    Single Action CC Gun for my wife who has beginning arthritis.

    My wife is ready to start training and carrying, but her hands are not the strongest because of arthritis. I'm thinking that a single action that can be carried cocked and locked would be the easiest for her to operate. It also has to be concealable and easily deployed. I intend to get her to a...
