    My wife settled with .380 Ruger mainly because most in the office have one, so there is always Ammo in a fire fight.

    For the house how about one of those cute little semi carbines chambered in 9mm?
    On a rifle like platform recoil should not be that bad.

    money is definitely a factor both for the gun and recurring ammo cost


    I was definitely thinking the same , the glock lower ARs in 9mm are coming down in price

    10oz, tip-up loading, so you don't have to rack the slide. When shooting at someone, rarely does the guy being shot at consider the caliber and I've helped do the posts on more folks shot with a .22 than anything else.

    Around the house:

    Another 22. Inexpensive, and dependable. Very light, fairly short and not front heavy. If her eyes aren't the best, put a red dot on it.

    So...two gun battery, common ammunition, easy to load, negligible recoil. Yep, it's not a loudenblaster magnum, but it WILL get the job done, considering the needs of the person.
