Only came with 1 mag. I got her a spare Protech mag on ebay for $23.

The pistol is a typical Beretta block of steel- smooth action and heavy. Up until recently .22s did not get any respect. Wifey can shoot a .22 pistola without being intimidated by recoil, so a .22 is what she gets. I don't know what will be available when she is ready to move up to .380 or 9mm, but I have several to choose from.
I've read that .380 is getting more respect and various new effective ammo for the pistol.

I love .380 and .38 spl better than 9mm. Self-defense is all about shot placement thus putting a .22 in her hands she can control instead of a 9mm that she limp wrists and turns her off.

When the most recent spat of ammo scarcity eventuated, .380 was one of the few calibers remaining on the shelves, but now it is ALL unobtanium at any reasonable price.

I have a couple of nice 22 handguns for the women-folk.

Why are Mexican Libertads double the price of any other state minted coins?

My LAX ammo order just got dropped off at the front door.
I've ordered from them before and will order from them again.
I've NEVER had any issues with this company, highly recommend them.

Don’t know about that one but I owned a 9mm Taurus once that was absolute garbage. Couldnt hit the side of a barn with it. After firing at the range one day, I quickly unloaded it at the next gun show and bought something better.
