My wife and I did our weekend target time, she was solid with my Gen 4. After she mentioned getting her own personal carry and the store let her handle a Gen 3 after she tried some smaller 9's that she hated. She loved the way it felt, gen 3 over 4 which is fine. That said, to all the ladies out there how is it for a carry? This would be a bag/purse. She didn't like the smaller Glocks in her hand and is very comfortable handling arms to my surprise. Advice to carry, if she is out and about how does she carry to best self defend?
