    Hey all! I'm currently looking for more women who could give me advice and input on my first pistol purchase. I have a Ruger 10/22 and I have shot a Glock 30, an H&k .45, and the S&W bodyguard .380. was thinking of a 9MM.

    HI Jess, I don't feel qualified to comment on those as I have very limited experience. My gun is a revolver, S&W .380 and airweight. It is the one that felt best in my hand when I held it. And it's good for Concealed Carry.
    But, I'd say make sure if feels good in your hand if it's for you.

    Welcome from Illinois. Not a girl but I have 5 daughters. They all like my son's S&W shield. Give that gun a try.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    My best friend has been shooting all her life, and has several guns. But when she tried my Sig Sauer P938 9mm, she fell in love with it. What could I do? I got her one of her own for a birthday, and she won't shoot anything else. Sig also makes a .380, the P238, but with only a 1/4" difference in size it makes little sense to carry the lighter caliber.

    Ultimately it will come down to what feels right in your hand, so try a bunch of them before you buy. My friend is 5'6" and maybe 110 lbs in a wet fur coat, but she has no trouble handling a 9mm, especially one that fits her hand as perfectly as the Sig. Good luck, stick around, and give us a range report when you pick one!:D

    This is usually where a highboy burn would come in but since he doesn't come around anymore I guess I'll save it.

    Welcome from Texas. My daughter likes my SIG 239 in 40, and loves my S&W 3913 Ladysmith in 9mm. Both are single stack, alloy framed DA/SA, semi-autos. She is small, about 5', 110, with small hands.

    Welcome to TFF.
    I am not a woman but I can say my wife carry's a Rugger LCP and is going up to a .38 but has not decided which one yet.
    See wants to switch to a wheel gun that is why she is looking for the right .38 one that fits her hand and feels comfortable for her.
