Ill start by saying that I dont have the strongest hands due to previous jobs i've had that has taken its toll on my hands. Also I severely broke my middle finger on my right hand(im right handed) a few years ago. I broke the bone completely in half and the fracture was displaced. The finger isnt quite the same.
Ok on to my point. When I wake up in the morning my right hand is pretty darn stiff and my grip is really weak for atleast 5 minutes or so. My concern is if the situation arises that I need to go to the pistol after being woke up by an intruder will I even be able to hold on to the pistol strong enough to be effective? Based on this would I be better off using a shotgun as the "late night home defense weapon"? I would much prefer to use my pistol.
Anyone else with this issue?
