If I were buying a handgun for a youngster, I would buy him/her a revolver with a long barrel.
I think from the standpoint of safety and understanding how a gun works, a revolver makes sense.
Easier to aim accurately with longer radius, harder to swing around: more consciousness of aim point. Muzzle consciousness simply takes some learning. The ease with which a short barreled handgun can be pointed at a foot or a hand makes me want that muzzle as far out there as the youngster can support.
The mechanics of how a firearm works is all right there in front of them, and is easier to understand. Plenty of time to shift to semi-auto after safe gun practice is patterned, learned behavior.

@vquad That was the original pistol I was going to buy then landed on the Browning due to the Smith that my dealer had, had no hiviz sites, nor could you add them to it. I would def consider a Smith. Plus if your holster fits and a smith comes with an extra Mag with lifetime warranty (I think) Great deal!
@GreyCoupe As far as youngsters go... I did not see the post where this is for a child?

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions.
Yes I did say that it is for my daughters but I also want to shoot it myself. Easier to justify the buy with my wife. I'm surprised that nobody commented or own the Sig 1911 in 22LR. I think the Browning may be the way to go. I have to see it and feel it in person.

I'm a Ruger MK II/MK III fellow myself.
I have the MK III 22/45 stainless at moment with 5" fluted barrel, target sights.
Love that gun. Eat's 'em and very accurate for a stock gun. Cleaning ... eh, you get used to the unusual take down.
Two more expensive (not Sig) .22 pistols went down at a youth steel challenge I was working as a vol. Got my Ruger out. It carried us for two days and probably 300 to 350 shooters putting 10 rounds each downrange.
Problems...front sight came loose. Solution: Loctite and a small screwdriver. Couple failures to feed. Solution. Blasted it with synthetic safe gun scrubber, ran a bore snake through and put about 3 drops of oil on it.
That gun's not going anywhere w/o me.

@snakeshooter. Right you are. I read the original post and missed how lead into <--no pun intended. about for kids.
@O.P-Anyhow. The opinion I gave should work as well. My Gfreind is petite and likes shooting my Browning. But there again it will cost you an extra 20.00 for an extra clip. (pending on model) The Smith Might be something to look at 279.00 comes with Hi-Viz sites and an extra clip. Plus breaks down easy for clean up as I recall. Also being a 1911 style frame I bet you could pop it in a sig holster, or just about any auto holster you may ALREADY own. The Buckmark camper as well as the Ruger are more Lugar looking and may not fit to well in lets say a 40mm or a 9mm holster. So that is another 20.00 savings with the Smith. Plus warranty on Smith albeit Browning stands behind all their guns. (You only gotta ship it to em with insurance) Really it is a gun for plinking but I bet you after getting it. You will shoot that more often and more rounds due to cost and no recoil then you will your cannons. IMO
