I'm trying to get my daughter (adult) a handgun for protection. She took a women's class and handled all semi-autos. She's small with small hands, and all the slides were tough to operate. I've got the SP101 as mentioned, and it fits her hands well. Double action she handles it well, but cocking it for single action was very difficult. I'm not a gunsmith, and my knowledge of handguns is limited. My questions are, is there much improvement to be had with the triggers in these revolvers without sacrificing reliability. Is there a hammer extension available for them, and any thoughts regarding aftermarket parts I should look at. I will be taking it to a gunsmith-but would like to know a little bit to better understand what to ask. The plan would be get her started with the .22, and move up when she's managing it well.
