went with lwc 9mm for her

first the sig .22 unit for early stuff, tho. As she progresses, go with 125 grs at 800 fps in the nine, then 160 lrn at 800, then 900, then 1000 then 1100 fps. The latter isMORE recoil than .45 ball( in a govt model) by quite a bit, while spending quite a bit less money on brass powder and lead. Then, if she wants to bother with the .45 for competition, get a big old clunker govt model.

My wife prefers her Pink Kimber Rimfire Target for shooting .22 and for centerfire she likes the 9mm Colt Combat Commander. So Melvin, how many matches has she competed in so far?

Actually my wife doesn't mind my .45 Colt Combat Commander but has problems with the 20 lb spring I have installed. Which is the way I like it.

she's still on .22, so not ready for matches. She's really smooth/reliable. for reaction, draw and chest hit at 10m, 1.5 seconds, from her speed rig, tho. Wont be too long, now, next spring, she'll be fast with 9mm. Then to see how she handles match pressure. Some women dont feel it at all, others fall apart from it, just like most men do.

Don't know about where you live but a rim fire category in Action Pistol matches and 3 gun matches is a big thing up here. At times we have had 20% of the entrants shooting in that category. So post pics.
