My wife went along on my range trip yesterday to shoot her Ez. This idea seems to be a bust. She can operate it OK but what little recoil it has is too much for her wrist. Five shots and she quit and that was wearing compression gloves and an elastic wrist brace. Said it really hurt. I understand about the wrist pain. Mine isn't in great shape either but as long as I leave the snappy recoilers alone I'm OK. It appears it's 22 LR for her or nothing. No matter, I can shoot the little thing and am actually pretty accurate with it. On a side note I've decided 380 brass has magical abilities. I haven't made up my mind but it can either grow feet instantly when touching the ground and run off or turn in 9mm. I haven't made up my mind which it is. I think I need a helper holding a bug net beside my 380 to catch the brass to keep from losing some of it. This happens every single time I shoot a 380 but not with other calibers.
