I'm sure there will be a tittywop

My wife fired my G29 10mm auto for the first time this past weekend. She didn’t do to bad. She wanted to try the gun out, and who am I to say no?! Anyhow, she isn’t a huge fan of it because of the recoil and the fact that she has a really difficult time racking the slide. Being able to rack the slide is important. What would you guys recommend that would be a nice pistol for her in self defense? I’m thinking G28 or G26. I really don’t want a revolver. Anyone have any experience with the G28? I know I know, make her shoot everything first, but I would like to hear other suggestions first. Seems like I live in gun hell. No one wants to suggest anything, offer up any information, or even sell you something. Makes me realize why all these places are closing up shop.

Has she tried anything other than Glock? I know a lot of women who are very found of 1911s because of their large caliber and slim grip.

I'm a glock person (well, specifically, a Glock 21 man) myself, that is because it fits me and does what I want it to do every single time. Let her expand her horizons... Hell, she might even outshoot you. :) (women are better shooters than men in some scenarios)
As soon as my soon-to-be wife and I get a place together, I'm going to get her a revolver. I tried getting her into automatic pistols, but she just doesn't dig them (other than the .22 P38), but I don't want her shooting a .22. Probably in .38 special.
