New shooter gun recomendations

1671 Views 20 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  Brutus
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.

How can she really know what she want if she's never shot a handgun before? 1st thing to do would be to call cliff cargill take his course than she will have a better understanding of what she needs.
Best advice...ever.
I agree
My wife has shot about 10 different guns in the last 3 or 4 months trying to figure which one she liked best. .22, .380, 9mm and .45. Of those 4 calibers her favorite is my P-90.
