We went out yesterday and bought a new M&P 9c for the wife's EDC. She has just received her LTC and after some range time chose the S&W. Today I told her to carry around the house, practices draw and basic pistol function, unloaded for now. Well she thought that I also meant loading and unloading the mags with ammo but she never loaded the weapon. Anyway her complaint was that it was very difficult and her fingers hurt. In frustration she says maybe we should have bought the revolver it was easier to load. I said your kidding right, let me ask the forum members for any tips on loading mags but I think your going to have to work on finger strength.
