Default semi auto for a lady

My wife wants a handgun.

I had my heart set on a S&W Model 60...but she won't have a handgun without a real safety, so I'm trying to find a reliable semi auto that has a safety - not just a trigger safety like the 1911's but something that will decock and render the gun harmless until the mechanism is reversed. Does anyone know of such a creature?

The only thing I'm sure of caliber wise is nothing smaller than .380 - unless yall would recommend 22 magnum or something like that.

Thanks for your help.

Beretta has all those safety features you mentioned. I have a PX4 .40 and I love it! They make a compact version as well and I think they are available in a 9mm. Great guns!

My SW99 Compact .40 (basically a Walther P99) is lightweight, shoots straight, and has a decock mechanism. If she's gonna carry in a purse, though, it's hard to beat something like an airweight hammerless .38 revolver.

I've got a ruger with a de-cocker......its a reliable gun......I think it was under 400 bucks too......p-45 model I think?? Its kinda big to put in a purse, but I'm sure they make a compact with that feature.....

Without ALOT of practice, she will never get the trigger pulled......I agree with pox
