Background check, waiting period, no carrying
No guns at all
That is a great help. There is considerable shooting in this novel. Police detectives FBI and a Terrorist organization as well. Lots for me to learn in the writing. I will definitely look into the Kel-tec 9mm.
The last gun I held was my dads I Colt Gold Cup .45 and that was years ago. I was a teenager at the time and it weighed a ton. I'm very small even now but to try and fire something like that would break my wrist.. So i worry that I have a gun a female could wield properly.

The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

If you go to a gunshop, fill out the form and wait for the background check to be phoned in you are no longer in the "heat of the moment" even if you live a two minute's walk from the gun stor.
and anyone who registers their weapons is a fool since registration is a tool for confiscation.
and yes it does hinder legal owners since it has been used in many places to confiscate guns
Well, the Kel-tec and the Smith and Wesson M&P are both featherweights compared to a Colt Gold Cup 45 in the old all-steel style.
My personal suggestion.... if your female detective is a serious shooter, someone who would say "I've needed one several times before and I KNOW I'll need one again" then give her the compact M&P 9mm. If she carries a gun more for "just in case" but isn't into pro-level shooting, then the Kel-tec 9mm is fine.
