pretty funny, my wife isn't into guns but when she held the shield she told me to make sure to bring her to the range so she can try it.

My wife isn't into guns but enjoys shooting my 9shield also. She has trouble with racking the first round. That is her only complaint. I am considering a M&P9 full size for us to shoot at the range. I would assume the slide on a full size is a bit easier to operate compared to a shield. My only other handgun is a M&P22 and that racks super easy of course.

My wife had issues at first but worked on her two handed push/pull technique and has no problems with it anymore.
