midlifewoops:  I really like my Smith & Wesson .38 special revolver. Semi-autos freak me out because of hot flying brass. I have to say, my revolver is a bit small for my hands (I have really long fingers and when I fire the gun my finger nail nicks my thumb). But over all, it’s the gun I’m most comfortable with.

gingerkitten:  I wanted the 38 special so bad initially! I went with the sig because I got a killer deal on it, but the SW is still on my wish list!

P Walther 380… I’m not really happy with it, and plan to get a Glock

I have tiny hands and a Sig Sauer P238.  I’ve found some other pocket pistols to be kind of snappy.  But the P238 is just so smooth.

The best advice I can give is go to a range where they offer rentals and try out a few! That’s how I found mine, a .40 HK P30. Love the way it felt in my hands and my grouping was the best out of all. It’s not small so no help to you there specifically, but it works for me as my primary. I do have my eye on a Springfield XDM compact also in .40. 

I belong to a women’s shooting league and our facilitator (who is also an instructor) really likes the Glock 42 (.380) for the ladies with small hands who prefer semi-autos.

I don’t carry yet, (I take my conclead carry class in a few weeks), but I have an M&P Sheild (S&W) 9mm that my sweet fiance gave me. I LOVE IT. It’s smaller and fits my hands well. I also have Talon Grips (in pink) that are awesome, they really help my small hands with gripping. The only problem I have had with it is pulling the slide all the way back when taking the gun apart, but that’s just because my hands are super smooth and they keep slipping off! Great gun, I can’t wait to carry it!

midlifewoops:  Please excuse me for asking 🙂 I am from Australia and it is not common to carry handguns at all, can I ask the reasons you ladies carry them? Is it for protection, to go to the range or anything else? Please elaborate, very interested to find out!!
