      Good for her. I'll bet she is having FUN. The only issue with pistol shooting is that you can never get enough ammo. It is so fun; you want to shoot thousands of rounds.

        I gave her a brick of Remington Target Ammo and have more where that came from. She is also getting her girlfriend into shooting. She said the Remington shot great and no miss fire like she is having with other brands. I asked when we go to My Club if she wants to shoot the .357 and Dirty Harry gun and she is all for it. I will use .38spl first. Have to check her grip before letting her shoot the 29.

          If she is new to shooting larger caliber handguns, I'd recommend loading some lighter weight wad cutters at lower velocity to keep the recoil down for starters. I have seen several people get really turned OFF on pistol shooting by trying hunting magnums; especially women. These hot hunting loads DO have lots of recoil and it might not be FUN for some. If she likes it, she can always move up gradually to hotter loads. The big pistols can also instill some real bad habits in good pistol shooters (namely "jerk" and "flinch").

            I would start with .38's in my ruger Blackhawk. Then if her grip is sufficient, I would let her shoot some .44spl in the 29 after I shot a couple to show her what to expect. She is a big girl, 22yo, and hopefully has good hand/ wrist strength.
            I had to back off on the 29 and Blackhawk as I was shooting 50 of each at a visit to the range. I think I was getting carpal tunnel or arthritis. Better now that I don't shoot so much. All my loads have always been within 1 gr of max.
