Default Opinion needed

I have a Taurus.380. Due to a disability I'm very weak in my arms and wrist. Very difficult to slide the slide. Are there any pistols with slide that is lighter. I got a 38 revolver. Bulky to conceal carry. thanks

Maybe the best thing to do is go to a gun show or large gun shop and try several models. My beretta 380 is easy compared to my 1911

My mother has arthritis really bad in her wrist. This is what she carries. It's not sexy, but there is no slide issue.

Thanks john. This looks like a good alternative for me. Wish they had a little larger cal but with 9 rds I think it's ok. Thank you very much.

My wife has a SigSAuer p238 and it is awesome. About the easiest slide to work I have ever tried. It is a .380 and modeled after the 1911 so you carry it cocked and locked. They make a 9mm P938 that is a little bigger but I have never put my hands on it. I would suggest at least handle one in person. Some people don't like the 1911 platform for concealed carry.
