Very nice. Maybe you could give me some advice. I'm a woman and looking for a new conceal carry. I have a S&W 357 and love it. The trigger pull is an issue, not at range be in an emergency. I also have a sig p238 another one I love, but in this case the slide is difficult for me. I own a jewelry store and with the economy more people are desperate and I need to be a bit more causous. So, I'm looking for a small conceal with a short easy trigger pull. Heaven forbid I was ever in that situation, but if so it would be most likely more than one person. My accuracy isn't a problem but I need something quick and easy. Not one with a 10lbs trigger pull like my S&W Can anyone please give me some advice on what would be a good choice for me?

My wife tried out a kahr, Springfield xd, sig, and a few other pistols before ultimately deciding on the g26. The stock trigger on the glock I believe is 5.5 lbs (very easy pull ), also easy to change to a 3.5 lbs trigger if you wanted! As for as advice goes, I'd say go to a local range that rents out pistols so you could feel them out yourself. And yes hopefully you never have to be put in that situation, hope this helps.

I'm a petite female and conceal carry a G26 easily and comfortably. Trigger pull of 5.5lbs shouldn't be a concern. Just try to get used to it by shooting it often.

The fact that you admit you have trouble racking the slide on a semi-automatic makes me think you should stick with a revolver. You said you have a S&W .357 but didn't say which model it is but I'm assuming it's a revolver due to your comment on the difficulty you have pulling the trigger, so, yours must be a double action and that's what creates your problem. I have a S&W 686 SSR .357 MAG so I know what you mean.
Recently I've been looking for a gun for my wife and she has some of the same restrictions you do, she's not strong at all.
My suggestion for you is to find a range close to you that offers rentals, try out some of the S&W revolvers such as the "637", 638, and 642.
Good Luck
