holding a gun is different than firing a gun.
what feels good in the gun shop may not feel good at the range.
most guys buy what they want next in their gun stable.
before any "narrowing of the field" needs to occur she needs to handle and fire as many guns as possible.
and like BonnieB i invite both of you to the ladies forum.
the more she is involved in the process, the more likely she is to practice at the range.
personally? i hated the .380. i don't see it as a great self-defense round. resale on .380 is not great either.......if she doesn't like it you'll not get your $ out of it.
