Re: Need pistol Info PLEASE!

My first choice for a kid is a revolver like a Colt Frontier in 22lr or Ruger Single Six, but having seen that you want a semi auto, Id highly recomend Browning Buckmark, or a Walther P-22. Ive shot or owned all of the above mentioned and am pleased by the accuracy and dependability. I like the Ruger Mk-II. for reliability, but I couldnt hit my butt if I was sitting on my hands with that gun. Yet, I know others who can drive tacks with them. Maybe it just doesnt fit me right.
My only gripe with the ones I mentioned is the Walther is picky on what kind of ammo you feed it. And it takes a while to get used to diss-assembeling it for cleaning and re-assembly. Once you got it down its easy enough tho.
I got my wife a pink one before the pink ones ''hit the market'', and its so comfy in my hand that I wish it was green or black so I could shoot it in public. It has 2, or 3, rear grip sizes to fit most any size hand.+ it has the option to add the stabilizer and longer target bbl. It has a ''tac rail'' and Walther has everything from bridge mounts, red dot optics, and laser sights made for it if you want to add/customise/or upgrade. And its accurate beyond belief at 20 yds and less. Plus it has ''double strike capability''-handy in the case of a hang fire-, and an exposed hammer for ''single shot trigger pull'' vs ''double actoin trigger pull''.
IMO Revolver 1st choice, but Browning, or Walther for auto loader.

You have recieved good advice so far. I have shot most of the ones mentioned so i thought i would offer my opinion. My first choice would be the ruger mark 2. i have a plain jane blued model, and the stainless slabside model. they both shoot good, but the slab side model is outstanding. it has the walnut grip with thumb swell. For accuracy, this is the one i would reccomend.

I've got a couple of the Ruger Mark II's and love them. My kids have been shooting them from a very young age and do well with them. They are extremely accurate as well as very customizable.

Highly recommended here.
