Mlst importantly... Let her handle and feel the comfort of the gun itself. Have fun shopping!

I know a lot of older women who like revolvers due to the gun's easy operation.
Since the .22lr is excluded then the next logical choice would be the .38 caliber.

Oh ranger! I'm not an old lady! My son already taught me the basics of shooting and reloading. Once I purchase the gun, he will teach me how to clean and reassemble it.

Some guns that are user-friendly, nice looking, and right-sized are Taurus PT-940's (.40 S&W), and PT-911's (9MM). 7" OAL, 5"high, 3.875" barrel.
around $500. They come in blue, stainless, blue with gold trim, and stainless with gold trim. Even though they are 7" long they are easy to conceal because of the short 5" overal height. They have 10+1 capacty. Disassembly is easy: Remove magazine, shuck the round out of the chamber. Press the decocker, turn the takedown latch 90 degrees counter clockwise. Pull the slide off the front of the gun. Remove the recoil spring/guide doodad, remove the barrel. To put 'em back together, put the barrel into the slide, put the recoil spring/guide into the slide, slip the slide onto the rails and push it to the rear until the takedown latch flips back to the locked position. Load. Enjoy.

I have to 3rd the Ruger SR9c. The grip on the Glock may be too big for smaller hands. I dont have large hands and I have problems with the Glock grips except for the G36. I have not tried the new Gen 4. My wife's hands are smaller and the SR9c fits her. Comes with a 10 round mag and a 17 round mag if it is legal in your state. Fully loaded with the 10 round mag and 124 grn 9mm it weighs approximately 28 oz. Recoil is very manageable and it has a thumb safety in addition to the trigger safety. My wife can load the mags with the supplied loader and she can rack the slide. She is 5'2", 120 lbs and we have 5 grandkids. I wont tell her age.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Because my wife wont get on the forum. My wife chose her SR9c and I bought one for myself after she let me shoot hers over a month later.

...because many times ladies won't tell their guys to let the ladies pick their own firearms. Other times it takes the example set by some gents, to encourage other gents to let their ladies do their own gun shopping. Anything is easy if you know how to do it.

Just my two cents, of course.
