Last year I decided to build an ak for my girl knowing she has no real intrest in firearms. After seeing her shoot it or try to shoot it I thought maybe something smaller would be better. She fired around 5 rounds and handed me the rifle back. That was it. I noticed she got bullied by the weapon pretty good (she is only 120 lbs.) and the look on her face said it all. It's too heavy, to loud , it scares me, and the kicker ,I'm not into guns. I have a friend that hunts raccons here and uses a ruger .22 for it. I borrowed it and tried again, I loaded it with standard vel 22 shorts and noticed she had no problem with it and the dog didd'nt try headdin for the hills either she now owns a 10/22. Victory! It it was light, quiet, and maybe 1/10th as menacing as an ak and the "little bullets look cute". I know she is not much of a shot but at least she can watch my back now.
