That little plastic Remington is something of a collectible nowadays. Don't let anyone talk you out of it for a lowball price. Check these out for sale:

Is your new area of residence as "bad" as you indicated in your original post?

Never heard of that caliber. Maybe a Chevy.

Don't let anyone discourage you. My 73 year old sister qualified for a CCW yesterday. They only made her fire 15 instead of 20 shots because they were all center mass and she has arthritis.

The true answer is

the one that fits best in your hand that you can operate proficiently under stress.

I am going through that same process right now evaluating SD tools.

I just ran across this video. The old man knows guns. He discusses the problems and some possible solutions. I have both of the North American Arms revolvers with the grips shown. The grips are comfortable and secure. I have the Glock Model 22. It's identical to the Model 19 but uses the more powerful .40 S&W cartridge. It probably has a heavier recoil spring so it may be harder to rack the slide.

The S&W revolver in aluminum and stainless (Model 638) is my daily carry gun. I use the powerful but low recoil Magsafe ammunition. I have no difficulty firing it. I do have arthritis in my hands, but it's not severe enough to have serious problems with most guns.

Take a look at the video. I'm linking to the Magsafe website as well.

Yes my residence is just as bad as I indicated 8 know sex offenders within my street and the one above it and last week the apt. building across the street was raided for drugs and a meth lab. I normally wear my Ruger LCRX 38 in the house all day.

For this situation 22lr is the only choice. Anything more will jar the hands too much. Maybe a 22mag but high end 22lr will do a lot of damage. And if you use a P22 or similar very little kick

I'm thinking I agree with this. I have a pretty good case of Arthritis in my hands and I have a 9MM Ruger that I keep in the house and take to the range occasionally just to check my aim. I usually only go through three 17 rd mags and put it away and start shooting my rifle. Just this past Tue. I went thru 100 rounds and now my right wrist and fingers are killing me.

OK so somebody is going to say I am limp wristing, but guess what? That's what folks with Arthritis do when shooting a gun with a little kick.
I won't get rid of the 9MM but I will cut down on the practice rounds.

So for that reason I am also suggesting a 22lr for those with Arthritis.

I challenge anybody who says 22 is too light in power to allow somebody to shoot them in the chest and not go down. Nonsense.

So I ended up with a LCRX revolver 38 and a Baretta Tomcat 32 Cal. I can shoot both. I have several other large handguns but not for carrying.
