Took Mom to the range (Wades) for the first time on Saturday. Only got about 5 shots down range from her (combining panic attacks and firearms is a chancy thing, and pushing is *bad*)...but we rapidly discovered that DA revolvers were not her thing.
Arthritis in the hands, combined with a lack of confidence, defeated attempts at comfortable use of both double and single action fire out of the revolvers.
A quick switch to a Ruger MK III out of the rental counter was a huge help.
Now, the other issue Mom had - being startled by the loud gunfire of a larger caliber pistols in adjacent lanes at a busy range on a Saturday morning - I'm less certain of how to resolve.
Will look into the SPAA range and the range at West Coast Armory...see what else is out there..
