Gotta agree. If she's on a budget, Bersa .380.

My wife qualified for her HCP with her Bersa .380, and enjoys shooting it.

They have gone up a bit in price he last few years, I guess people caught on to what a decent little gun it is.

Fiancée just got the Berretta PX4 Storm Sub-Compact 9mm. She loves it. She shot a .380 but she felt it kicked more than the solid frame of the PX4. It also has a decocker and ambidextrous safety which made me more comfortable about her carrying it.

I am considering purchasing the compact in .40.

My biggest complaint with mom's P238 is that it's a single-action only with no decocker. To lay the hammer down, Sig ONLY recommends unloading the gun and dry-firing it.

. My wife loves shooting my sr9c but struggles gripping the slide to pull it back. She is going to rent some guns in the next week or so to see what she likes. Right now she likes the s&w bg380. It doesn't bother her. I may let her keep it. But she really really likes my sr22. I may have to try and find her one....

I had a fella show me an easy way. Have her grip the slide with her left hand (if she's right handed) and push the gun forward. My problem was solved.

I'm glad I found this thread from last month - I'm in the same boat with some interest expressed by my wife. She's never shot before (other than a couple random pot shots behind her uncle's house as a teenager).

She actually expressed interest in getting a carry permit, if nothing else just for the training opportunity.
I'm hungry and tired. Don't poke my belly.

The dust has settled on our situation. My girlfriend now has a Ruger GP100 4" loaded with Speer 135 GR 38+P Gold Dot in her nightstand and a Ruger LCR loaded with the same ammo in her office desk downstairs. She may also carry the LCR if she gets her license. She prefers the revolvers due to simplicity.
