Hers. When she took her CCW class the instructor told the class he recommends nothing smaller than a 9mm and now she has it in her head that it is the golden rule.Thanks for all the suggestions. My wife has no trouble with any of my autos when it comes to manipulating the mag release or locking the slide to the rear so that isn't an issue. She also has no problem with recoil.
I think I will look at the PM9 for her.
She doesn't carry all the time but when we go out we sometimes go our seperate ways shopping and she wants something small she can throw in her purse or in a pocket.
I will keep you posted on what I get her and how we like it.
I have no problem shooting my Rohrbaugh. For this size gun it is very accurate.Well, the PM-9 is much larger than an LCP, so I would rule that out. It's also not a pocket gun unless your pockets are bigger than mine.
Pocket 9? Rohrbach is the only choice. No fun to shoot.
I didn't say it wasn't accurate (at the distance it was designed for).I have no problem shooting my Rohrbaugh. For this size gun it is very accurate.
Again, no problems at the range. Last time out 104 rounds. A .380 is a .380, it isn't a 9mm.I didn't say it wasn't accurate (at the distance it was designed for).
I said it wasn't fun at the range. I can't imagine anyone shooting 100 rounds at the range.
If you drop down a bit to the .380, it opens a whole new range of firearms. I'm always amazed at how well my Sig P-238 performs.
(But the question was about a 9mm.)
Now there is a good option, I almost bought one of these a few years ago. A 9mm snubbie... good call on that one! With the revolver you could probably shoot +p's and +p+'s.Tell her a 9mm is .355 diameter, and a .38 is bigger so a .38 +p is just as good. LOL Maybe put her in a scandium frame .38/357 with .38 +p once she feels the super light weight of the snubie she may change her mind. Or look at a 9mm snubbie.
I would love to have a Rohrbach if I could get it for $500.If you can get your hands on a R9 do it. The longer you own it the longer you appreciate it.
