Taurus PT709 if they can stand the recoil and handle the slide, as the trigger is much lighter than the Ruger LC9. The Walther PK380 (Model ?) was designed with women in mind, as it has the lightest slide rack force weight on the market and has removable backstraps for changes in ergonomics. Other than that, a Ruger SP101 in 327 Federal ought to be the cats meow and has no issue with women squeamish of an auto loader. YMMV

Thanks for the responses. Have looked at a sig p238 in a 380. Anyone have any dealings with this gun. Good or bad.

My wife carries a RUGER LCP and a Kimber Ultra TLE 45acp with Crimson Trace Lasergrips.

Why do I carry a gun? Because cops weigh too much to carry and are difficult to conceal.

Has she ever fired a semi-auto handgun or any gun for that mater??

If she has then I would recomand a Ruger LCP if not then I would recomand a Ruger LCR in 38 sp.

Too bad you are so far away, I have a brand new one for sale with the CT laser and Crossbreed holster.

She has shot a ruger sr9 and several revolvers. I have hunted with long guns since i was old enough to walk, but i have not shot pistols very much and i just don't know much about pistols. The gun shop recommended the sig and I was looking for ideas if this is a good gun or if something might be better. Looks like it is like long guns, everyone has an opinion. So we probably need to look at several, find the one that feels the best and go to the range.
