I'll be the odd one out and say if its for when your not home, and if she can get freaked out, I would go with a revolver.  Its easy, its not too big.  You can get a 38spl or something like that.  My point is that if there is a safety or a need to cock it, then that can be an obsticle in a time of panic that can allow an intruder to get to her.  A revolver can be pointed and shoot and there is no thinking behind it and normally never a jam or worry about clearing.  Thats just my 2 cents.  Use a semi auto for the test but get something for her that she doesn't have to think about if her lifes in danger.

Thats a good point...
I think I will try to get her a semi-auto though, something that does have at least one safety,   my cousin has a nice little .380 that is set up kind of like a 1911,  I brought it home to clean up one day, and she really took to it,  fit her nicely, she could hold the grip safety, and reach the other with her thumb without her hand being in the way of the slide when it kicks back..  Plus I like the idea of having more than 5-6 shots without fumbling on a reload.. I mean, whos gonna get up after one-two-three,  but if its multiple people, and its in a panic, Id like to be able to quickly drop-grab-click..

Studies have shown that people who carry a .45 have small testicles.  icon_razz Nice 9s you got there!  You will have a blast with it.  Great day trip in spring: rowlett creek sand bass run coupled with a shooting session at garland public shooting range. Lots of fish in the creek right there by the range come spring.  And if the fish aren't cooperating you can take out your frustration on a target.  Have fun!   icon_biggrin

glock 19 might be a good choice , 15 in the clip and one in the pipe only saftey is built into the trigger by the way that is a 9mm, NEVER HAD A JAM OR MISS FIRE . yet. and thats my two cents   Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone

In regards to having to mess around with cocking the gun or a safety - that is the reason I got the Beretta PX-4's, they have a decocking lever which means when you jack a round into the chamber you simply push the lever down and the hammer falls forward but does not contact the firing pin and even cannot contact the firing pin in the uncocked position even if it is dropped on the hammer and the trigger is disengaged also.  Next you immediately push the lever back in the up position, now you have a round in the chamber and the hammer is uncocked but the gun has a double action trigger so the gun is safe and all you have to do is pull it out and start pulling the trigger - no cocking or safety to fiddle with.  I got a bunch of reloading supplies at a recent gun show and I reloaded 300 rounds of hot 9mm jacketed hollow points to practice with.  I wanted to practice with the same ammo I am going to use for self defense.

WOOHOO!! We finally got our CHL's in the mail this week!!! icon_mrgreen Now my wife is inviting the kids to go to the range with us to practice.  P.S. Has anyone been up to the Cheaper Than Dirt store in McKinney?  I have heard they have pretty good deals.

congrats on CHL. My dad recently took the class as well.

I went to CTD when it first opened.  it is a nice store.  I like how they display the guns.  lots of ammo. i will like it more when they start stocking reloading supplies.
