I am a woman and I love my SR 9, if she wants a full size pistol I would say try the SR9!

Get her a Ruger GP 100, I just ordered mine, and they are sweet! I got the 4.2 inch Barrel, I'm of the female persuasion!

I would not buy her anything that she has not shot first. It is easy to hold a gun that feels good in your hand and think you like it. Then the first time it goes "Bang" you sudenly hear, "This thing sucks. I hate it".

Agree on the SR9C - My wife has had one for almost 2 years & loves it-
The slide is a bit stiff but doable & its accurate
Handles 10 & 17rd mags also

Also, different guns will have different perceived recoil with the same ammo so it's important for her to get first hand experience before choosing. One other point, as the gun gets smaller, the accuracy declines and the experience needed to handle it proficiently increases...also a small pocket or "mouse" gun is not a pleasant range experience. So if the idea is a gun for range and SD purposes that should be part of the decision process, a gun that she is averse to practicing with will do her no good when needed for defense.

Having said all of that, Glock, Smith and Wesson (M&P), Springfield Armory, Ruger, Kahr and Colt all make quality, accurate revolvers and semi-autos that will fit the bill.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
