    Good for her.

    As far as the caliber, what else can I say, but, I like it.

    Really nice choice....When my daughter got her CPL I gave her the money to buy her own handgun....worked out well all the way around....

    I like those sights, a range report to comment on them would be appreciated, especially if you have access to a 642 to compare.

    Excellent! Congrats to the kid.
    Refusing to conform to the left wing mantra of political correctness by insisting on telling the truth does not make you a loud mouth.

    Suggested retail, dealer sets actual price.

    Also, it's a "Pro Series" handgun in a caliber that might not move too well, sales-wise.
    Overkill is underrated.

    Well, it does make a good women's caliber...

    Be a good sidearm if she uses a .270 for hunting.

    I liked it because it's got a 2" barrel vs the standard 1 7/8" most J-frames come with, and is a six shot instead of five.. and is a hammerless DAO so there is nothing to snag on clothing if she needs to produce it in a hurry.. unlike the Sp101 in .32 H&R I had years ago.. had to be careful where you stashed it on your person.. or you were working harder than you should to employ it in a scenario.. that's primarily why I got rid of it.

    and seeing as how I reload .32 H&R for my wife's Blackhawk, cranking out buttloads of .327 Federal practice ammo will be easy peasy..
    Never laugh at your wife's choices.
    You are one of them.

    careful, SirGeorge..
    I have an awful lot of fun bustin' caps in my wife's .32 Blackhawk..


    but anyway, I'm glad you guys agree it will make at least an adequate carry gun..

    I think as I said it is a good gun and cartridge; but, contrary to
    the sage advice given on this forum by those that have not shot
    .327 in a light revolver and in most cases not shot it in any revolver,
    the .327 is a magnum .32 and as a result has considerable recoil
    without porting or as in the case of the SP 101 a change to an after market
    recoil reducing grip.

    The other 3 cartridges the gun will shoot are in fact easy shooting.

    Hey I resemble that remark:tooth: My sage advice, buy a .357 Magnum and quit fooling around with the wannabe Peashooters....:guns::guns::guns:
