This woman's video is very helpful in selecting a first handgun. I will be moving to a semi auto this summer (can't wait) and found this video to be most helpful for me.
Like that one ,too. Might be worth keeping a ungoing list of sites like this and posting them up at one time. Update as needed.I found this womens article interesting. As I continue my daily research as to which semi auto to own this summer, I find myself running into lots of really good advice written by other Women. Here is one I liked.
Selecting Your First Gun is Like Selecting a Purse « Women of Caliber
The keltec pf9 is small. light, and a 9mm but it's not something I'd recommend a women to carry. IMO a .38 spl caliber revolver would be better suited for a number of reasons.If you're gonna carry it a lot make sure it's small and light with a grip that fits your hand. .380 or 9mm would be my advice for the caliber.
