Gunhand,

I've got an S&W 15 I'm going to let her try next time she comes shooting with us.

Take her to a gun shop and let her handle a few to see what fits comfortable.

My wife's friend has been looking for a handgun for awhile now. her husband keeps telling her what "SHE NEEDS" but is dead wrong for her needs. He is telling her she needs a Beretta but they don't fit her. Her husband has nearly zero experience with firearms and it's apparent. She is a small framed woman with small hands. A Beretta 92 doesn't fit her hands but she's going to listen to him anyway.

I have recommended to her the S&W model 64, S&W model 10, Model 66, and even the Governor. I suggested the Governor after shooting a Judge with the PDX rounds.

I don't recommend snubnose revolvers or ultra compact handguns for that matter to anyone who is a new shooter. They require someone to be proficient more so than a longer barreled handgun.

Truth be told a shotgun would be the best choice for a home defense weapon especially if someone isn't going to do what it take to master a handgun.

Men underestimate women greatly. Every guy thinks the small frail woman cannot handle a full size pistol. While there might be a single item or two that needs more attention it is the exception and not the rule. I've taught several very small women basic pistol skills and they have all done very well.

They all have handled a G19 and XDM9 capably in addition to other pistols.

My wife's friend can't rack the slide on my Glock 23, My CZ 85, or any of my 1911s. Yet her husband is telling her the Beretta 92 is the gun for her. This is where I base my comments on her not getting a Semi auto.

She has another friend who went out and bought herself a Gen 4 Glock 17 and she can handle it just fine. She's 4'10" on a good day and maybe 90lbs. She works out and has the grip strength to operate the slide on anything she has shot. She wanted to trade me her 17 for my 23 because she said it fit her better.

Anyone mention the Ruger SP101 in 357 Magnum?

Small framed (5-shot) so will fit a smaller hand, with a smaller grip, but built like a tank.

If softer shooting is desired the weight will soak up 38 Special, even +P, very nicely.
