Default what poly pocket gun should I get for my little sister?

She is getting her ccw soon and I want to get her something she can carry.

I been thinking of a Cz rami 9mm because of my love for my Cz p01 but I don't know?

A g19 or smaller would fit the bill, what do you think?

Anyone out there have a wife, daughter, sister, ect that carries?

I recommend the S&W M&P Shield 9mm. Smaller and lighter than the Glock 19. I have both but i prefer the Shield for concealing purposes.

Just saying..IF you decided to like Shield.. get it now. They are hard to get. I had to wait months for it.

I would love a shield for her but I live in California and it's off the ok list.

That's the perfect size handgun tho.

I'd say don't worry about what you'd like. Take her to the shop with you and let her handle a few guns. Even shoot them if she can. Offer her advice or suggestions but let her pick the gun.

She's much more likely to actually carry a gun that she likes.

My wife doesn't carry but she likes my bersa 380. Light on recoil, manual safety, and a double action first pull are all good for carry. Very affordable as well

"pocket gun" ?? If she is truly going to pocket carry, it depends
a LOT on body type and prefered clothing style.

Concealed carry for a woman is a whole different critter. Clothing,
lifestyle, anatomy make big differences,

+1 on getting her to the store to handle some different guns, and I
would suggest:

The smaller the gun the harder they are to shoot and the more unpleasent they are to shoot. Small pocket guns arent good for folks new to shooting.

One of the worst things that gun makers have done to women is foist off all the small cute designs onto the "just for women" market.

Since your in commiefornia you have no ccw so there is no need for going small. New shooters regardless of gender are better served by looking at the full size guns before even thinking about the noisy crickets

What you've said here conflicts with what the original poster stated - his sister is getting her ccw.
Which is true? I don't live in Ca - and don't know it's rules.

I do agree with allowing her to choose her own gun.
