Mleake beat me to the comment. Get her to a good instructor, get good training with several different weapons and let her select her own.
For 25 years I tried to get my wife interested and trained in shooting.
She asked to learn, finally, and I took her to Caswell's in Mesa. I met with the receptionist, clerk. I left to browse the inventory.
She met an instructor who started her off with a basic course. This is a gun, the bullets come out her. Eventually, she completed two other courses and obtained her CCW.
I now have a shooting partner.
