Considering your handle, i'm guessing you'd recommend she move up to a glock. (Only question would be which type.)

I agree! Keep stepping them up over time to see where their limits are...better to shoot more shots accurately with smaller caliber than any misses because being afraid of stout recoil and slower reaction times for each shot.

Handle says it all my friend. Glock 29 is a compact 10mm that will accept a 10 round magazine for conceal carry while allowing your extra magazines you carry to be the 15 rounders. You can also convert this handgun to a 45 ACP with a simple $150 barrel change and the Glock 45 ACP magazines fit the same gun. My wife can handle the recoil fine. Load it with Buffalo Bore ammo and one shot center mass will end the attack. Never liked Glock's until I bought one that was on sale years ago and discovered you can convert many of them to a different caliber with barrel change and new magazines....very reliable! A Glock 19 9 mm would be a better choice for the hero mom with 15 rounds very little recoil less than her 38.

True there O-Drama,
His name suggests he's an aficionado and glock does have so many to choose from.

(I think we both agree that she WILL be moving up, and getting in lots of trigger time at the range.)

Largest caliber with highest magazine round count that she can handle easily and fire safely... is the only answer.

It seems as though real life examples of guns saving -- rather than taking -- innocent life go largely unreported (or flat-out ignored) in the mainstream media. Therefore, I have decided to post the following must-read story in its entirety (via Cameron Gray):

A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.

The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe...
