    Default Easy to cock?

    My wife has expressed interest in carrying, so I'd like to get her a new gun. Trouble is she has tendinitis and so a lot of guns are too hard for her to cock. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions that might help us out?

    Thanks!

    What are you looking to get her? Revolver or semi automatic?

    I can't speak much as to a comparison of different guns with regards to this, but I can offer a quick tip for semi-autos. Rather than holding the gun and pulling the slide, she should hold the slide and push the gun. I've seen several little old ladies try this technique with amazement... It really works!

    Get a revolver. No "cocking" involved.

    yea i was going to suggest perhaps a revolver too
    i also like the idea of pushing the gun holding the slide i'm going to try that myself as i find my gun hard to cock now why didn't i think of that? i guess i really never had enough practice with it which is something i'm going to need to do before i start carrying it for sure
    stay safe

    I echo what the other two guys said about holding the slide and pushing gun. My mother in law can chamber all of my pistols now and she has severe tendinitis.

    S&W 642... simplicity... compact, lightweight, easy trigger pull, goes bang every time, nothing to think about.

    Get her a Glock -- you do the checking and she just pull the trigger and it goes bang! everytime.

    My wife had a hard times with the slide until she tried overhand a few times. Now It's a piece of cake for her. She doesn't have tendonitis but she doesn't have a lot of hand strength... just a thought.

    10 Posts into this and no one is reccomending you let the wife pick out her own gun? You're slippin' folks
