Let her make her own choice afterall she's the one that has to carry it.

You will both be happier if you do.

I would let her handle and shoot as many as she can, and let her decide.
This is true.

I have the Ruger LCP and the LC9 and you can't go wrong with either one.
I originally bought the LCP for the wife but she prefers her Taurus 85 Ultra Lite (gold trim and pearl grips).
I'm not a fan of the 380 but I'm forced to admit the LCP is very convenient to carry and I'm convinced the absolute
best CCW is the one you are going to have with you at all times! My wife loves shooting my 1911s but realistically she is never
going to have one with her when she is out and about!

She decided on that gun because she can handle, carry, and definitely send the ammo flying down range. For her upcoming birthday, she wants the Glock colored in pink camo! Eek. She loves shooting my double stack 1911 45 cal but it's too bulky for her to carry everyday. IMHO I say find a place that rents guns and have her decide what she likes. My friend did the opposite and his wife absolutely hated it. I just saw a handgun school that for a chunk of change will allow u to shoot like 20 guns; both revolvers and pistols.
Thanks I think that's exactly what I will do...she knows what will be best for her to carry and what she will feel comfortable with
