Also look at the Walther PPS and S&W Shield and SPringfield XDs. Let her feel these single stacks along with the .38 and 380s

We will definitely get her training. She has insisted on that. I am totally for her to be comfortable and trained.

I gave in and tried a Shield and now own one. I carry a 380 KelTec (old school version of LCP or whatever). The little 380s have a pretty snappy recoil due to size.

My Shield has the Apex carry kit and it's much better than a stock trigger. Added HD night sights and it's accurate. I still prefer my Glock 19 for carry but the Shield or 380 when I need to be very concealed.

I'm with everyone who recommends letting her try and see what she likes best. Even better if you can rent or borrow a few to shoot. A quality holster and belt are critical to comfortable carry as well and many companies make real gun belts that are leather so they don't make you look like an off duty cop or soldier wearing an instructor belt lol.

My wife prefers the S&W air weight 38. She's surgical with it. I carry a sheild 9mm. I'm not a big pistol person. My side arm is only ment to keep me in the fight until I can get to my rifle.

You'll have some mags too when my buddy gets back. He got "called in to work" unexpectedly. I'm not actually sure where he is but he texted today that he would be home soon.

Thanks, I believe the credit goes to my fans and sponsors but most importantly to Fatty for providing this venue of communication.

I have always believed in revolvers are best for ladies less to go wrong in a time of need. That said I just bought a Glock 43 9mm I love it better them all of my other pistols. I took my wife to the range a few weeks ago with her revolver and several Glocks including the 43. She likes it better and shot it better then all the rest. One thing if she likes it or any semi auto make sure she can work the slide ok on her own.

Well we just left probate court and have applied for our license. Now we wait. We will go to some gun stores after the new year and see if we can get her something to shoot. Thanks for all the input.

I've got a 642 Airweight too. I bought it for my wife. She likes it. She's 5'2" and weighs 100lbs. The +P loads are pretty dang close to a .357.

We took the kids to Chattanooga this weekend. My wife did this package deal at the Choo Choo Hotel with the polar express train ride, etc for the kids. I carried the Airweight the entire time. It's a great little conceal carry pistol.
