I like to think that I am still close to my prime; but I can certainly see how my parents are no longer near their peak. This is very evident with my mother’s arthritic hands. Roughly 10 years ago, she purchased a Ruger LCP (the original) as her every day carry (EDC) gun. Her hand strength was fine for recoil control, slide manipulation and her finger was certainly strong enough to manage the trigger. Over intervening time, those processes have become much more difficult, making her rethink her handgun choice.
One of the most interesting handguns to come along in some time is the Model 69 .44 Magnum. This is a 5-shot .44 Magnum revolver built on the L frame chassis. It features square butt grips and a 4-inch barrel. However, Smith & Wesson has gone one better for personal defense shooters with the Model 69 Combat Magnum.
Revolvers remain an important part of the handgun market. The niche for revolvers is stronger than ever, with the introduction of new revolvers and accessories. Among the most interesting accessories are revolver speedloaders. Many regard them as necessary for personal defense, as much so as keeping a spare magazine for the self-loading handgun.
