They are nothing more than "novelties".

They're junk. They're good for nothing more than a point blank gut shot.

Get your wife a Ruger LCP, or a Kel Tec P3AT. Very compact, easy to shoot, and you get 6+1 rounds of .380 firepower. It should do the trick. That Ruger SR9 will work well for you, but take a look at the P345.

Beretta Tomcat, Ruger LCP, Walter PPK, KelTec P3AT...

Honestly though, if she isn't strong enough to pull the slide back on a Glock 19, she'll probably have problems operating any pistol.

Full autos are illegal in California and something that small would be useless for automatic fire anyway. The Phoenix MP25s have a 6 round magazine and are semi-auto.

I'd avoid junk guns though, especially if it is for your wife. It's possibly her life at stake, why save money?

very true, i was reading up about it and a lot of people say that the .25 ACP is not very good and would recommend going with the .22 if anything. I also came across a couple folks saying that its sort of a puzzle gun with a lot of safeties and one police officer said he would not carry it around with a round in the chamber for fear of safety defects. any other suggestions? i was looking at some .38 specials but i dont want her to break her wrist hahaha. (the more i look the more i feel like she'll probably have it for about 2 weeks and then it'll turn to my ankle back up)
