Hi folks,
 
My wife went target shooting with me for the very first time.  We took the Contender with the 14" 22LR Match barrel with the little 2 1/2x TC scope.  Had her practice going through the motions of loading (with a snap cap), positioning on the rest and firing (trigger release feel) at the 25 yard target.  She did this about two dozen times.  All went well.  Gave her a box of Federal 36 gr HP's to go live.  That girl kicked butt!  Five 10 shot groups covered with a new golden dollar.  One group covered with a quarter.  She had a great time and loved every minute!
 
Saturday, I went to my local gun shop.  I ordered her a new Contender G2 frame in SS, a 14" 22LR Match in SS,  Burris 2-7x plex in nickel, and Burris mount & rings in nickel.  Grip & Forend are TC black.  Should make her a nice starter gun.

Interesting choice.  I have a couple of Encore pistols in heavier calibers but I had never given much thought to having a 22 cal barrel for it.
