My Take Aways

As you know, I go through the data personally, and each year as I go through it all, some things and guns stand out. There are so many gun models to choose from and trust me, I think they are all present in the data. Of course, all of the guns listed above are fabulous, and women clearly like them and buy them, but numerous gun models continually show up in big numbers.

Here are #11 through #15

  •  #11 Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 2.0
  •  #12 HK VP9
  •  #13 Smith & Wesson M&P
  •  #14 Glock 43
  •  #15 Glock 48 & Glock 42 Tie

The Ruger LCP and all of its iterations continue to be very popular. Even though there were no revolvers in the top 15. They were present in the data mind you, such as the S&W 642, S&W Bodyguard, and the Ruger LCR.

Although not individually listed here, it should be noted that Taurus has become quite a popular choice. Its new G series, released in early 20222 would have placed in the Top 10  if I combined all G models. This Taurus model is definitely one to watch.

Another gun that had a solid showing is the new Walther PDP-F. this gun has been designed with reduced trigger reach, reduced grip circumference, and reduced force necessary to operate the slide for those with smaller hands. Another model to watch.

Nine of the above are 9mm’s. This clearly shows that the majority of women prefer a 9mm.

Man, there are a lot of great guns for women!

    So sad. There are so few of these available in CA!

      Yeah but on the bright side a judge ruled CA gun list is unconstitutional. So I guess we will have to wait till it goes to a higher quote. I to live in this over regulated state, my suggestion at least for me….. it’s time to say goodbye and move to a state where we can actually be adults!

    I’m in excellent company, I own 3 of the guns on the list: Sig 365XL, S&W 9mm EZ and the Walther PDP-F, 4″ model. My two favorites are the Sig and the Walther. They are both so easy to rack, shoot beautifully, recoil is managable and sights are good. The Walther fits my hand a bit better, however I carry the 365 OWB at home. The PDP-F is a recent purchase and I haven’t gotten a holster for it yet. Wish I had a local indoor range so I could get in more range time, but it is what it is. Excellent article.
