What they said.

Also have her check out this site. There's a good section on finding a gun.

First thing I did when we decided to get a handgun was to sign up the wife, daughter, and myself for a handgun safety class. Class we took was really good and let use shoot a 22 semi auto, 9mm semi auto, and a 357 revolver with 38 special rounds. It gave us a starting point on the differences between the calibers along with semi vs revolver. They also made sure we shot the revolver both DA and SA so we knew that difference too. It was a great experience for us all.

A semi-auto adds a lot of complications to carrying that she may not take to well.
I suggest she watch some videos, as well. On youtube, Falia - of Falia photography, has a lot of stuff for women - choosing guns, types, how to carry... They are very well done videos.
I would recommend the ruger lcr. A nice compact, light weight revolver. You want your wife to be able to protect herself without any complications. The revolver will eliminate the jams, unable to rack the slide, difficulties of loading and give you the sense of security of knowing your wife can handle that firearm.

It is nice to see those who have little or no experience educate themselves before purchase. To few do it these days. It's unfortunate that so many grow up not being around firearms. I got my first at the age of 8 or so. A single shot .410 Then I got my shotgun at age 10, a lt 20 gauge. I grew up around hunt clubs and guns. They've never phased me. I take my 9 and 11 year old daughters to the range. I don't want them growing up thinking guns are "evil" as the educational establishment will try and teach them.

I salute you for your diligence.
