She has attened, at my suggestion an NRA defensive course. At the course, she had opportunity to shoot their 9MM semi's. She's fired my 380. .38 Mdl 10 and .38 Mdl 85. She's of small frame and found it difficult if not impossible to pull back the slide on the .380 & the 9MM's.
Sounds like an Instruction issue ...... Pax's site has a page on how it's done, right and wrong:
The NRA signed off on somebody to teach a defensive pistol course and this person can't teach basic manipulations? (Or won't, same thing) ...... that does not speak well of the NRA.
