My wife got the shooting Bug! she was never into guns until recently she's been wanting to learn to shoot, since she will be a stay at home mom in the next month or two. So yesterday I took her out to shoot my LCP, G19 and 1911. I really thought she would like the LCP but I was WRONG. She preferred the Glock 19 gen 4. more like she loved it. So this leaves me thinking she needs her own gun as to not use mine :). She had a hard time running the slide for any of the guns but was finally able to do it better with the glock because grip was better for her, but she still struggled.
Now I know the best thing would be to go try different guns, but there are not a lot of gun rental places around here. Most of the ranges don't have a lot of newer stuff to rent. So I want to narrow it down. Now someday she would like to carry so it has to be semi compact. I think the G19 is too big for her to carry so I wanna get other opinions. I think a 38 wheel gun would be more to her liking but she seems to like the Semi's. So what does your wife or significant other like to shoot? Or if any of you ladies have tips.
