I just find that for beginners a semi-auto has more things to keep track of versus a simple old fashion revolver. Best thing is what already others have suggested, visit a range that rents and find out what's most comfortable for her.
Everyone's different. My wife q'd with her 16 in the army but no pistol. She was a natural, too. No bad habits to break. I told her what to do and she did it. Easy peasy.

With all due respect. Isn't the 441 a taurus revolver? Maybe you meant the Smith & Wesson 442 revolver? I've shot it and consider it to be great gun for anyone and specially for a woman.
