You eliminate the problem totally with a revolver. Each person needs to decide if the tradeoff of reduced round capacity and slightly more problem of concealment is worth the elimination for the need to rack the slide. There is a reason that the j-frame revolver is the most popular, or at least one of the most popular handguns for concealed carry.
For exactly this reason, I bought a revolver so my wife would have a weapon to use for home security
