This is a tuffy: For anyone with weak arms, arthritic hands, and little experience, what are the best guns for personal protection in the home? (by model name). It seems that if a gun has a light trigger, it's a bear to rack and load, leading to misfeeds and short-racking. If it's easy to rack, it's too heavy to hold. If it's light enough to hold, the heavy trigger jumps it off-target. It seems you can't have a gun with all three nice features for the home, in shotgun or handgun, at the same time. Any suggestions? Please also consider those semi-autos which offer a choice of lighter spring change-outs by a gunsmith.
