We got my girl friend a Ruger LCR 38 Special ($399), not the LCR 357 ($499).
The 38 Special is plenty for self defense and is all my girl friend could handle comfortably. It's one sweet little gun. Light as a potato chip, butter smooth trigger, reliable as dirt, and accurate as all heck. And felt recoil is minimal as evidenced in the video below. I've also included a review on the Taurus 905 ($347 at Budsgunshop.com) For the price difference (Taurus 905 $347 vs Ruger LCR 38 Special $399), I would prefer the LCR. But you watch both videos and you be the judge. I understand your logic in wanting a 9MM, and the Taurus does fit the bill in that area and may well be what you end up with. It's a nice little piece.
