Take in consideration that because that gun fits you and WOWs you, does not mean it will do the same for her.
I was at my local gun store and was just browsing when I overheard a husband and wife pick out a firearm for her. He had the store teller pull out a Smith and Wesson M&P 40. He put it in his hand and played with it before passing it on to his wife. When he presented it to her, her eyes got big! Not big like she liked it, bug as in the size scared her. She was hesitant in grabbing it and really didn’t seem pleased. Then she asked to see the SIG 365XL. The Husband cuts her off and saids, NO thats just a 9mm and it hard too shoot. He then added, you need a 40 and a gun that has holds more ammo.
With all that said, she put the Smith on the counter and walked out! Lol, the husband stood there and still continued to negotiate the price and purchase of the 40cal.
Just remember, if she wants a gun let HER pick the gun or shoot the gun before purchase. Don’t be the overbearing husband and let ego interfere.
