If you are into rolling your own, I'm sure the same could be done with the .50GI

......think long slide, skeletonized/slotted. SS 6" BB comped and ported to gain the extra 100fps and tame the weight and recoil to below .45 ACP. Kydex G-2's, extended magwell, high vis tritium adjustable sights with a halo dot and iron cowitness....two-tone...nothing too extreme, but that's just if it were me!

  Tas  you know Debb used to shoot a great deal with me and the boy's . She has shot 1911's (she has no choice with us  LOL )  Sig. P232 ,my carry gun . single actions, S&W different double actions , her Ruger P-85 , Styer 9mm ,and a host of others . I have let her friends shoot and get qualified  for their CCP with what we have in the safe .  One thing I notice about 75% of her friends and her ,is with semi's they have a hard time racking the slide ,and the smaller they are the harder they are  ,not to mention how many time they skin their thumb up.  Confused
  Believe it or not ,when left to what they feel the most comfortable with ,they always go to the double actions ,38's 357's and the .22's . And you would think the Smiths. But no Debb when she wants to shoots for fun with us ,will always go to her Taurus Ultra Lite in .38 .
 
 Unless you really buying a new gun for yourself LOL ,check them out . If she don't like it ,she won't shoot it.
 
God,Mother,Country,and Hot Rods. Done with political crap.LOL

Some great points, Mike - thanks!
 
I'll be checking with her and seeing if she still wants one, now that Spring is going to be here (hopefully) soon. During the winter, things kind of wither on the vine....Shocked
