So, the wife got her CCW permit, and wants to get her first gun to start carrying. I have the JHP .45, and she definitely doesn't like that, says it kicks too much, and she doesn't like my Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm, she says that kicks too much too (but it is the hardest shooting 9mm I know, since it's so small and light). She has shot the Ruger P89, and really likes that gun, so I'm wondering if a 9mm would be good for her, just a normal size/weight 9mm. Do you think the C-9 would qualify, as I know I can get a C-9 easily, and it would be well within our price range to get one right now. The Ruger P series might be a little more pricey than I'd like, and getting one might take some time.....plus I'd like to make sure she has a reliable gun with a lifetime warranty like my 45! I'd rather avoid the .380, as I figure if the gun is the same size, what's the point, and the .380 ammo is more expensive....... What are your thoughts, comments, etc?
