My daughter is at that age it is time to teach her to handle a pistol. I am looking for your opinions on the correct choice. I have recently purchased in an auction a brand new in the box Ruger mark 3 .22 complete with 2 mags for $310 and am also wandering how I did on the buy. Now keep in mind she is young and I don't want to put to much on her at once. Any other opinions will be greatly appreciated.
