    Smith and wesson M&P9c and the springfield xdsc and the xdm compacts. Daos with 10 to 19 round capcitys. We own both the m&p9c and the xdsc in 9mm and they have been great guns.

    The Springfields and M&Ps are striker-fired precocked guns, like Glocks, not true DA. She had a FTF with my Glock 19 and wasn't happy waiting for hangfire to chamber a new round. Hence the idea of a DA/SA decocker or true DA.

    I'm a +1 on the HK P2000 SK! My 9mm is pushing 4,000 round down the pipe and my .357 Sig EDC is approaching 1,000. Never had a hick up, miss feed, stove pipe, or any issues. I converted my triggers from LEM V2 (8.0 lbs) to a LEM V1 (5.5 lbs) and they are a sweet break with a long prep. One thing additional benefit is I have the P2000 mags w/X-Grips as my reloads which give the SKs about another 1" of grip.

    JMHO!

    I know this doesn't address the three guns you listed but since others have mentioned Sigs, thought I would throw in my 2 cents. I own a Sig P238 that I love. Carry it in a PT belly band when I go running. It's a perfect size for that. My husband just bought a 938 and really likes it. It's become his primary carry gun.

    I realize she's not looking for a Glock due to the FTF BUT I carry a G19 and wouldn't carry anything else. It just works. I haven't had a single issue with it and I run it well and safely. I have very small hands,even for a woman (ring size is a 4 1/2). Any gun I buy, I have to be able to work the slide and clear malfunctions safely and confidently. I can do that with Glocks, no problem. Plus, Glocks couldn't be easier to take apart and clean. I had a Springfield XDsc. I was accurate and loved shooting it but the spring was too stiff and I could not manually lock the slide back. I ended up trading it for a Glock 30sf, which I shoot even better and I got a bigger caliber to boot.

    Long-winded answer but it really boils down to personal preference and how well you work all aspects of the gun, not just shooting it. Just my 2 cents.

    Update: Bought her the Beretta PX4 subcompact for a Christmas surprise since the run started before I could get her to the store. Transferred it to her Friday. She's pleased as punch.

    M&P9c all the women new to shooting love the natural point of aim and the comfort/easy of target acquisition. It is just a bit smaller then a Glock 19 but a little bigger then a Glock 26 so it is more comfortable to shoot and still easier to conceal. If you wish I have one you can shoot see as I to am in MI. Just depends on how far you are from me.. Private Post message with me. I should also be able to get a Glock 26 for her to shoot in a side by side comparsion.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    My wife loves shooting my Glock 19, but she chooses to carry a smith and wesson 637.

    My wife also loves the G19, but see what your wife thinks of an FN FNS or a HK P2000.
