Anybody have any experience with this pistol?  My wife is getting her CCW pretty soon and she is very interested in this gun.  Any comments will be welcome.

Accuracy will be less than perfect, IMO. Of course, your wife may have an entirely different criteria than I do.  >gg<

If it fits her hand & she likes it & she's ok with 9mm recoil, then that's the one she should get. Clearly S&W makes a quality gun.

You’re probably going to have to assemble and disassemble it for her.  They don’t come apart easily!!

The quality of newer S&W’s is quite good.  S&W’s going back to the mid 1990’s and earlier are really hit and miss.

Just a suggestion - she might also want to look at the Sig P239, which is maybe a smidgen larger but, IMHO, is better than the Ladysmith.

Thanks for the feedback!  Next time I take her to the local gun shop I'll have her take a look at the Sig.

The 3913 has an excellent reputation as a concealed carry pistol.  Even people who hate S&W autos, like the 3913.
