I am wondering if we should elect the 605 model and let her get comfortable with the .38 rounds, then when she is ready, move up to the big boy rounds. This would also be her CCW. Any thoughts?
    Sounds like an excellent plan...congratulations...ENJOY!

    I would absolutely recommend the 605 for her to carry. I love both of mine (SS and blue) and they are manageable and concealable. I'd also offer a suggestion. If she's comfortable and competent with the .38, I'd go with a 38+P and give her some extra horsepower without it becoming uncomfortable or uncontrollable like 357 might cause. I've seen that recommended by a number of experienced shooters (I think Mas Ayoob was one of the proponents) of keeping things under control and not using 357. Good luck!

    lots of ladies carry 38s not a bad pistol and the ammos still solid

    it is ALWAYS better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.
    Get a gun and GET TRAINING. Training is the key to making proper and responsible decisions in the use of deadly force and training is the key to expertly defending yourself in an unavoidable lethal encounter.

    Interesting question. I don't use my 605 for CC as it's too heavy for casual pocket carry. But it is a sweet gun to shoot with 38 spls. Now, for a lady, who's probably going to purse carry, where weight is not an issue, it might be just the thing. With 38 spls, the extra weight limits the recoil.

    My wife does NOT like to shoot my 851 (15 ounces), but can and does fire the 605 with 38s. It's a full half-pound heavier and that soaks up the recoil better.
