For those of you lucky guys that have women that carry a gun!! What are your ladies carrying? I've some what convinced my girlfriend to get her permit and to eventually get a gun to carry. Just looking for some suggestions on a good inexpensive gun for the little lady to carry. I'm wither thinking a Kahr, Kel Tec, or ,M&P.
Kahr is good, nice and small, but not "inexpensive." Bulldawg182 was kind enough to let my wife shoot his Kahr PM9; it's now on the list as her next pistol.
She also owns an XD9sc, but it's a little too wide for most of her carry situations.
Mine doesn't carry but a Glock 26 would be a great choice. I have several Glocks, Sigs, and a Beretta. For a short time had a H&K. Every person who has shot my guns has always preferred the G26.
She tried a G26 (Also courtesy of Bulldawg182 :wink: ). The grip was just the wrong length and pinshed her finger between the bottom edge and the magazine. It shoots well for her, but it's too uncomfortable for her to use in practice.
One more thing, Kel-Tec has a place in the world, but I don't think it should be a first gun. If she's going to practice with it and get familiar with firearms, I'd look for something that's a little more solid and easy to shoot.
