Hi all, new to the forum's. I have a question pertaining to what small caliber is a good choice for my wife? Here are a few question's and criteria's I have: 1. What small caliber choice would you recomend for a 5'2" 125lb lady? 2. Has to be big enough to take a whitetail no more than 300yds. 3. She would like something that is fun to shoot at the range as well as the field. ( not a lot of recoil). 4. I would like the caliber to be readily available and somewhat cheep to shoot as we go to the range almost every weekend. 5. Has to be able to pop varmints about 500yds or less. I hope I have covered the basic's any help would be greatly appreciated.
