Behold, the Special Introductory Revolver...
It's a Smith & Wesson Model 31-1, circa 1971, in .32 S&W Long. With its mild cartridge, easy-to-hold small frame, 4-inch barrel, Barney Fife appearance, and innocuous "Regulation Police" moniker, I've used it to introduce a good half-dozen people to the joys of handgun shooting.
At the risk of sounding hopelessly politically correct, new (read: Non-Traditional) shooters are how we are going to keep guns around for the next generation. Whether your interest lies in sport shooting, collecting, or keeping the King of England out of your face, it's important to recognize that we already pwn the Middle-Age White Dude market. If we, the ballistically-enlightened, wish to grow as a demographic in the future, we need to actively cultivate people outside the traditional hunting grounds. We have Bubba: We need Bubbette, Bubbalito, and Bubba: The Next Generation. It's important to have a fun, non-threatening gun to let new shooters use when you invite them for their first range trip.
You are inviting new shooters for their first range trip, right?
