I built an AR with a NFA lower and a PSA light weight middy upper that my gf loves. I put a Ranier Arms compensator on it to completely kill all recoil (but make it less useful for HD). I waited for sales and built it super cheap ($600 for everything) but with the craziness now I don't think I could do it again.
She also loves my Ruger .44 Carbines and is a wicked good shot with them. They don't make those anymore but they can be found used for $350 - $400if you look around a little bit. Here in Virginia where you can't hunt much with .223/5.56 the .44 carbine would probably be a bit more functional.
