    If you have had this experience then I'll value your opinion much higher than most of the others.
    How about someone who was jumped in an alley by two thugs, and shot one of them and caused the other to lose control of his bowels so badly the Police Car had to be sent off for professional cleaning

    Yeah Glocks were the big thing ten years ago, still pretty big... but the Kel-tec 9mm is quite popular as a very light, small gun with decent firepower, and the Smith and Wesson M&P is what almost all the top pros, I mean people who get into more actual guns-drawn situations than any sane person should, are carrying from the past couple years.
    Yes racking the slide is what i am looking for.
    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.

That's one major thing that needs addressing. And that's one reason why I support registration of weapons, to help track them and make them harder to steal. Not to hinder legal owners, but to hinder criminals.

    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.

    that's moronic. You ignore the 9th and 10th amendments and how can a militia be called up if citizens don't have arms?
