I've been looking at the Sig P238, Sig P938, Ruger LCR and Ruger LC380. I know lots of women go for the .380 ammo but I really would prefer to go no smaller than 9mm with a smaller gun. Both of the Sig's have longer barrels than the Rugers and both the Sigs and the Rugers have mag extensions. My husband would like me to try the Walther PPS too.
Please keep the input coming as it's been so helpful in my learning!
My vote is for the Sig P938. Here is mine with the 7 round extended magazine. If you decide on this gun, you really need to run about 300-500 rounds of at least 124gr ammo thru it before you carry it. The P938 is a little "snappy", but the extended mag allows you to get a better grip, and should help alleviate much of the recoil.
