Welcome to the family. There are a lot of options. I have three. Glock 19, Mossberg 500 12 gauge with 00 buck, and an Ar15 sbr in 300 blackout with a can. If you are dead set on the pistol and rifle using same mags you can get Ar’s that except Glock double stack 9mm mags. So that’s an option as well

I don't know about the EC9, but I have a Ruger SR9 and it shares a common mag with the EC9 and the PCC. And I can tell you the SR9 and the PCC both freaking rock. Whatever you decide, if you don't feel like you know much about firearms definitely seek out all the training you can. And then get your LTC once you're comfortable with your level of knowledge.

Hmm, how about a S&W M&P 9mm 2.0 Compact and a Ruger PC Carbine. Or if you want mag interchangeability, a Glock 19 and PC carbine. Or, the Ruger SR series and Security 9 will give you mag compatibility with the PC Carbine. Or, look at the PC Charger. Sort of a pistol and rifle all in one.

All this talk of interchangeable mags, I can't help myself. Sometimes old school is the best school, as in a revolver and lever rifle, both chambered in .357 magnum. Both available at multiple price points (normally at least). Fun and cheap to shoot means more practice means more effective. It doesn't get more point and shoot than a double action wheelgun.

Shotgun is my preference. With that said if your wife, an inexperienced shooter, is going to be using the firearm, I would start with a 20ga. Easier for her to shoot. Prefer the 12, but, across a room, the culprit will most likely not be able to tell the difference in getting hit with a 12 or 20 ga. My thought is that both will leave a mark. Be Blessed

If I'm shooting the 12 ga. it's not a problem, but if my wife has to defend the homestead, that would be way too much gun. That's why I always recommend the 20 ga. And as said previously by some, the turdbird that needs to be shot inside the house or yard won't be able to tell the difference in gauge!
Even a .410 will work fine in probably 90% of homes.
Edit to add: Buckshot is perfect for inside a house or an average size yard.
