What are some good handguns for folks with very short fingers?

I'm afraid if she gets the CZ she wouldn't be able to find it as it would be in my pocket! LOL
That's a very real hazard! We teach the ladies that firearms are like shoes. You need one for every outfit! And of course you need to have your standby that you know intimately and can operate in a crisis.

Thanks to all of you for the good advice. I just wish we could find most of those guns in stock when we go to the shops. The lack of guns is getting to be as bad as the ammo shortage nowadays. :-(

I'l post and update (with pics) to this thread when she gets the one she likes best.

As you can tell from the responses in this post, plenty of members offering up solid options. I would think some in this tread, have a personal example of said guns.

There is a “Want To Try” section here on the forum (not very active sadly) where you can request to try out a gun that you are interested in. You could post up there or maybe start a new thread with a list of guns you (your wife) would like to try out before buying. I’m sure plenty of the members here would oblige you. ;)

Good luck in your search! :)

As to small frames, Llama and Star used to make 3/4 scale 1911s in 22/32/380. Too bad they are now gone. How about a Colt 1908 .380? Originals can be found for about 5 bills. Not mint, mind you, but perfectly acceptable relaibility-wise. There are some police surplus Star BM 9s for sale. As I recall, they were on a rather small frame. AMT BAckup .380? Have you checked the Mossberg Mc1c? Single stack über compact carry gun.

In my experience the Sig P365 and the slightly larger P365XL seem to be the most 'shootable' micro pistol for the most numbers of people. Use the 12-round magazine in the 365 and then the grip really seems to fit a larger number of hands.
