    OK guys I am wanting to get my wife a hand gun. One small enough to carry around in her car, but big enough to do the job. Any suggestions!

    How big is your wife? How often does she shoot a handgun? What does she shoot in a handgun(if she does shoot that is), what's your price range to spend on one?

    Be smart and let her pick out her own. Go to the range and let her test drive a few. If you get her one, she may not like it and never carry it. She might want a 1911, you never know.

    Yeah. We need to know more info. Like, 'is she hot?'
    Just kidding! Just kidding! :D

    But seriously, has she ever shot before? How much experience?

    Is she 110 lbs and only wears bikinis, or is she 400 lbs and could hide an under folder ak without printing?

    Does she express an interest in any type of specific gun?...

    She hasn't shot in a while... But she knows how to handle one. she just got a new job and she has to go through down town Birmingham Alabama. I want to get her something small but not tiny. She is about 5'4" full blooded Italian. She can handle what ever I get her.

    The S&W Airweight models or Ruger LCR - either in 38 Special. They are a little more than $300 though... And they are hard to find right now .. due to all the craziness.
    But they are good.
    Have a female friend who recently got into conceal carry - her two are the S&W and the Ruger LCP 380. The LCP conceals very well - but she prefers the revolver (the S&W) for the simplicity. --- LCP is a little cheaper - but it is semi-auto.

    Yeah I was looking at the S&W 642 CT..... a little out of my price range.. I may just take her and let her look and some and see what she is more comfortable with.....

    My wife started with a S&W 442 revolver and just got herself a Glock 26 9mm. She doesn't even like the revolver anymore. I like carrying it in my ankle holster though.
