Response to Mister Ed (Original post)

5. For me (a small female), it's the one-handed operation problem.

 

While, thankfully, no self-defense situation is particularly probably, if one does happen, for soemone like me (small female), there's a fair chance it might include the attacker trying to get their hands on me. I'm not strong or skilled enough to remotely count on getting both hands free to rack the slide.

Fortunately, both of my usual carry guns, regardless of which I pick, have reliable drop safety provisions and I shoot a lot (so operation of the safeties is completely second nature).
