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.

Show pictures of her shooting or competing from the back, looking towards the targets. You don't have to show her face. Or haven't you figured out how to use a camera yet?

Gee Melvin, you don't have to be bitter about it. I thought we were friends.

09 April 2017, shot a pistol competition, which is not unusual for me. The pistol that I used in the match that day has a history, 100 years ago on 09 April 1917 it was in the hands of a Canadian soldier of the 27th Battalion (City of Winnipeg), 6th Canadian Brigade, 2nd Canadian Division who was assaulting Vimy Ridge on the Western Front. The 1914 Colt Government Model was one of 5000 purchased by the gov't for the CEF and it still functions flawlessly after 100 years.

Nice .45, a straight 1911 is a hard to find. I have a terrible addiction to C&R guns. Great to know the history.
