The biggest you can control.

I like the pie plate test. If you can draw from concealment and put 2 shots on a pie plate in 3 seconds at 7 yards. If you can not you are shooting the wrong gun.

The M&P Shield is a good small firearm for small hands. Have her go to a firearms dealer and touch and feel the handguns.

My Chick carries a LCP 2. She started with the LCP. I think it's a great little Stinger, super small, easy to operate, and easy to be on target. My Old Lady is a Surgeon with hers.

My Mother on the other hand, has always carried a J Frame snub nosed .38. Can't argue the reliability of a Revolver.

Were are you located? If not California go and look at the Glock 43x.

S&W Airweight 38, you can use p-loads, no lock, just squeeze the trigger. perfect for most anyone. FBI standard issue as a backup.

What kind of trigger pull does it have? I had a Taurus in .45 years ago and hated the long trigger pull

I believe the new Taurus pistols have the Glock style DA/SA trigger now. I have a very early S/N Taurus Millennium in .45 that is DAO, very long very heavy trigger. But I liked that in a EDC gun.

Glock fan here. I have the 42, 43, 26, 19, and 19c. 26 and 43 are my go-to EDC choices, the 42/43 conceal very well under any clothing, even boardshorts and a t-shirt in the summer. I prefer the way the 43 shoots over the 42, the 9mm seems to have a slightly smaller kick- seems crazy, and maybe it’s all in my head.

If I’m wearing jeans or heavier shorts my favorite is the 26. The double stack makes it a bit wider- the extra weight is a bit noticeable but not bad, especially with a decent belt on.

I actually prefer shooting the 26 over the 43 (and my 19) and shoot better with it.

I carry the 26 in a hard sided IWB holster compared to a soft sided IWB I use with the 42/43.

During road trips I keep the 26 in the truck and the 43 IWB, to keep as a BUG, allowing me to start with the 26 and switch it up if needed.

My wife has shot all 3 and prefers the 42/43.

Once you go through all the suggestions and make your purchase, then do the most important thing. Send your daughter to a training class. Hell, join her as it's fun and you'll learn a bit. I suggest Front Sight outside of Vegas. My fiance' and I train there at least a few times a year. DM me if you want to know more.

Agree, She plans on attending a training class after purchase, still looking and will schedule after purchase. I did train both kids gun safety and how to shot and handle firearms at an early age as my Dad taught me, But formal class is defenitly good practice, Thanks Keith

Just picked up a sig p238 HD .380. Pretty bad ass little gun. I still carry a commander size 1911 the majority of the time but it’s definitely on the big side for concealed carry for most but I’m a tall guy so it’s not bad for me.
