I need something for my wife to keep in her night stand by the bed. Hopefully she will never have to shoot this pistol except a couple of times at the range to familiarize herself with it. She has a carry pistol she loves already and shoots quite a bit. She wants a 9mm thats not huge but still holds a few rounds. I dont want to spend a lot on this particular gun but I do want something simple and RELIABLE. No wheel guns as she says they feel weird and she doesn't shoot them well.

M&P 9mm would hands down be my choice.

if she wants something small she'll like the Ruger LC9S 9mm

Any reliable 9mm that she's comfortable shooting. My wife hates the XDS, Glock 26 and 19, XD service.....Pretty much every handgun we tried until I traded for a Kahr PM9. I don't care for it. She loves that gun and she can use it effectively, so that's what stays with her. Yours might be different.

Exactly the same with my wife, she prefers a single stack magazine. We must have tried out 6 or 7 different 9mm before she shot the Kahr.

Go shoot a Walther CCP at a range. You will be sold.

There's something wrong with your thinking: Why should she only shoot it a few times? She should be pouring lead out of it.

That being said, get her a 1911. If 10 rounds aren't enough, get her a RIA or Para double stack.

Take her to a store and let her try several differnt pistols. You might be surprised. We sell a bunch of Ruger SR9C's to women because they like the grips better than Glock, Smith, etc. But you never know. My daughter picked a Stoeger Cougar, not based on price, but because of how it felt in her hand. She does have unusually large hands for a women. The biggest mistake you can make is picking the firearm for her.
