    Need DA/SA small grip 9.

    Back in December, my sweety asked me to leave her a pistol, and we wound up getting her a Ruger SP101. Her carpel has made it hard to shoot. I want her to shoot DA every shot, she has never cocked it.

    Now I'm thinking a small grip frame DA first shot, SA following shot pistol may work. I would like 9mm for recoil, and US made is a huge plus. She is a small gal, so high mass, small frame guns work well. This is a house gun, so size matters less.

    What say you?

    If you want DA/SA, why not just SA all the time, like a Glock-26?
    My wife had trouble racking the slide on a KelTec, but when she switched to a Glock-26 (and with a little coordination instruction) she found the Glock (not U.S. made, I know) quite easy to operate.
    Just wondering...

    Ruger P series? DA 1st shot, SA there after. 15+1 of 9mm. Don't know what it considered small but it fits my hands a lot better than my xd45 does

    S&W 3913, but they are hard to find. In the last two years, I've only seen two for sale locally, and they didn't last long.

    It's DA/SA, 9mm, made in the USA, and the grip is very small. The trigger, even in DA, is much easier to pull than my SP-101. The 3913 has a good reputation for being dependable and easy to carry.

    It is 8+1, but to get higher capacity, it would soon require a double-stack and thus a much thicker grip. Although 8+1 may not seem like a lot compared to some, that is almost double the SP-101's capacity.

    I have one, not for sale, but I'd be willing to let her hold and shoot it to see if she likes it. I'll be passing through KS Tuesday early evening if you all are interested in trying it out.

    +1. Grady's right though, they are hard to find at a decent price.

    I don't know if you could find a S&W 99c in 9mm, but it might do the job for you.
    It is DA/SA, reasonable in size, 9 mm.

    My wife has a Taurus PT111 Millenium Pro in 9 mm and really likes it. I know that there are Taurus haters out there, but we have had no issues with the three that we own. I have the 24/7 Pro C in 45 cal.

    Having smaller hands, myself, I think the Kahr K9 is about the best-fitting, smaller-circumference grip out there. As a single-stack 9mm, it might suit you. It's DAO, but you can get the trigger tuned to be far smoother and lighter than stock. Cylinder & Slide, for example, works on Kahrs and is known for doing exceptional work. Should fit the bill.

    If size doesn't matter look at a Barrett 92fs. DA first SA thereafter. Or you can cock it first time for SA. And it has a thumb safety/de-cocker she can use or not use. I have one on my wife's side of the bed. She LOVES it and shoots it well. Only bad thing for a woman is the size of the grips of the 92fs. Kinda large because of the double stack 15 round mag. Go to a local gun shop and let her fondle one...and others. The kick of the 92fs is not noticeable because of the large frame.

    I would say the H&K P30 or P2000 both have very slim grips.

    As an additional way to rack the slide for someone without a lot of strenght:

    Grip the slide in your week hand as if you are going to rack it
    Lock arm
    Use the strong hand to "push" the gun thus racking the slide

    This method takes less effort since it is easier to push than pull.
