A M627 as a purse gun?
Here's a thought, ask her what she wants.
Regardless of the circumstance, if I ever find myself in a gunfight with a woman, the one gun I pray she had to draw would be the 8 round N frame S&W from a purse.
No offense, jsinsak, but unless she is required to walk 5 blocks from the parking garage to work, at night, in downtown Detroit, she does not need that much firepower. The surprise of a woman defending herself with a firearm is usually enough deterrent in itself. Competent firearm handling fortifies the surprise and drawing an N frame from a purse doesn't lend itself to consistent muscle memory.
