Well i have a cheap .45 now and she has shot it. I was thinking a 9 mm but i have never shot one. The .45 i have never tends to jam. So what would be a hi end brand?

I am just wondering...

If, for some reason, she had to take the firearm you normally use, could she do it?

House protection involves more than a firearm. The couple have to have a plan. They have to know exactly what to do and not deviate.
There are stories of a person shooting their partner because of a lack of planning and/or coordination.

A little scared to ask but what are you calling "a cheep 45"?
I have a RIA & A Springfield XD- Neither are near "high end"----

As far as your wife goes you could get a Ruger LCR in .357. The .38 specials have very little recoil in the gun for practice, and then for home defense you can load it up with .357's because recoil won't matter.

My wife has a 20 gauge pump and she can handle it just fine. She knows to sit in her room and wait for them to open the door and then open fire. Most women can handle a automatic or pump shotgun with no problem. #4 3 inch magnum can tear some stuff up. After the first round most intruders crawfish back out the door as fast as they came in. She also has a 380 automatic for back up when the shotgun is empty and a 9 mm. on my side of the bed when the 380 is empty. I am sure by that time they will not be in the house.

You get what you pay for. A good high point is as useful as a grease gun on a tank. It can spray bullets but its not accurate or dependable. That is all I have to say about that. I would buy a higher end gun for the wife she is worth it isnt she.

I prefer the Beretta 92.

IMO, if she's serious,

she should be able to handle it.

But any quality name-brand

full sized 9mm

pistol should do.
