My sister in law was asking about a gun one time, and I told her in my opinion that I thought most women should have one as an equalizer in their purse. She said they all seem to feel heavy. My thought for her was to get the Sean Conner gun from the James Bond movies. Ever since I was a kid I liked that hand gun. I believe it is a WB PPK, but I don't know the size (caliber of milimeter). They are quite expensive though.
