How do you know its too much if she doesnt try various models. Not all guns recoil the same way. A 1911 feels far harsher in recoil than does and xdm even though the xdm is lighter.

Get her out to the range rent different guns for her to try

how do these carry? Easy to conceal on a female? Mostly concerned about the recoil differences between the two tho bc she tends to wear big shirts... Ill most likely be getting a seecamp 32 for the "this or nothin" times

Nobody on here can sufficiently answer your questions for her to truely make a decision on what she wants, you know what you want presumable from what you have heard and reviews you have read, imho you shouldn't buy any pistol without the intended user first trying it out, take her somewhere and let her handle multiple guns even if she can't shoot them she can get a feel for them and decide what she likes. You can buy her the most expensive gun in the rack because it has a high dollar name and a reputation for low recoil but if she doesn't like how it handles she won't want to use it. Go handling/shooting if possible, who knows maybe she will pick something you haven't considered. There are many reliable guns out there besides HK and Sig, many at a lower cost as well.

Try putting the word "shoes" for "firearm"

I would not want to buy my wife shoes. She doesn't wear the stilletto's I bought her years ago.

Yes definitely... Often enough, especially at first, to be comfortable and confident.

You guys have tried every gun you've purchased before you bought them? You never relied on hundreds of forum pages, hours of video, and word of mouth to buy a gun you knew you couldn't have the opportunity to shoot prior to purchasing? I'm not being a di*% I'm literally just researching people's thoughts and opinions.
