Hi, I've been able to learn a lot and find a carry solution for myself that I'm very happy with. Now my mother has decided to delve in and the main issue is that she has arthritis in her hands and wrist. At one time when she was flaring up she shot one round out of my 9mm and said yeah I can't do it. Other times it's not as bad. I'm not sure what the solution is here. .22 obviously would be good recoil wise but I'm just not sure I trust a .22 for obvious reasons and possible reliability issues. I carry the springfield xds 9mm and I would recommend it to any woman but if she had a flare up i would just worry about the recoil. Any ideas?
