Too Fugly For Free.
Because it is the reference to explain why it is NOT working.Some people … and I thought I was old and grumpy.
You narrow your search down to 5 pistols, post it, and then argue if anyone expresses an opinion over any of them.
If you can’t tolerate an 11 pound slide weight, why even put it on your list?
Good luck to you.
As I explained in my posts it is pistols like my Shield 9mm & 45acp that ARE the problem. On bad days for me and almost all days for my sister and brother-in-law a Shield is simply near impossible to rack.
And I'm certainly not arguing with you, or anyone one else for that matter, but I am also not going to suggest that a 22lr is not a valid self defense option for many people. In addition I have tried to point out why the Ruger LCP II 22lr Lite Rack is on the list rather than my H&R 923 or Walther PPK/s or Beretta Bobcat or Taurus PT22Poly.
I can get my sister to learn to shoot and manage and maintain the LCP II 22lr but she will not do that with the H&R 923 or Walther PPK/s or Beretta Bobcat or Taurus PT22Poly. She tried them and simply was unable to rack the slides on any of the pistols or pull the trigger in DA on the H&R or reliably **** the hammer. And it was too heavy and too ugly. She is also extemely noise and recoil adverse.
