A friend of mine is looking for a new handgun to carry. Here's what she's looking for. I'm thinking I'll be looking for a single stack 9, but I'm open to suggestions
These were her wants.
-Full Grip (she wants the pinky on the grip, that does away with most of the small 380's)
She has smaller hands so I'm thinking single stack. I've tried to talk her out of the need for a safety, but since she's a new shooter I can understand the "uneasy" feeling about carrying one in the chamber with no safety. I'd rather get her into something she feels comfortable carrying than push my own views of gun safety/rediness on her.
So is there a light polymer framed single stack 9mm with a longer grip and safety that you can think of? I can't think of one which makes me think we'll have to go to a metal frame or get rid of the external safety.
