    I'm a lefty, and the slide lock and mag release seem even handier for me than for 'righties'. The safety is the problem.

    Some guns have ambidextrous safeties; some can easily have them added. With training, any DA/SA auto is fine - just decock manually.

    Also, don't forget DA only autos and have her try revolvers.

    Sounds like the S&W MP is very ambi and might work well for you, I have never tried one. As a fellow lefty I carry the Glock 26 or 19. The glocks are so simple to operate that I find them very easy left handed. The ring or triger finger works great for the mag release. It actually works better for me than right handed because my thumb does not reach it with a normal grip on the gun. As others have stated if you use the sling shot or similar methods of releasing the slide everything works great. On a side note I find with most ladies finger strength that the sling shot method is best anyway.

    My young bride is a lefty and really likes her FN-P9. There's now a compact model available.
