Old man, No tact...
Remember, there will likely be less perceived recoil from a larger/heavier handgun.I actually thought that she would like the smaller guns, but it turns out that she has big hands and needs something a little bigger. We tried a .38 hammerless revolver but it had to much pop, and the regular sized one was just to big. She handled the 9mm's well, but wants to try a .380 (there is a dif between .380 and .38 right?)
.380 is much shorter than a .38. Most of the time (I personally can't say ALWAYS) .380's are fed to semi-autos, and .38's are fed to revolvers.
