I want to try the LCP2. I have the original. With a heavier recoil spring, extended magazine floorplate, and a hogue handall grip it is still quite a bear to shoot. Harder to control than my .40 cal Glock 27. We can debate the caliber and magazine capacity arguments all day and twice on Sunday. One thing we can all agree on is if she isn't comfortable and confident in being able to pick up that gun and point it at someone and pull the trigger, then whatever gun it is doesn't really matter.
