A Sig P238, on the other hand (I've never owned one of these, either, but I have shot one) is much smoother.
But if the LCP is just for carry and small amounts of practice, it will serve her well.
utf59 shot my daughter's Elsie Pea and he is being very kind. His hands are the same size as mine and shooting this little autoloader is a real pain in the azz! It's not hard to shoot, control or hit the target but...........it's just not fun to shoot. Kinda reminds me of shooting any .40S&W. It's not a all day gun. I think we may have run a total of four mags when we went on to the S&W 29. Now that was FUN and IMHO, more comfortable to shoot than the LCP.
My daughter loves it (me thinks for the pink) but runs mag after mag with no complaints. I'm glad it's her's.
It's a small gun, did I say small?? It's truly micro.
Here it is using my Browning HP for scale.
To keep it from rotating while in your pocket I recommend a holster.
Goes bang every time I've pulled the loud switch and has had zero FTF and FTE issues.
It's canebrake approved for CCW but for a gun to take to the range for a day I'll take a pass and pack my .44 Rem Mag.
It's a chick gun, (no offense RSG) but I will throw it in my swim trunks if I need to carry on the beach or walk the dogs.
Now for you, get Elsie Pea's big brother, the Elsie Ahrrrrr. (LCR)
Loaded with .38 spl +P's and a clip draw it weighs <1#. It's what I carry in the 90º/90%+ days here in Southern Florida.
And if you want the same size but go heavy, the LCR is now available in .357 mag.
This revolver has the sweetest DA trigger I have EVER
