My fiancee is downtown as we speak braving the Fulton County licensing process, so I'm going to surprise her with a suitable carry gun and would like some input. She's shot my Glock 19 and doesn't mind the recoil, but she really doesn't care for the brass being ejected around her, so a revolver is a logical choice. I was thinking of getting one chambered in 9mm mainly because I like to stock up on ammo for anything I own, and I already have plenty of 9mm ammo but no .38/.357. It looks like my choices in that caliber are pretty much either a Taurus 905 or a S&W 940 J-frame. The Taurus appears to have an external hammer, while the 940 is hammerless. 940's haven't been made in a while, but the 905's are still available NIB. With either of these, I would be looking at the stainless steel versions and I would add a set of Crimson Trace grips (pink, per her request) to either. Would either of these be a good choice for a woman with little firearms experience to carry, or is there something else I should look at? (We'd take a class to improve both our skills before I think she would start to carry it.) Any disadvantages to the 9mm chambering, or problems with the moon clips? Is a hammer vs. hammerless design preferable? Any other reason to choose the Taurus vs. the S&W, besides the S&W being a few hundred $$ more expensive? Since this is (sort of) a surprise, she can't try in advance, but I have no problem trading the gun for something different if it turns out she doesn't like it. I just want to make sure the idea is viable in the first place.
