My wife carries a lot. She carries her Kimber Micro 380 in one of her several purpose made carry purses most of the time. When she walks for exercise in the evenings, she has a carbon fiber/kydex IWB holster for her Kimber. My wife is average build, 5'2" and the IWB holster works very well for her.

The custom carry purses are the best. She can clinch the bag while sliding her hand into the carry pouch and youll be none the wiser vs her head down digging in a purse and not focusing on an attacker. Same scenario as I made in my other post. You cant react to what you cant see.

She will probably need to be set up with a few option, iwb, owb, maybe appendix

Most of the purses are stylish enough for a female of her age. Plus any purse can be engineered to work. Just depends on what and how she carries the purse.

Also which weapon platform ?

I willing to help her if you need it.

My wife does not carry, doesn't really even like guns unless I'm not home... Then her opinion changes quickly. I'm constantly trying to get her to go to the range with no improvement in sight.

Future if I can get her to change. I'm thinking a hammerless revolver would be a solid choice just on ease of use, the extra trigger weight may be a problem.

If she gets handy maybe she would like my sig p238 but idk... I have terrible luck getting her involved.

Revolvers are a bad choice for almost everyone and especially for women due to smaller hands and less grip strength.

10 - 12# trigger pull, ergonomics, low capacity, incredibly slow to reload for most = bad choice.

Any woman can learn to shoot a 9mm M&P Compact or Glock 19 with proper coaching.

The larger semi-auto pistols are easier to control and shoot well.

Also, the higher mag capacity reduces the likelihood of needing to reload, or worse running out of ammo with nothing left and a very angry and violent person on the other side.

I don't disagree that there are much better options than a revolver but a revolver is better than nothing.

If the 3 shots in 3 seconds at 3 yards has any bearing on real life then statistically speaking on average the 5 shots would be enough.

The whole concealed carry idea is just a list of compromises.

3-3-3 is a bare minimum beginning point for preparation, not the end point.

Another drill is at 10 or 15 yards, draw, fire 4, reload, fire 4, in 10 seconds.

There are some who can do that with a revolver, but it takes a lot of time and practice.

Bare minimum is still a lot better than nothing

Most of the women in my family can't operate a slide... So a lot has to do with the operater.

My point being, yes there are better options but a hammerless revolver is the simplest gun to use.

I DISagree on [double-action] revolvers. Their reliability is undeniable, and they are as simple as it gets in that all you have to remember is to pull the trigger. They are very safe.

I prefer a semi-auto like the XD, myself, but I've trained enough to know I won't need to rack the slide and I also appreciate the additional ammo capacity.
