Hi and welcome to gunslot.com
Without knowing your size, stature or temprament, it would be hard to establish what you need or could use.
Smaller women tend to stay with .38/.380 or 9mm. Best possible way is for you to go to a Shooting Range, were they rent handguns and you can try out. The rangemasters are always willing to help out. Fees for rentals run around $8 to $10. Range fees are $5 to $12. Some ranges have free ladies days. But if you have specific questions, someone on here will be able to help...
Enjoy our site and again, please feel free to ask.

I carry a 9mm Glock19, very light, accurate and reliable. It has enough killing power to stop almost anyone, trying to harm you.

to add to sams advice, I would ask your local range prices on thier beginners classes. usually about 125.00 - 150.00. that will include the gun rentals and expert help in choosing the right weapon and how to uses and care for it.

hello Stephanie

You might take a look at the kahr cw9 its slim and easy to carry.

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.- Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

Since we have at least one Brit and one Aussie...maybe even a Kiwi...maybe a different name could be used for fanny as in fanny pack...see, fanny in those countries means something entirely different!!! Anyway, I can't disagree with any of the information you got already. However, the best bet is to do what SamD told you...go shoot under controlled conditions with a professional staff. Many good guns, but if it doesn't feel comfortable in your hand you will have difficulty.
