I am a retired Marine. Although I didn't carry the BAR in combat I trained with it for thirty day durning combat training in many live fire exercises. I found it easy to control and keep on target because of its reduced recoil. That is why it was so effective in combat it was conducive to good point fire as well as laying down a good field of fire. Your wife will have no problems shooting a BAR.
