My partner has started to enjoy a bit of plinking in the back garden but finds it hard compressing her Beeman 2004.
Its struck me that she would probably enjoy the ease of a co2 gun, she's a light build and has small hands and I wondered if some sort of Makarov type gun might suit her, I've just ordered a KWC P08 for myself, is their Makarov good?
Is it definitely worth going for a blowback model, any other suggestions?

How about a PPK?

a Crossman ratbuster is a good choice .accurate and won't break the bank balance. Also single shot so won't waste to many of your expensive pellets doing rapid fire ..remember to take into account cost of running co2 is higher than a springer

It's 3p a shot for my .25 CP1.
2p for the pellet!
Lov 21. :d
First thing to decide on is what type of 'plinking', then choose a gun to suit. If just tin cans etc. then a CO2 powered blowback pistol will give plenty of fun and is easy to load - put 15 BBs or so into the magazine and shoot away. Lots of different models to choose from too.
For something more 'serious' then a CO2 target pistol can be used for competition type shooting. Again. easy to load and quite a few to choose from - budget to serious money PCPs.
I use a variety of pistol types, from SSP's through springers and enjoy them all and shoot monthly, at home, in the UBC competitions as well as enjoying fun plinking with friends.
My wife isn't interested at all in shooting but if she was and wanted a pistol I think I'd get her a Colt SAA. Not too heavy, easy to load and suitable for some of the UBC competitions.
Beat of luck - and be warned your wife may become addicted and there is no known cure.

Its quite a capable little pistol. http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Airs...ml?sort=4&o=25 Shot by me using my LOV21 (slightly modified e.g. lubed) one handed with the target at 10m.
Its just for plinking, but we'll keep the Beeman for paper punching. She likes shooting cans and has previously shown enjoyment blasting pop bottles filled with water with my shotgun, hence I was thinking semi auto Co2.
I'm well impressed with her interest in all this

Possibly, I hadn't considered a revolver.Could she handle an Umarex 586?
I think she would go for a small classic style gun, the PPK and Makarov or similar types would probably suit.
Has anyone got experience of the KWC Makarova?
