Default fire arm for my wife?

OK guys I am wanting to get my wife a hand gun. One small enough to carry around in her car, but big enough to do the job. Any suggestions!

How big is your wife? How often does she shoot a handgun? What does she shoot in a handgun(if she does shoot that is), what's your price range to spend on one?

Be smart and let her pick out her own. Go to the range and let her test drive a few. If you get her one, she may not like it and never carry it. She might want a 1911, you never know.

Yeah. We need to know more info. Like, 'is she hot?'
Just kidding! Just kidding!

But seriously, has she ever shot before? How much experience?

Is she 110 lbs and only wears bikinis, or is she 400 lbs and could hide an under folder ak without printing?

Does she express an interest in any type of specific gun?...

She hasn't shot in a while... But she knows how to handle one. she just got a new job and she has to go through down town Birmingham Alabama. I want to get her something small but not tiny. She is about 5'4" full blooded Italian. She can handle what ever I get her.
