Weapon for limp wrist & weak fingers?
While shooting with my dear daughter, soon to leave for college, I observed that she almost could not fire a lightened-trigger SP-101 snubby or the double-action first shot of the S&W 915 (9mm), and about half of the cases from the autoloader did not eject properly. (They eject fine for me, but my wrist is roughly the size of her leg.)
What would you folks diagnose? And what should be the proper treatment? I suspect a weak trigger finger and limp-wristing. For treatment I'm thinking a lot of SP-101 dry-firing for the finger, but I'm somewhat at a loss for what to do for the wrist. Any suggestions?
Given the symptoms described above, are there any sidearms you would encourage her to evaluate, or any you would recommend against? I am quite well-aware that she should pick her weapon, but those are the two we have handy for her to shoot. Based on her choice I plan on giving her one of them or buying something else for her within a month.
Further info, in case it is of interest: she will be taking the CCW courses and applying for an Idaho concealed carry license when she arrives in town... but as they are only rarely issued to folks under 21, weapon concealability concerns are probably a couple of years premature. She'll be living off-campus, and her roommate says she wants to learn to shoot, too - yay! We have also budgeted for a decent holster and a COM safe for when she's not there, of course.
