Any point in having the trigger modded to reduce the pull?

That would help. I like the safety and speed of a revolver for her. Do you recommend anything that could make it easy for her to pull first shot with hammer down

A good pistolsmith can smooth out that DA pull, maybe change a spring or two. That particular pistol is pretty amenable to that kind of work.

Good news. I will search that option out. That might be better than opting for a completely different pistol.

Yes...all of those things. Plinking, competition, hunting, home defense. They're good all-around long guns with a wider variety of applications than most. Easy to shoot, low recoil, easy to modify, wide variety of accessories. They're reliable, durable, and low maintenance (some brands more than others). Not an accident that they are by far the best-selling long gun of the last decade or two.
