I wasnt offended. And yes, we will always generally be physically weaker because of our size and body types. But, I am not a big girl. Im short and thin, but if I can handle a few hundred rounds of .45ACP, any woman can. It all comes down to technique. We are not talking about a .500 S&W Mag here, we are talking about pistol calibers that number in the four to five hundred ft.lbs range. I am however not saying that she shouldn't start out with a .22. They are great for plinking, and learning the fundamentals.
As I said earlier, technique. Many women will not be able to chamber a round using the same technique as a burly man. Simply grabbing hold of the slide and pulling back just wont work for many women. So you have to look at different techniques. Like the one I mentioned. Instead of using the strength of one hand, use both. Push while you pull.
And also, as I said earlier. The smaller the gun, the stronger the recoil spring. If you have a subcompact in .45 you are going to likely find it more difficult to work cause the recoil spring is heartier than a larger gun in the same caliber because of the reduced weight of the slide.
