What is the best gun for a woman?
 
I'm what to get a gun that my wife can use without no problem. I was thinking of a glock 9mm.

Is it for CCW or home protection?

Loaded question.

Long and the short, whatever gun she handles best.

My wife cannot get the PF-9 to cycle properly but tears it up with the 1911. it all depends on HER and NOT our opinions.

True. Depends on some many variables. It all comes down to : When the pressure is on what do you want to have in your hands.

joehawk 02-05-2012 06:07 PM

Or her! lol

Keginth28 02-05-2012 06:13 PM

This is for home protection when I'm not Home, thanks

Everyone and I mean EVERYONE wants their family protected in that situation. Best advice is a gun that takes no thought to operate under severe duress. Thus: revolver. IMHO

Just point and pull the trigger.

As they already say, it depends on her. But I will add one point that's very important to consider regarding automatics. Women, on the average, are less strong than men. Take my wife....please. (Just kidding dear, put the rolling pin down). My wife is around 5'5 and has small hands with very little hand strength. She's always handing me jars and stuff and saying "Here, open this". She absolutely cannot rack the slide on any of my autos. Even the Browning Buckmark 22. That one issue right there can scratch automatics for many women. Granted, I know women who can handle autos without a problem. But smaller women can have a problem. Just something to make sure you consider.

My Kahr CM9 is ever bit as much a point and shoot gun as any revolver. The desire for simplicity doesn't eliminate autos. Just certain ones.
