Default Looking for a 9mm

Looking for a 9 mm for the wife. What brand do you all recommend. I've looked at Glocks and Beretta thus far

I have had a few 9mm's. My favorite by far is a SIG P320. For your wife though the Ruger LC9 wouldn't be a bad choice

Take her to a range and let her try some then she can decide.

Does the striker fired version of the lc9 if you go that route. My wife has one. Very smooth trigger for a woman's hands

+1 try them at the range. The pistol having to fit their hand means it's hard to pick one out for another person.

My wife is a Walther fan, but man she had to try everything before settling on them. She carries a PPS; the original version. She has a P22, also. And has a PPQ 9mm and SW99 .45 on her wish list.

Mine carries the glock 43. She likes the fit better than the LC9

Anyone shot a 9mm Luger? The grip looks like it would fit a woman’s hand nicely
