Skeeter beat me to it. The solution for many a female in our family has been wad cutters in her 642/638/637, etc. They shoot with them and carry them and feel very confident. They are plenty for self defense too. I cannot figure out why everyone forgets about them. Maybe too old fashioned?

Now I am not a huge kydex lover, but these things are nifty for purse carry:

I would recommend something like that.

One more thing, I don't recommend off body carry, I would rather see a lady carry a 22 magnum NAA revolver on body than a 38 in the purse, but I guess purse carry is better than nothing.

Both my wife and daughter picked out a Smith & Wesson 442 for their CCW revolver. This is the one my Wife confiscated for her use.

I think going to a double action only is a mistake. Most women that I have gone shooting with became very tired of the long trigger pull. I personally think that the model 60 S&W is a great gun for carry and would work for a woman. You may want to have her check out the Ladysmith... It is only 5 shot, but if she needs more then that, then look at a semi-auto 9 in double/single like the XD9 (or other incarnations).

I find that in 38 spc, the recoil on the model 60 is really not bad in standard loads.
