    and Im learning to shoot left handed. At the moment, I have a Taurus 709 Slim.
    It's a little large for me to conceal, forgot to tell everyone, Im also only 5'2. Short and curvy.

    Any recommendations for me as far as a pistol and a holster for on-body carry ?
    Hi Danegrl-
    I am new to CCW also, did get some great recommendations from the local gunshop, but also enjoyed the youtubes there is a female police officer that gives some great CCW tips for women including different holsters, and how to wear them. Good luck with your selection, Be safe! Hrstang

    The Sig P238 is light, easy to rack and little receoil. The only problem would be to be effective you have to carry it cocked and locked, meaning one in the chamber and the safety on. You might feel uncomfortable at first carrying that way, but it shoots great and works well with a crimson trace laser.

    Hello and welcome from Central FL - might want to look at a S&W M&P compact 9mm - my son has one and it's easy to handle. I agree with going to a local gun shop and looking for options. Small revolvers are always a good bet but some of the extra light-weight ones have a feisty little recoil.

    Welcome from Georgia. Being a guy, I can't speak from my experieince, but my wife (5'0 and 105#) favors a S&W J-Frame 38 Special. She can get off a shot double action, but given time, she can also transition to single action for stability and ease. I carry a 4" 1911 but I also like the fact her revoler is very forgiving and reliable with less possibility of a malfunction. I haven't had my hands on one yet, but made a recommendation for my daughter (4'10 and 125#) that she try one of the "Remora" type holsters which don't rely on belts, loops, etcetera and can be positioned pretty much anywhere in the waist band. Regardless, get your hands on as many different types as possible and choose what's comfortable and functional.

    For some people the flat shape of semi-autos print very badly, but the more organic shape of a compact revolver doesn't seem to draw the eye. Most people find a snubbie more difficult to shoot accurately than a semi, but if you can conceal it well then consider going with a mid-weight version to tame the recoil.

    You'll get used to the weight (kinda comforting after awhile), but you'll want to make sure your shots are well placed if you've only got 5-6 rounds...
