A pistol designed for the new female shooter from Shooting Illustrated

Offering more than a change of frame color, the Pavona has a host of features making it attractive to a diverse group of shooters. Tamara Keel shares some insights on the EAA Pavona for Shooting Illustrated magazine ...

La Femme Pavona
Many handguns marketed to women are merely an existing model painted pink. EAA has changed that paradigm with the Pavona, a pistol designed for new female shooters mechanically as well as cosmetically.

I like going to my local range on weekdays, around midday, because that’s when one is most likely to have it to one’s self. There’s hardly anybody there except a few stalwarts: A retiree working up handloads, or an attorney on his lunch hour working on draw times from his USPSA rig in one of the pistol bays, but that’s usually about it. On the day I was wrapping up testing of the EAA Pavona, there were only three people using the range.
