Re: 1911 style pistol for wife?
The 1911 platform is as "safe" as any firearm out there and some with experience would say "safer" due to the features but I'm not going to get into that argument as it's been hashed out before but to recommend a striker fired pistol over one that has redundant safety features is almost comical, almost, if it weren't such a serious question.
Your wife should get trained, then get armed. The 1911 platform is as easily manipulated as any WITH PROPER TRAINING. Invest in her training (Gunsite is the best for your money) and education and let her shop alone...When she gets to Gunsite have her speak to Il Ling about hows all the boys know what their wives want...
While I know you are trying to help her and I am certain you have the best intentions...you are down the wrong road from that first sentence. This is too important a decision for anyone to make but her.
Save your money, send her to Gunsite. THEN she'll buy her own firearm.
