Thats a pretty sight. All I got was a used Detonics Pocket 9. I have wanted one to go with my series 2 combat master.

I got a Nikon shotgun/muzzleloader scope. Already have it mounted on my T/C Omega smokestick and bore sighted. I'm grinnin’ like the cat standing next to the empty birdcage.

Yes I told the better half I wanted a pair. Yes they are a rare little find. Like the other early Detonics they are really handmade pistols, with all the little problems that can come with that. But I still love my CombatMaster. Dont trust it as much as my SIG but still is a great auto that can be used as a BUG in an ankle holster thanks to the grip being cut down so much

There is really no reason to use it beyond those distances anyway.

Its a shame classic arms are so heavy.

>> Shoot!

Somehow I *knew* you’d say that. :-)

Background: Mrs. Tick and I are not yet handgun owners, but we have talked about it and discussed getting our CCL, so far without action.

So yesterday we were with our country cousins who definitely ARE pistol packers. Mrs. Tick’s cousin has a new Taurus Model M85 Ultra Lite Titanium. She fairly gushed over how much she likes it. Carries it in her purse. Surprise of surprises, Mrs. Tick likes it too and now expresses real interest in having and carrying one and working on her CCL.

I’m thinking about striking while the iron is hot, and just getting one of these things (since I *know* she’ll like it and I won’t have to *sell* her on the bennies of having it and learning to use it).

I have researched it some this evening; I am aware that the Taurus is no S&W, it is what it is.

So the question is, all things considered with our situation, is this a poor choice of weapon for a new female pistol owner to carry?

If so, what alternative?

I’m pretty sure we’re going to go with a revolver for her.

Fire away!

Thanks and FRegards

My only possible concern is that with ultralights the recoil can be quite a sting.

They are often recommended for women but once they get a taste of the recoil they dont want to shoot it.

I wouldn’t shy away from a taurus, they have a lifetime transferable warranty.

But you may want to let her shoot one first. In fact I recommend that you shoot any gun you plan to carry before you buy it just to be sure you are comfortable with it.

So get a Smith Airweight. It is what the Taurus is modeled after anyway.

Mine is lite, has a great trigger and has been a great little gun.

Because it’s so light it will smack pretty good.

You should get your cousins to allow her to test fire theirs.

I'll chime in here, for what it's worth, which ain't much.
If she liked the feel of that Taurus, then that's a great start. Better if she actually shot it before buying. I bought a CC pistol (CZ 82) before shooting it based on recommendation from someone I trust (H/T mylife), but I have some experience with sidearms.
All the training vids I've seen say that the worst place for a woman to pack the heat is in a purse. It needs to be on the body whenever possible, but there are times when that isn't practical.

Thanks; that’s a good point that I hadn’t considered.

The weight difference *is* significant; 13.5oz in titanium vs. 22.5oz in stainless, from the Taurus website. I can see how that might be a problem, recoil-wise.

The idea of shooting it first before buying is of course a good one. I just have to figure out how to pull it off before her B-day. ;-)

Of all my revolvers, this one has the best DA trigger. it's smooth and easy to pulll thru. You can also easily pull it to just where it breaks and hold it untill ready to fire.
