I like my pink, Hello Kitty assault rifle best. It even comes with a hand crocheted shoulder-stock muffler. Yea!

It doesn't conceal well, but, what the hey!

In the military we used the P229 Sig Sauer and when I.can save up for it, I'll buy it again. They have some kick but I was comfortable using it and just the look of it was deterring enough. I'm a woman, by the way. ;)

I enjoy target practice w rifles very much, love it. But, I dislike most pistols.

I limit my personal pistols to single action revolvers - only. They have a built in safety - I.e., it will not fire w/o cocking action. A good brand (e.g., colt) has been drop tested to death....so, you can "trust" it will not fire unless you "want it too". And, it does not have a clip, obviousely - so loaded, it will fire just as well today as it will 10 years from now. And, it is highly, highly unlikely it will ever "jam".

A snub nose is less "bulk" easier to carry, but is is also far less accurate, so not much target practice "enjoyment" value...not to mention "confidence beyond 10 ft" value. I agree w ^^ above concerning practicing at a range. Pistols can be "tricky" when it comes to accurate aim at different distances.

Alison and taffy...all I can say is, OMG, you two! I can see it now, whilst under attack, "okay, big guy, say hello to kitty!". Stylizing w a sense of humor...hmmmm...o-k-a-y.
I like "conventional", and don't like engraving so fantastic one is afraid to shoot it b/c it might get a speck of dirt on it. Boring is fine w me.

Pull out a Pink Gun and you may get to run away while the attacker falls to the ground laughing so hard

Someone mentioned Taurus. This is a brand that I will never own another. We have owned several of varying calibres and styles and over 75% of them had to be sent back to the factory for a production error, or some other fault. The millennium pro .45 I had was cute, fit me perfectly, and was well priced. I would have had better luck hitting what I was aiming at if I threw the thing. From the intense bad reviews and agreement I got from most of the vendors at the last gun show, I know I am not alone. I am a fairly good shot, and was practically raised on a .45 and .44. I know how to handle them. But dang. No one I met could shoot it, or fix it.

Taurus customer service and response time is TOP NOTCH though.

For me, I prefer a semi-automatic. Not only because they carry more rounds, but because they generally have less recoil than a revolver of the same caliber. My Brother carries a Glock model 27 and I carry a Taurus ProCarry 24/7 (mine is an older model of the one in the link, but still the same basic gun). Both are .40 caliber. Personally, I want something with some serious knockdown power so I have to use less rounds to do more damage.

ETA: I guess I had good luck with Taurus. I've sent several thousand rounds through mine over the last few years and the only time I miss is when my aim is off.

I know a lot of people carry .9mm guns and really like them, but a cop friend of mine had a very bad experience that made me question the power of the .9mm. He had a woman try to run him down in a parking lot. He fired 6 rounds at the windshield of the car before a single bullet penetrated to strike the woman...6 rounds! For that exact reason, I won't carry the smaller caliber guns. I like my .40 and likely won't ever go smaller. I feel comforted by the idea that a hollow point round from my gun will leave a fist sized exit wound or bigger. Bigger wound = more bleeding = less time and strength they have to continue trying to attack you.

Oh, and you might think that a bigger caliber gun would be too big for an average sized woman. I am 5'5 and weigh about 130 lbs and my gun fits me perfectly. Granted, the one that I have is a little too big for easy concealment, but that's the price I pay to have 12-15 rounds at my disposal in a single clip. 30 rounds if I carry a spare.

Anyway, get in touch with your local chapter of the NRA. They can direct you to good firearms instructors. If they can't help you, talk to your local law enforcement. There may be a deputy/officer who can teach you the things you need to know. One thing that I believe everyone who carries a gun should study is weapons retention. Basically, that teaches you how to keep someone from taking your gun away from you.

I ususally shoot my Glock 19, but I shot one of my dads 1911, not sure what manufacturer, and the gun got the name "Sweetness".

I love my glock, but the trigger is different from a lot of guns. It doesn't have the "spongy" trigger like the Smith and Wesson M&P.
