Good to know. I don’t think I’d have a hard time racking the slide. I think I’ve decided on the 1st gen M&P it’s about $120 Cheaper.The EZ slide can be pulled with minimal effort and the magazine has an assist knob to aid in loading. I have a couple of older friends (I love saying that these days) that could not operate a regular slide but have no trouble with the EZ
Then she needs to go to the store and try them all out. Find out which ones fit her hand (comfortable), and she can rack the slide. We all have our likes and dislikes but it boils down to what she can, and will go out and shoot.My wife needs a pistol that's very easy to rack and this may fit the cause!!
