None of the local shops had Glocks for sale, she's familiar with the Glock 21, my firearm of choice (but I'm going to have to check out the FNX-45 now). They had some S&W SD9s and M&P9s but she just didn't like holding them, I'm not sure why she didn't like the SR9. This isn't her carry firearm so I don't think she even thought about a holster, but even for a quick access home defense pistol, a holster isn't a bad idea to have around.
I liked how she handled the salesman too, at first he thought it would be one of those easy woman sales, just show her something pink and she'll hand over her credit card, but after the pink revolver came out, she explained that she was doing fine on low capacity firearms and wanted a full sized standard capacity pistol. I really need her to tell me that story again, it was great!
