Best first semi-auto for home defense
 
What do you guys suggest as first pistol for a women, was thinking of Glock 19 or the Ruger SR9, don't want much recoil. Any help appreciated, and I live in Northern CA, wonder if there are restrictions here???

I believe CA has a 10 round maximum magazine capacity.

What is your experience level with handguns? That will help with recommendations.

I like Glocks, but the SR9's have a good reputation.

.45 is the way to go

My lady's 1st and Favorite semi-auto handgun is the Kimber model 1911 .45acp the recoil isn't bad and it has GREAT stopping power(self defense)..

Thank you for your suggestion, I've heard a lot about 1911's aren't they pretty expensive?

Not much experience, I have a Ruger Single Ten revolver and a couple of .22 rifles. But would love to try a semi-auto

You would be hard pressed to beat a Browning Hi-Power chambered in 9mm.
