If this was my friend and she was in the same position as your friend is, the wife and I would be taking her gun shopping.
I would make up the difference from what ever money she had and buy her the gun that fits her Hand/body-type.
find out if she can rack the slide, hold the gun properly, work all the controls.
Help her find A CCW class.
Help her find a self defense class.
Help her find someone to help deal with being raped.
