4 Best Handguns for Your Mom This Mother's Day

What is the best handgun for Mom this Mother's Day?

Luckily for you, we put a list together of some solid choices.

These four handguns will say "thank you" like nothing else can!

Let's take a look.

1. Ruger LCP 2 Pistol

This small .380 ACP autoloading pistol is perfect for packing on any shopping trip. Small and flat, it easily slips into a pocket holster. Get the one with a laser and she can really show a bad guy she means business.

2. Ruger LCR .38 Special Revolver

If your mother is a bigger fan of revolvers, the Ruger LCR Revolver is a great choice. It's available in many calibers, but the .38 Special may be the best choice in power and affordable practice.

3. Smith & Wesson 329 PD Revolver

We haven't forgotten about all the moms that live in big bear country. These fine ladies require some heavy lead for various threats when out in the wild. A great pick is the S&W 329 PD Revolver. Chambered in .44 Magnum, this provides some potent bear medicine. Recoil can be tamed using .44 Special cartridges for practice, and this incredible revolver weighs less than 26 ounces empty. This trusty revolver is light in the holster, but it's a beast when you need it.

4. North American Arms .22 Magnum Wasp Revolver

When she wants the smallest pistol that packs a loud tiny punch, turn to the North American Arms .22 Magnum Wasp Revolver. She can also have a .22 LR cylinder, so practice is really cheap. With five shots of .22 Magnum, this tiny revolver fits just about anywhere, and it's ready at a moments notice.
