    FNG from Texas

    Just a quick "Hello". Wife and I are just getting our P.I. and CHL's going. We bought a pair of Bulgarian Makarov's. We love them. Great shooters, easy to handle, great CC's. She borrowed a Carry 9 and tried to use it but couldn't work the slide to well. A guy at the range let her try his Makarov and she fell in love with it. I look forward to this forum for info and advice from here on out.

    Welcome from Missouri.

    A technique that works well for those with weak arm strength is to Push on the grip with the weak hand at the same time the strong Pulls on the slide. Using both hands to retract the slide takes 1/2 the amount of work.
