EZ does it! An easy slide

There are a lot of people who may benefit from an easy-to-pull slide on a firearm. I’ve seen a lot of people switch to the .380EZ when their arthritis gets worse or they’re new to shooting and don’t have the hand strength to rack a harder slide.

Who do you know who could benefit from an easier slide? Have you shot the .380 EZ?

That’s the exact sidearm my wife has. She fell in love with it after test firing it at the range. She’s handicapped and does not have a lot of upper body/arm strength, but she can run this one and hit center mass with no problems.

I’ve heard from a lot of people who have limited upper body strength that this is the gun for them! Glad your wife has one she loves, @Fish!

My wife has fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis. She would benefit from the 380 EZ, but, she doesn’t like semiauto pistols. She’s a wheel gunner through and through.

What wheel gun works for her? Others here may like a similar gun if they prefer wheel guns over semi-autos and need a firearm that is easier on the hands.

She likes my GP100, but, it’s not really a concealed carry piece. I haven’t pushed the issue on her buying a gun for her to carry. I took her to a gun show, and, she kept going back to the Ruger LCR. When she gets comfortable with the idea of her carrying a gun, I’d say that will be the one.

Have her look at the shorter barreled SP101’s or even some of the smaller framed .22wrm’s. The .22 mag is the most overlooked and underrated round for self defense to ever hit the market. Loaded with 70gr jhp’s or SP’s it’s penetrating characteristics are fantastic but still with minimal risk of over penetration.

I need to look into this. My wife can shoot my Sig P320 M17 pretty well but she can’t rack the slide. We were thinking about going the revolver route but after reading Kevin’s review, the 380EZ might be a better option. Ultimately the decision would be hers.

I sell through the EZ’s like hot cakes! No gimmicks or funny business, it really is that easy to rack back. I haven’t met anyone yet who couldn’t. Plus, other features, not as small as the bodyguard or ruger lcp, slightly smaller and lighter than a 9shield. There is also a grip safety with this firearm. Comes with and without thumb safety.

I did. Even had her shoot a SP101 in .22 LR. She likes the feel of the LCR more. I might, cough cough, just get both and let her choose. Then claim the other for myself. :grin:

We bought this gun for my wife. She has arthritis in her hands and has problem racking a slide. We took her to check it out and she fell in love with it. So has everyone who has shot it so far! If you have any difficulties with a standard slide, try the 380 EZ!

I tried the EZ 380 n really had a problem with the triple sights? I own a PPQ 22 n I’m dead on with that gun! N the slide is great for my arthritis! But it’s to big to carry.

Welcome @Ruth, everyone has to find the firearm that works. Have you had a chance to shoot some other smaller guns?

Bought an EZ for my wife. She had struggled for years with her old 19 Glock, with the EZ she has NO problems manipulating the weapon, and it shoots like a dream, low recoil and very accurate. This little gun has restored her confidence. Highly recommend.
