    Every post here is a wealth of information, but IMO the Ruger LCP, which has no manual safety, is a nice pocket pistol depending on your frame size and style of clothing you wear. I usually look at video sites and reviews on weight, reliability, production generation, bugs, etc. to find a nice fit.

    I liked the LCP but only as a "special use" weapon. where absolute concealment is a must. I have been considering one for me just for this alone. Unfortunately for her the iron sights are non existent so a laser is essential. Also the LCP is hard on the hands when shooting. Not really what I would call a range gun. That being said, if she doesn't go to the range with it religiously and become proficient, she's liable to not hit target...or worse yet hit an innocent bystander.

    We feel for her 1st carry she should get one that feels right, so going to the range does not become a chore. Concealment is secondary to the above criteria.

    I think sig has a new 380 out with good reviews and has the safety you wanted, also the springfield micro in 9mm, that is a bueaty i want one for myself.

    Default Sig P232

    The quest continues....
    I liked the looks, size, and reputed reliability of the Sig P232 but when I handled it I found the grip too big for me. The very similar Walther PPK/S feels better in my hand, is an incredibly accurate gun, but that gun has a heck of a recoil! The PPK is definitely not something that I'd want to practice with regularly....

    The P238 felt better--grip-wise--but at the time I wasn't comfortable enough around guns to get a SA type. Now, after 3 x 9mm compacts, I would be just fine with an SA gun...in fact, the Springfield EMP is looking pretty attractive these days :)

    Best of luck in finding a gun that fits!

    Actually she is looking at the Ruger SR9c. She will be trying this out at the range next trip.

    That is a outstanding firearm! My wife just picked that out as her first carry firearm. I got her a Bersa 380 and she hated it! So I sold it and let her pick the firearm this time.

    Her only complant is that the slide is a little stiff(it's not fully broken in yet). But from what I have read once it's broken in it's not so bad.

    My SR9c is one of the most accurate firearms that I have. However I also own an LC9 that I carry to church and anywhere I go that I don't want to take the time to holster up. I just stick it in my pocket.

    I am a big Ruger fan.
