As a firearms instructor, when I teach women to shoot, I start them off at a 22, then move them up 380, 9mm, ETC. Make sure any gun she chooses fits her in hand, and is comfortable. My wife shoots a Springfield XD 40, but she works in law enforcement also, so she can handle the bigger calibers through her training. I actually know women who carry 45 ACP and shoot them as good as I can. I would base your decision on the fit, her recoil tolerance, and abilities when you choose her smoker. With use of force, and your EDC, your responsible for where that bullet goes after it leaves the barrel, so stay within the abilities of the shooter.
