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.

I just got to try out the new Springfield EMP 9mm 1911 sub-compact. Great little gun, and I think it would be a fairly easy gun for your wife to operate as far as the slide being easier to rack.
