    My wife is wanting to get her CCW this year. I currently do not have her a gun just for her but its coming in the near future. Im not sure what to get her. I want to get her something that is rather small and has external saftey on it due to the fact that it will probably be in her purse alot. I have really been considering the ruger lc9. and it seems to have some pretty good reviews. I dont want to get her anything smaller than a 9mm. she originally wanted a g19 (with pink lettering.....go figure lol:upeyes:) but i figured that would be to big and possible dangerous while carrying in a purse unless in some type of holster. so if you guys can help me out and let me know what kinda of ccw you wife your some woman you know,what she uses as her CCW would help out a ton. thanks ahead for any feedback
    God Bless

    Chris, best advice I can offer is:

    1. If she's going with purse carry, it is ESSENTIAL that the purse have a designated, quick-access gun compartment.

    2. It almost always works out best if she herself, the intended user, makes the selection.

    Lots of good choices out there; I wish you both the best in making the most suitable such choice.
