New shooter gun recomendations

A friend of my wife wants to buy a handgun and get a carry permit. She has never fired a handgun in her life. She wants me to take her shooting and she knows she wants a Semi Auto. I was thinking of taking her to Surplus City so she can rent and shoot several different types of handguns. I know they have plenty of Glocks and some 1911's to rent. Dont know about revolvers. She has no shortage of cash so she can pretty much get any gun she wants. She is 5'5 and average build with medium-small hands. Recomendations? Recomendations on what she should do first? I know a gun safety/handling class is a must.

I am going to throw in an oddball here. If she really wants a semi then the Bersa 380 is a great shooter and has mild recoil and about the right size for her... I am a huge revolver fan, but the think I like about my Semi autos is that I know my 5 YO cant rack the slide. They are just a little safter when kids are around than a Revolver in case they get thier hands on it.
