She has also been able to work the actions of all the semi-autos she has looked at so far. Her arms are a little short to shoulder them all right but she accepts that and moves on. About the only issue she has had is loading the 11th and 12 rd into one of my Springfield XD mags and even I think they are pretty tight. Unlike my wife, I would take my pickup over a corvette any day just because I wouldn't have a problem taking my pickup in the field but I would have a problem taking a vette on a good dirt road!
Thanks again for the suggestions, I look forward to any more too.
I meant don't buy a particular model unless you shoot it first. This gives her more exposure to a greater variety of guns and may get you into a gun that fits her but isn't quite as high dollar.
