FEG PA-63. It's small and lightweight and fits in her purse easily. It is a 9mm, although it uses the 9x18mm Makarov rounds. She also has the upgraded recoil spring since the factory spring doesn't absorb quite as much force with the 4" barrel.

I hear a lot of people say that, but to me I think about what "could happen" if she finds her self alone, in a bad situation, unarmed. I won her over quite awhile back with this video:

I never thought of sending that to her. I will now

Better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6

nobody who actually shoots it likes a Kel-Tec. You don't carry a Kel-Tec because you like it, you carry a Kel-Tec because your environment makes it impossible to carry a real gun.

NOBODY should carry a gun somebody else picked out for them.

Your wife needs to shoot a lot of different guns and decide for herself and NOT based on color or weight. She has to actually shoot it, a lot, before she decides. At LEAST a full box.

No lightweight pistol or revolver is going to be a good choice for a beginner, male or female.

To answer the question:
a Kel-Tec .380 and a Rossi .44 Special.

Semi-auto pistols are for people who like guns, shoot for fun, and care to learn the procedures. A beginner who consents to carry a gun because you want her to, should carry a revolver.
knuckledragger5 and mistifier like this.

2005 F-250 XLT SuperCab long bed 135k. Torque Pro. 3X Fumoto's. Dieselsite coolant filter. BPD EGR cooler. Blue Spring. Rotella ELC. Rotella T6. Rev-X this year. Archoil 9100 last year. Improved HFCM plug. 24" wipers. PIE. AutoEnginuity.

That just means that she gave you permission to buy a new gun
