Here ya go!! A women's perspective will be a LOT better!!If she is new to shooting a small gun probably wouldn't be the best thing to start out with. I have found that the smaller the handgun, the more felt recoil you have. If there is a range close by where you can rent different guns, it would be good if she could go and try lots of different models to find what suits her best. Does she have much experience shooting?
Appreciate that your wife wants to get into shooting. The only suggestion I can make to you in regards to what firearm to get her is take her to a few gunshops/gunshows, let her handle everything that she wants, and let her choose one that fits her hand the best.Loooking for a glock for my wife well anygun for that matter, shes 5'2" 105lbs so its gotta be something smaller for her to handle
