    Not a huge fan of Glocks, but they are very nice weapons.

    What do you think about .380 PPK instead of a 9mm?

    OK, so I'm neither female, petite or Asian, but I don't have large hands...
    How about the Walther P99? I find it to be comfortable than my Ruger.

    Taurus 9mm Millennium Pro -
    1. mine has yet to fail or jam.
    2. really small grip for a double stack 9mm.
    3. If she is Filipina, tell her that all of us Filipinos own a Taurus Millennium 9mm. - or a Glock 23. What's her name? maybe I've seen her at the meetings.

    You sorta read my mind. I have been looking at the Walthers. LOL...I am neither female, petite or Asian either. Though my fiance is. I am thinking ahead of the game here. Ultimately, she will choose for herself.

    Yeah, if you have been to the Springer section of this forum you will find that I am an SA 1911 fan. This was the first weapon that I thought of. You have good taste. This one will also find its way into her hand.

    Try on the Kahr PM9 or the Keltec PF9 for size. They are smaller pocket guns in 9mm that fit small hands real well. Smaller than the typical subcompact.

    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.

    Kahr PM9, CW9 or P9

    All three are easily concealable, especially the PM9

    Requirements:

    9mm
    small hands

    Needs:

    single stack
    no finger grooves on grip - grooves force fingers of small hands to spread
    longer slide - soft shooting, controllable muzzle flip, longer sight radius for accuracy
    DA/SA or SAO - short, light SA trigger
    Avoid DAO - long , heavier trigger pull

    Suggest:

    Kimber Aegis II Custom (best)
    HK P7M8
    Walther P5
    SA EMP

    S&W M&P comes with small, medium and large grip inserts.

    Worth a try.

    They perform quite well.

    Small hands doesn't always mean small gun. You can find Guns such as the HK P30 which has adjustable backstrap and side pannel sizes. Also consider the M&P (compact maybe?).

    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.

    Thanks for all the great feedback! There are obviously alot of opinions based on experience, which is what will be required in order to make any final decisions of course. I look forward to the use of all this information from a practical standpoint. Thanks again to all!

    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.
