Re: Buying a handgun
Mark,

I think with a handgun, before you drop the cash on any purchase, be sure to let her pick it up and hold it. It is kind of like ordering shoes online. It may say medium frame, or "built for smaller hands," but until she actually has a chance to pick it up and see if it fits, it may be the wrong one.

Especially if she wants to concealed carry, it is important that she can do so with her wardrobe styles and body shape etc. Some handguns 'fit" better than others, and iF SHE WANTS TO KEEP IT ON HER CC, then it is really important to factor these into the equation.



If she knows the make and model of what she is comfortable then then get it online through Buds or even gunbroker or auction arms. I have purchased and sold firearms online through them and it was all by the book and I was happy with the transactions. I also worked the gun counter at a major sporting goods place... So I've sold a lot of first sidearms.

As a first handgun, a revolver that handles .357 Mag would give her the stopping power she needs, and she could practice with .38spc in it to get used to shooting it without getting beat up.

Revolvers are easy to start with and have less of the issues that a semi will. Just an idea, you probably have that figured out already.

Best of luck...
