I'd probably go with the Bersa 9.  I've owned an air weight 38 since '81,  It's hammerless and will fit in a shirt pocket, but I couldn't hit a target past 10' very often until I put on the huge hogue rubber grips.  Now I feel comfortable enough to be accurate if I needed to take a 10 yd shot.

I've heard good reviews on the small frame Bersa 9.  One from a cop who had a high score with his testing.  If it's good enough for a cop, it's good enough for me.  The size of the pistol is not that much larger than the S&W airweight 38 and it's good for close range or longer range shots.  Probably the best lower priced 9 out there...based on info from people I've talked to who have shot them and info I've read, not based on personal experience.  I'm thinking seriously about purchasing one.


I agree with the Bersa 9 recommendation.. It shoots like a much bigger gun. I hate compact semi auto's in general, but the bersa is a gun i dont mind burning through a few boxes with at the range. I think the right gun is one she doesnt mind practicing with at the range.

I agree with Smokey. 380s are light and easy.

However if you go the super-subcompact (pocket pistol) route with the .380. She needs to practice because with a gun that small the margin for error in missing at any sort of a distance is much greater.

Not really. I carry one of my Glock's concealed and it's loaded with Hornady's Zombie-Max 9mm.

For those of you that don't know, the Zombie-Max are the EXACT same round as Hornady's Critical Defense and a lot cheaper too.

Haha you carry Zombie bullets.

Yea I have Zombie in .223, .40 and 9mm. I carry Lubalox coated Ranger T's (Talons) in my .40 CZ and my fiancee carries critical defense.

Love the green tip on the zombies
