    I have the Taurus 941 and love it, the 8 round capacity is great,very accurate with the heaver 40gr+ loads. Yes the double action is heavy for a reason, the spring weight is needed for reliable ignition of the WMR primers. Wolf discontinued their sets of lightened spring kits due to light strikes, I did a quickie action job on mine with very fine Emory, stones and metal polish (didn't touch the sear contacts though). It helped smooth things out a good deal,but I shoot mine 75% of the time single action. It is my constant companion on Kayak camping trips, I also have a Ruger single six Convertible , almost never sees the LR cylinder installed, very nice if considering a SA,

    If the trigger pull is a deal breaker on DA revolvers, would she consider the Kel Tec PMR 30 ? wont break the bank buying it, but shooting it will with that 30 round mag

    You might consider this from Smith & Wesson:
    Specifications
    SKU: 160221
    Model: Model 317 Kit Gun™
    Caliber: .22 LR
    Capacity: 8
    Barrel Length: 3" / 7.6 cm
    Overall Length: 7.2"
    Front Sight: HI-VIZ® Fiber Optic Green
    Rear Sight: Adjustable
    Action: Single/Double Action

    Grip: Synthetic
    Weight: 11.7 oz / 331.7g
    Cylinder Material: Aluminum Alloy
    Barrel Material: Stainless Steel
    Frame Material: Aluminum Alloy
    Frame Finish: Matte Silver
    Purpose: Concealed Carry, Law Enforcement & Military, Recreational Shooting, State Compliance
    It's NOT .22 Magnum, but if she trains well enough to keep shots on a area the size of the space from upper lip to center of eyes and better the ears, the shots will go through the sinuses.

    If .22 Magnum is really a requirement look at:
    Specifications
    SKU: 103351
    Model: Model 351 C
    Caliber: .22 Magnum
    Capacity: 7
    Barrel Length: 1.875" / 4.8 cm
    Overall Length: 6.3"
    Front Sight: XS Sights® White Dot
    Rear Sight: Fixed U-Notch
    Action: Double Action Only
    Grip: Synthetic
    Weight: 11.5 oz / 326.0g
    Cylinder Material: Aluminum Alloy
    Barrel Material: Stainless Steel
    Frame Material: Aluminum Alloy
    Frame Finish: Matte Black
    Purpose: Concealed Carry, Personal Protection, State Compliance

    Be sure to check the USED market also save yourself a few bucks.

    My father got the Taurus 941, when his arthritis made his j frame too uncomfortable to shoot anymore. Trigger kinda sucks in double action, single is acceptable but just. For what it's worth, it's fairly accurate and goes bang Everytime.

    Ruger makes the LCR in.22 mag I believe. Try it, I have the 357 version and it has one of the best da triggers I've felt in a revolver.

    Arthritis is wifes reasoning for this change,rimfire equals less recoil therefore not being hesitant to fire revolver giving up 5 round of 38spl for 8-9 rounsd of 22lr or 22 mag. TY for all your input seems the Ruger LCRX is the best to go with.

    Look for an old Colt Lawman. They came in various barrel lengths.

    Sold it on here a couple years ago. Bought 2 back in the 70's one in 357 and one in 22 mag from Pedos in Easton. Don't think I even paid 350 for the pair.
