So my mom asked me to help her find a good pistol for self defense (she likes to take road trips with her dog so she needs something being that she is 51 years old and alone on these trips). I took her to the local gun shop so she could hold some and figure out what felt best in her hand. She really like the S&W M&P9C. It's a 9mm, 12+1. She really likes the weight and feel of it in her hand and the ease of use with it. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this pistol?
