I've always been partial to the H&K .40 cal with synthetic stock, or a SIG. She has never fired a handgun, so I was thinking of a simple 9mm for her. Any suggestions?
H&K and SIG are both good choices. As for the female, (and I'm not trying to start a fight, just stating facts) some women have a hard time racking the slide. Head over to a gun shop and let her manipulate it before purchasing.
My girlfriend is a LEO and has no issues. My sister opted for a revolver due to not having the strength in her hands to consistently rack the slide. Add a little bit of stress/pressure because something is going bad and the revolver was the smarter decision for her.
