Can she shoot the EC9? If she doesn't like shooting that, I doubt she'll like the LCP. It's a little gun and is great for the pocket, but it's also a snappy little devil to shoot in 380.

I would definitely look for a place to rent and have her try it out before buying it.

Wife shot my LCPii with Hogue grip....her P238 is now in her night stand and she carries the LCPii. My daughter shot my LCPii....she now carries one.

Get her one and put a Hogue grip on it!!!

Wife has shot my EC9S and liked it but to big she says for pocked carry. She had a Steyr S9 that she liked except for being to big and heavy she said. She has a M&P 9mm EZ that is also to heavy she says. She carries it in a fanny pack but doesn't like that setup. Has her heart set on the LCP II. I explained that the LCP would be pretty snappy but she says she wasn't going to use it for a range gun just pocket carry. Also she has shot my RM380 and thinks it isn't to snappy for her.

My wife was mostly new to pistol shooting and she loves hers. It is snappy but I told her that out of the gate. She can shoot good with it too.
I have a EC9S and she likes the LCP2 better.

Well, she's right about that. LCP-sized pistols are the most I can fit in jeans pockets.

You just have to see how she shoots it.

Also maybe try a standard LCP to see if she likes the trigger better, or feels more comfortable with a more traditional DA trigger.

I have an LCP II, a Shield 9mm, 1911s and a Service Six revolver. I carry my LCPII 95% of the time. Yeah, it's not a range pistol and is a bit snappy but for what it is, it is a good, comfortable reliable pistol.

Well she did it. Bought the LCP 2 380 in Muddy Girl Camo. So far she is very satisified with it. A little snappy but she handles it. She likes the way the little thing slips into her jeans pocket and she doesn"t carry anything else in that pocket.

My wife has access to several CCW weapons. She runs them all when we go to the range. She has always carried her S&W 38 Airweight. I do to a fair amount of the time.

I bought the original lcp 2 weeks after they came out, added a pearce +1 mag extension, hogue grip, tandemkross anti walk pin and wollf 13 pound recoil spring, took the snappy recoil out of it. Wife wanted one so bought her one, added the pink hogue grip with crimson trace laser, mag extension, takedown pin, and 12 pound recoil spring, she loves it. However I usually carry my glock 42 more than my lcp, but both do great for ccw pistols if you practice with them.

Added the Hogue grip made for the LCP 2. It cut down on felt recoil a little bit. She likes it even more now. In fact she won't let me borrow it for pocked carry so guess I will have to find a pocket pistol for me now. I have a Remington RM380 but it stays in the console of our Blazer.

My wife insisted on a LCP (gen 2 - not II) as her first pistol based on size alone. She calls my Glock 17 and CZ75 elephant guns I was really skeptical. She did great with it. I got pocket gun envy shortly thereafter and we now own four various LCPs. The Custom remains my favorite and is pretty much my EDC. We can debate calibers and holsters, etc. forever, IMO, the LCP is a great truly everyday carry.

OP she needs to know a pocket holster is required to cover the trigger and to keep lint from getting into the gun. Her pant's pocket should not be used as a pistol holster.

I would echo this, a pocket holster will also help hide the 'bulge'.
Best,
