Just bought my wife a Ruger LCR after much consideration. She can't rack the slides easily on my PPS or Solo. In the middle of the night, home alone, half asleep I would not count on her to rack the slide properly and have one of them ready to shoot.
So I decided to buy her the LCR....it can remain loaded and ready for action for years in our bedside table. IF she needed it, she wouldn't have to do anything to it before pointing and shooting at the BG.
