    9mm On Small Frame

    Consider a STI LS9. STI are excellent firearms. The quality & workmanship of the LS9 will give you a high confidence CCW weapon. The frame is only 3/4 of an inch wide, weighs 28 ounces and holds 7+1.

    I own one and it is very accurate and for a reason that is hard to explain it is very ergonomic. You can take a look at http://www.stiguns.com/ .

    Good luck on your search.

    Compared to a well-equipped horse, I am female. Compared to a 6'4" 280-pound hulk, I am petite. And I'm Asian either way you look at it.

    Walther P99c 9mm
    Springfield XD-9/40 in 3" subcompact
    Springfield EMP
    Glock 26/27
    Kahr PM9
    H&K P2000SK

    The PPKs have had issues since they were in existence, and I would go no lower than a 9mm. In a small, polymer-framed pistol, no higher than .40S&W. I have personal experience with the P99c in .40S&W and XD-9 3" sub. The XD-9 was an excellent gun. The P99c was too snappy in .40S&W, but great in 9mm.

    My girlfriend is a 95 pound Thai beautie and she loves shooting my Kahr K9. Her 2'nd favorite is my S&W M&P9c.

    Sig P239. Single stack; DA/SA action; heavy enough to have very little recoil in 9mm; can get a "short trigger" to make it even more friendly for small hands.

    I've got fairly small hands, especially for a guy my size. I just picked up an XD9SC. Fits great!

    Took my wife's friend to the range last weekend because she had never shot a handgun. She is asian and has very small stubby hands. She did fine with my M&P9. I had the medium backstrap on there, but small probably would have been more comfortable. Nice to have that flexibility and have had no issues in about 1000 rounds.

    When my wife gets back we are supposed to shopping for a pistol for her.

    myself and went with CZ model guns they fit my hand much better, had a glock 23 for awhile but didnt fit my hand well was a little thick in the palm

    Greetings.
    Check out the Smith and Wesson 3913, 908(budget model), or the CS9.
    They also have those sizes in larger calibers as well.
    Take care

    here is what my wifes 3913 looks like. She doesn't want to carry so I carry it. single stack 8+1 easily hidden. Low recoil.

    these are larger than the actual gun.

    Something to keep in mind though for the petite person is that generally, the smaller and light weight the gun, the bigger the kick every time it goes bang. So using a smaller gun does require training and strength. A heavier gun (especially all metal) will generally shoot softer.

    Note: Don't construe there is any gun that does NOT require a proper amount of training and maintenance.
    I agree they are small!
