Nothing is so bad, I'm actually content on her having her little 22, however she did ask me if there was something in between the 9mm and her 22, and that's the 380, so iI told her we'll give it a try. I'm just personally hoping she loves it, if she doesn't it's no big deal but I really wanted her to have the most fire power she could handle like I stated before.

I highly doubt she will want another firearm for a long long time after she gets her first one, she gets very attached to things and refuses to let them go lol, so she will have which ever one it is for year's.

No doubt about that.

If she shot a nice 9mm 1911 she'd pick that over any .380 and have the firepower you want her to have.

I can't understand why peope think .380 is a low recoil cartridge or a nice "compromise" size gun. Its a concealment gun's cartridge for a concealment gun.

Where do you guys live and shoot? I'd like to let you both try a .9mm 1911.

Not sure either why people suggest a 380 for home/self defense over a 9mm other than the concealability factor. But even that is not an argument for the 380 anymore given the number of small and concealable 9mms on the market.
Pros of 9mm: Cheap to shoot, extensive variety and amounts of practice and self defense ammo on the market, availability just about everywhere.
Cons: None
Pros of 380: None
I had a S&W Body Guard 380 and although it was very concealable, the trigger was too long and heavy and the price of ammo made me decide to sell it. I can and do buy 9mm(as well as reload it) cheaper than I ever could buy 380 for. Not long ago I bought 9mm Federal HST 124gr $25/box of 50. I paid $20/box of 20 for 380 Critical Defense. If my wife liked the Glock 42, I'd be buying her the Glock 43 because to me it makes the 42 null and void.
Ok, off of the 380 thing. If she wants a 22, get her one. Years ago when I lived in WV, my first carry gun was a Phoenix Arms 22 semi auto with 3" barrel. The 10 round magazines were loaded with Remington Yellow jackets. I shot chipmunks, red squirrels, rabbits, fox, targets etc on a daily basis with that thing. I did not feel the least under gunned with it because I knew I could shoot it very well as well as understanding the limitations of the caliber.

Inbetweens do exist, just that .380s usually ( make that almost always) aren't it .

Revolver-.22WMR from full length bbl. ( And some other , rather obscure things.)

Semiauto - .32acp , from a larger than microsized gun. Under rated in most people's mind. Performance just barely behind .380, with better expansion/ penetration tradeoffs than .380, with significantly less recoil .
