My wife can operate the slide on the SR9c and she has trouble with a double action trigger. Try it before you buy it. Make sure it is not cocked when you try it. On semi pistols with an exposed hammer, you can cock the hammer before racking the slide which makes racking a lot easier.

I was taught to respect my elders but they are getting harder to find.
those ruger lcp seem to be a good choice as a "purse gun" i mean its a .380 and stoppping power may not be the best but its definitely better than nothing, hahah and with size of these handbags women are carrying these days you could cram a .50AE in there and not even notice, but just take her out let her feel out a bunch of different things and see what she likes and doesnt like, regardless of what those people try and sell you its still the firearm that shes going to be carrying, ultimately let her make the choice ya know, but definitely steer her away from those "bargin" carry pieces that seem to be popping up everywhere, a relaible defensive piece isnt something you wanna cheap out on
