Big question. Can she rack a slide? An external hammer is easier to rack if you cock it first. You better find out before you jump. Have her shoot the gun before you buy. I have seen too many looks and feels good but does not shoot good episodes. The wife of someone on this forum bought a BG on looks and feel and hated it after she shot it.
