Gotta' agree with what's above.
Small frame revolvers, tiny autos, that still "pack a punch" are NOT fun guns to shoot in most cases.
There is a world of difference between getting into the sport, and toting a defensive firearm. The two really have nothing to do with each other.
People can be "into" shooting without carrying, also people can carry without being "into" shooting.
As stated above, a good .22 target pistol is one of the most fun and easy to shoot pistols in the world. The same goes for a full size 9mm.
There's also nothing wrong with a medium or full frame revolver in .357 or .38Spcl.
It really all depends on her and what SHE likes. Most of all, do YOU want to get her into shooting, or does SHE want to get into shooting?
If she's not wanting to get into it...well your going to be in trouble no matter what you buy.
As stated above, let her pick out her gun.

I got lucky. I love the first carry pistol I bought. I bought the Kahr P9 which is almost identical to the CW9. I've never had a malfunction; it's light and small, and the DA trigger action keeps it safe for purse, pocket, or holster carry.

I would advise you to decide on what you are trying to accomplish. If you want a carry gun for a person who is not "into" guns - then you want a light revolver, probably an alloy frame snub 38 spl. If you are trying to get the GF interested in shooting, then you want something else - either a larger heavier revolver, or a semi-auto. My wife is not "into" guns but she likes shooting my larger revolvers. She does not like my 380 semi-auto (too complicated), and thinks my light snub 38 has too much recoil to be fun.

Don't do it. She will not enjoy shooting an Airweight J-frame, even with .38 Spls. Let her pick her own. If it has to be a revolver, I would highly recommend the Ruger SP-101. Not an airweight, but a smaller frame and comfortable to shoot at the range. Get what SHE likes.

That's a big +1 from me!
