasty flinch." Anyone, regardless of sex, can limp-grip and/or develop a flinch. There are decades-old training methods to prevent this and even "repair" the problem.

    "How many women do you know who actually practice the necessary amount to maintain proficiency?" The question would generate an answer that does not represent the female population in general, and therefore would be statistically invalid. Therefore, your question is irrelevant.

    I often carry a Sig P365 w/manual safety. I think this gun could work well for many women.

    My grandson, new to shooting, has developed a decided liking for the Sig Pistols.

    Me. I train a lot and compete a lot. I know a lot of women who do the same. You can also ask that question of men. And I've seen them flinch/limp wrist. Unfortunately too many people do not train seriously with their guns, male or female.

    I agree. Always a risk of failing to fire, as .22 is wont to do at times (I shoot a lot of .22 at speed steel and it can be an issue) and although it can be a deadly round I prefer something with more stopping power.

    then we are back to revolver for dependability.
    Handgun proficiency is a perishable skill and needs to be maintained by frequent repitition, agreed that many or most don't get enough.
