DUDE! Be a fanboy somewhere else. Did you even read the original post? You talking ballistics and arguing about how God himself invented Glock does not help me find Kim a gun that would be right for her. So beat it

i'm making a case for high-capacity, striker-fired autos. I've brought up glock, but my arguments have been made in a way that easily allows for a vast number of different weapons, not just glock.

its been my contention that the glock 26 with grip extensions might be a good option, as per your OP. that was challenged, so i've countered. politely, calmly, and had a good time doing so.

whats the problem?

A good commander size 1911 makes a good carry piece. I wanted to get one for my daughter but she didn't feel the love and it made me very sad. But she did like the Sig 229. So I got her one of those. I'm still trying to get her to feel the love of the 1911. But in the mean time it's really hard to go wrong with a Sig Sauer. As "modern combat" pistols go I think it's one of the best out there. She picked up a couple Glocks but put them down pretty quick. She ticked off the counter guy and made me roll when she said she said "plastic guns feel like toys kids play with". She's a pretty small girl (5'2" 105#) but didn't have any trouble with a smaller .40. And she's scary accurate with it at 25 yards and does pretty dang well at 50 yds.

I will agree with that...I decent 38 or 357 snubby make for a good self defense weapon.

Mohawk-regardless of the "facts" presented by a questionable source (buckwheat), a Ruger LCR would be an excellent 1st handgun for her. It has a GREAT trigger for a DAO revolver, is extremely simple to operate, and is ergonomically correct for smallish to medium hands. The long trigger pull would be an advantage in preventing negligent discharges. You don't need umpteen rounds IF you're trained properly and at close range. With a revolver she don't have to worry about having sufficient hand strength to rack the slide. Too many people overlook this. Just because she can pull the trigger on a small auto don't mean she can load/unload/clean it. She won't have to worry about malfunctions from limp wristing it. Also she don't have to wonder/worry is the magazine in it? Is the magazine loaded? Is 1 in the pipe? I advised RSG on the LCR and she loves it. I honestly believe she (the girl in question) will too.

If you listen to any advice, there it is.

That is correct Mohawk. He told me to go try one out and everything it is a wonderful first time gun. And my honest opinion I will ask Bear about my next gun I decide to purchase too!!! He knows what he is talkin about!!!
