    I just got my wife, all 5'4 110 pounds of her, a Sig P229 SAS in 9mm. She likes mine in .40 but said it was a little heavy on recoil, but she likes a 92FS. I felt the larger frame had more to do with the lighter felt recoil than the caliber, but I'm game. Worst case, I get a new 9mm...

    I don't know how you feel about the 92 FS, but my wife loves that gun and has carried it for years. She's carrying it right now, at least until Christmas. I personally don't like the safety but there's a lot of folks who do.

    I have my doubts about the 9mm being much easier than the .40 so we'll see. The e2 (reduced reach) grips were a big sell as it fit her hand better. Tiny woman, tiny hands. If you think like me the Sig might be a good choice.

    Hope that helps...

    Have her try a 9mm and the .380, that should be suffice.

    You have a very well armed wife in my opinion. There are much smaller and lighter pistols for carry but if things go wrong she's in very good company.

    I haven't followed this since the beginning,but watch the 380s if this wasn't brought up earlier.380s tend to have more snap and hit than a 9,partly because the guns are generally small and the majority of them work off the blowback principle.If you want to look at 380s,look at the Sig 239 (I believe),Colt's new or old Mustang,and the like that operate off of the Browning locked breech design.That tames them down quite a bit.

    She does ok...: )

    I just asked her and she says the fit is more important to her than anything else, and that if the gun doesn't fit recoil is a lot more of an issue. Hope that insight helps, LiquidFx.
