Go to a range where you can rent a few different guns for her to try.
Just having her pick out a gun she may like the look of, may not be the best choice.
Try a 380 & a 9MM caliber (((the 380 using HST ammo is pretty good self defense ammo and has less recoil then the 9MM))))
The S&W EZ firearms work great and easy to use.
If she is going to be carrying in her purse, Get get a Lady Smith or any wheel gun.
A lot safer then a glock type striker fire.
Just a thought after seeing and hearing of guns going off in handbags accidentally.
