Expect some of that "single-handed is fine" could be revolvers vs. semis?

Lots o' folks, esp. girls, don't have the single-wrist strength to hold the semi still enough to fully use the sling-back of the slide... I have to be real conscious of it towards the end of my range sessions, my hands get tired, and I have to pay attention...

El, go ahead and say it: "some of us old guys" suffer from weak wrists and less grip strength than when we was 20yr old. I know I do.

I dunno. I used to play pro-level tennis, so still have a fairly strong right wrist from thousands of hours of 'locking' it in position. I never paid much attention to the differences between revolvers and semis. I do have a tendency to fire DA revolvers SA though.
