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.

Go to a gun shop, with counter people that you know and trust, that has a really wide selection of guns. Tell her to have fun, you'll meet her back in 30-40 minutes.

When you get back, she'll have found the gun that she likes best. Worry about caliber and such later, for her next gun. :)
