A couple years ago I picked up a broken Kel Tec P11. I fixed the gun and expected to sell it quick for $150. I put a sign in the Home Depot break room. Several people who are working at Home Depot came and looked at the gun. All of them had problems racking the slide on the P11. If people who lift heavy stuff all day have problems racking a slide the problem is more widespread than any of us might imagine.

I think it's true of lots of Guns John!
My issue is only Part time(if my Nerve issues are acting up, usually In the Cold,..) Otherwise I'm still Pretty good,..
My Better Half, However, Must wear 2 Braces and Gloves on a Bad day just to shoot her Buckmark..
I'm used to lubing Arms to make the actions "Smoother" and easier to operate. She's always liked Revolvers More then Autos anyway...but that should not stop her from shooting them and enjoying them when she wants to...
And: she HATES 2 Things!: One,..when Women show up at the Range Dressed "Improperly", and When Companies Market "Down" to Women...(Pink & Purple Grips!)
Don't Know How Yours Feels about those issues...

As for the Kel-Tec's : They Have some "Great" designs, But Like I said to Their Reps "what good is that when we can't get them anywhere, and when we can,..they are "Double to Triple" the MSRP!..plus they removed a few designs from the market place(The RMR-30 for one)..
That Being what it is,..if CDNN really Has PF-9's & P11's in Stock with Different Color combos,..I'd Love a Gray Frame & Dark Slide P11, and a Messload of Std. & Ext. Mags...

I had been Playing around with different Springs on the LC9(#16 is Std.) in #14, #18, & #20...I wound up putting in a replacement #16... If you have more then 2500 Rds. Through your LCP, I'd suggest a new Spring, even if you don't need one....

I think most women feel the same way, but buy them anyway...which is fine if they are serious shooters and not wearing one to look cool....

It's a skill (counting) which takes patience, but once you

get used to it, you find it helps develop patience, gives

you a rough idea of passed time and proportion, also round counts,

loaded mags,etc.

CDNN is like a plague to the market place. They advertise everything at half price when they might have two items in stock. I have gotten to the point that I don't even read CDNN's flyers any more. I can advertise guns at half price when I only have two dented/damaged guns in stock.

I called CDNN to ask about a gun. The salesman said out of stock. I asked him about a couple other guns, they were out of stock. I finally asked him do you have any guns in the same price range in stock? He hung up the phone.

I remember you Posting that a Few Weeks ago. I have never Bought a Gun from them, But Want to Order the GSG-AK-22..
I have never gotten an "Out Of stock" on Mags or accessories until this last time(No M1A/M-14 mags of any Type in Stock)..
They get around it by saying that you need to call for current stock on ANYTHING(catalog Flyers and Shotgun News Ads might not be accurate!) which to me is BS,..but hey thats how they do biz.....If there was anyone else I wouldn't bother with them...
