Default I have a ccw question about my wife

Were fairly new to cc. I have a ton of guns and ahoot often. I bought her a S&W airweight hammerless .38. She has very small hands and from crafts and sitting at a computer everyday has slight carpal tunnel in right hand. Trigger on s&w is a stretch for her short fingers an hard to pull for her. She is new to shooting and is paranoid of a hammer on a gun. She cant pull the slide back on one of my xd's. Also she owns a tanning salon so needs something on the small side to carry while working salon in evenings. Any ideas or help on what i need to get her would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

My mom has a sig p238. it is very easy to conceal and the trigger pull is not bad at all. Slide is not so tight she can't handle it. Some don't think a 380 is enough for self defense but my theory is with the right ammo and good aim it can be real effective Also has a safety. Which a lot of the ladies like.

I'd suggest the S&W M&P Shield 9mm.

another thought...

Semi Auto with one in the chamber. You could rack the slide for her, and it will always be ready to fire. Shield is a nice platform, and the trigger can be tweaked to make it a bit smoother.

Point and shoot simplicity...
