I corrected some of my grip problems with videos on youtube; youtube won't smack you over the head like a redneck relative will.

BTW, as you may be aware, Billy the Kid was known for slipping cuffs due to his large wrists and small hands.
Strength is of no prob, the scales on the slide bites into my palm and it hurts thus making me not want to pull back all the way to press down the release button for the slide to move forward.

Bit confused. Is racking the slide a problem, or hitting the slide stop an issue?

None, just asking to see if using football gloves is decent for use with hand guns because the scales on the slide hurts my skin when i rack the slide back and press on the slide stop down so that the slide can go back to its normal position. It just hurts my palm.

Your not the only "Weird" one, trust me. I wear football gloves or tactile work gloves for long range sessions, and my wife must wear a glove and brace to shoot anything heavier then a 22 or 38 wadcutters. And as I recall, all the range ladies working at the big shooting ranges in Vegas wear em as well.

You can also lightly buff the slide serrations down a little to help with racking the slide. A thin type golf glove is also gives excellent grip while maintaining dexterity and protection for petite hands.
