here are a couple of random semiauto pistol suggestions that work for me, a generally recoil averse, revolver guy: ruger lcp2 22lr. a week old, i've put almost 400 rounds of various ammo through it. federal bulk was problematic, but all cci types, standard and above, and federal premium types ran well. i know that most folks don't like 22lr for a ccw, but based on my locales and routines, a 22lr on me that i can hit with from round #1 trumps something bigger left at home. i would love to see a ruger lcp in 32acp; 380acp in this small piece is more oomph than i am comfortable practicing with. s&w shield ez 380acp. 100% easy in all aspects, exactly as advertised. a "one and done" semiauto pistol, ideal for non gunners, revolver guys, physically challenged, seniors or anyone wanting a smoothly pleasant handgun experience. a little big to be the handiest ccw, but with right holster, sure. i haven't tried the ez 9mm, but it could be right for persons seeking more oomph and cheaper ammo. and an off the wall suggestion: ruger blackhawk convertible 357mag/38sp/9mm single action revolver. built like a brick outhouse. soft shooter even with powerhouse magnums. cheap plinker with 9mm ammo. slower shooter that forces better aim. "an elegant weapon for a more civilized age."
