The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.
What he said. Take her out and rent everything you can get your hands on. She will tell you what is most comfortable for her :)
I've been looking at the XDs(I'm going for .45 ACP, but they make a 9mm).
Let her choose the weapon. My wife likes revolvers but chose an LCP380 for carry purposes. I would have blown it and bought her a revolver.
to the OP: thanks for posting the article.
My wife wants a sig mosquito in pink for her cc

My boss was having issues with this one. He and his wife went off gun shopping for her the other day, she REALLY liked the Kimber Solo, which is all fine n' good, however, she CANNOT rack the slide. Needless to say he didn't let her get it. The criteria for her gun: No plastic! Must be compact. Must be semi auto. Must be 9mm.
I said good luck lol.
The fact is if you buy her the 22 to start off with then when she gets her defensive handgun down the road I bet you both will still be shooting the 22 down the road and probably more the your defensive handguns. JM02

Thanks for your advice, larry, but I don't see a good reason to buy a first gun with the intention that it's not the one you actually want and will need to buy a second one. Maybe that's because of my circumstances (college student i.e. poor, also homeless i.e. not much place to keep my important things except my car) (ps - when I say homeless, I mean no place of my own. I have plenty of friends and relatives that I stay with).
In the class I took, the people who did not bring a gun rented a Glock 17, so far that's the only one I've tried. As for the flinching, I did plenty of that. There were 28 people in my class, half of the class was up at a time, so 14 of us were on the line, and three instructors were going down the line one by one helping each student shoot. Well as I was waiting my turn, every single shot made me flinch a lot, and I had to control my hyperventilating and instinct to turn and run. I did it, and when it was my turn I really did not notice any more problems, and for the rest of the class I was fine.
To me the Glock 17 was uncomfortably heavy and bulky having to carry it around all day for two days. And that was unloaded.
