Are you a woman looking for a gun that best suits you? Or maybe you are looking to buy a gun for your wife, or mother, but you aren’t sure where to start. I cannot tell you which gun would be right to buy, because only the woman herself can determine that. However, I can tell you the top selling guns for women, compiled by data from  The Well Armed Woman holster, from 2015.


Keep in mind, some things that you need to consider when buying a gun include: hand size, controls and ease of operation, location, and recoil sensitivity. Look at as many models of guns as you can before you determine the best one to fit you.

Here is the list of the top 10 most popular guns among women for 2015:


  1. Smith & Wesson Shield (9mm)
  2. Sig Sauer P238 (.380)
  3. Glock 43 (9mm)
  4. Glock 42 (.380)
  5. Springfield XDs (9mm)
  6. Ruger LCP (.380)
  7. Ruger LC9s (9mm)
  8. Smith & Wesson Bodyguard (.380)
  9. Glock 26 (9mm)
  10. Sig Sauer P938 (9mm)

Women are primarily buying semi-automatic handguns with a slight majority of them choosing a 9mm. The other fascinating thing is that 3 of the top 10 guns women are choosing are Glocks, which historically has not been known as a woman’s favorite brand.

I suppose we can say goodbye to the old tales of women needing smaller, dantier guns. Move over boys, we are packing.
