Statistically her gun is far more likely to never shoot anyone.
Me and my Family have always been revolver shooters for the simplicity and reliability. They are just so easy to maintain. I belueve it was dutch that suggested the .357. I think that's a great place to start, you can shoot .38 rounds, but when you need a real punch you can switch up to the .357. Ruger has a very good selection.
Of course I say that, but I have been spending all my time with a Springfield XDm 40.
Also, the .223 is a waste. If you are going to get a rifle or an AR, go .308.
