Default What is best gun for Lady?

What would be the best gun for a lady for concealed carry in Florida. The weight would need to be as light as possible but still want power.

It depends on what feels good to you, where you will be carrying (purse, waistband, etc.), and how much power you're talking about.

Keltec makes some good compact 9mm pistols such as the PF9 and the P11.

The first thing I would do is go to a gun shop and put a few different ones in your hand and see what feels good.

This was the best thing I did. I even went shooting with some of my friends and shot what they had so I knew what I liked to shoot. I got a Ruger SR9C to carry and I love it. a lot of ranges will have guns you can rent, you could try that also.

If you have the money, the little Kahr's are tiny and have a good reputation. I held a littl PM40 & it was tiny.

My wife can conceal a Glock 19 in a rear holster. She's all of 120lbs and with a light shirt over a t-shirt it's tough to see. The G19 is a bit large though.

I'm picking up a CZ 83 in .380 for her this week. It also carries very well and is considerably smaller than the G19.

With so many choices (like the Kimber Solo, etc....), the thing to do is try as many as possible.
