Actually, a Seal Team would be the best protection money can buy but I do like the idea of a hallway cleaner...
it's difficult to get a small framed woman to feel good about brandishing a pistol gripped shotgun.
I've owned a PPK for about 25 years and it's been a very nice gun. I bought the Manurhin version as opposed to Walther and have no complaints, it was less expensive then the Walther too. Interarms and Smith & Wesson make it in the US I believe. Light, thin and easy to fire, nice carry gun for male or female.

I took my wife to several gun shows and had her get a hold of many American made handguns to see how they feel. Going back and forth from table to table until she found the right fit. She chose the Ruger LC9 over a Kahr MC9 after the sales lady showed her the clip with the pinky rest. She didn't know she was buying it until I told the lady she would take that one. Filled out the paper work, paid for it & carried it out all on her own. The price was 4 bills but they knocked off 10% when she paid up.
Weapon lights are good but will never be mandatory for obvious reasons. I have a light which I have removed from a Ruger SR9C because it fouled up the balance and makes it not possible to holster. I have tactical lights that outperform weapon based lights and can effectively use the light in conjunction with the weapon. You are advocating keeping a Glock in battery for a person who may not have a good comfort level with Glock weapons and I don't necessarily think that's a good idea.
What obvious reasons? They make holsters which accommodate pistols with lights. Frames, well Glock messed up the .40's but we have yet to have an issue with our 120+ Glocks with lights (.45's and .357 Sig).
I am advocating the Glock and a light for one purpose, it is the most idiot proof pistol out there. It just works and if new to shooting, you don't know any better about the grip and functions of the pistol.
The light... anything someone says disputing putting a light on the pistol is making excuses. For someone who likely isn't going to train with the pistol or clear houses everyday, the light needs to be on the pistol. Put that person in a stressful situation with a hand held TAC light removing the free use of that hand, and things will be clumsy.
First of all, not everyone likes a light and not everyone likes a Glock. If you choose to carry one for your duty weapon thats great but not everyone is involved in clearing houses. I don't care for Glocks as the mag release bites my strong hand. I'm left handed and prefer a different grip shape with a mag release in a different position. I shoot HK pistols, currently the USP 40 and the HK45. I also like a physical safety. I understand the Glock safety trigger but do not like carrying a weapon in battery without a safety.
It's nothing more than personal choice.
