Find a place to shoot one first. Try it out and make sure you can be accurate and consistent with it.
Small guns are some of the hardest to shoot. Mass really helps control recoil. Snubnose revolvers can take quite a bit of arm strength to shoot consistently.
I would suggest looking at some of the new single stack compact 9mm pistols as well. S&W Shield, Glock 43 or Springfield XDS.
I have a S&W shield and can shoot it easily. I have a bad left hand and can still rack the slide without any problems.
