I've run into some quiet .22 ammo that says to only use in revolvers or single shot rifles. The low velocity stuff may not have enough power to properly cycle a semi auto. Your's may be different but just wanted to make you aware of it.

Yeah, the stuff I'm talking about is made by Aguila it's their Super Colibri Ammunition. It doesn't contain any gunpowder. It only uses the rimfire primer to propel the bullet. Here's the warning that goes with them.

"WARNING: These rounds are powered by the rimfire primer only. They must only be fired in handguns. If fired in rifles, the bullet may remain lodged in the barrel.
Will not cycle the slide of semi-automatic handguns
Aguila packages these as Long Rifle ammunition, but they are in fact slightly shorter than a 22 Long cartridge"

Make sure she can comfortably and confidently rack the slide on any semi auto you consider getting her. My wife has a difficult time with slides. We ended up getting her a S&W Bodyguard 38spl. with the integrated laser. A revolver is a true point shoot tool. Doesn't need a lot of thinking or trying to remember how to use it in a tense situation.

No, I keep things simple. All I have been using is a Tagua leather IWB holster with a single clip. It's not much bigger than the gun itself, has great retention and can be worn just about anywhere. Something similar to this. I've tried the larger double clips with padding and find them too bulky.
