We have a .357 GP-100 w/4" barrel for home defense. Took my better half for her quarterly familiarization. She is NOT a gun person, and I give her great credit because she does appreciate the need for competence with a gun in the house. I ask her to load and engage a target twice; for a total of 12 rounds. I consider it a successful outing for her to hit 6 anywhere on an NRA standard target at 5 yds. I am still convinced that a revolver is the right choice for a "woken up out of a sound sleep @ 3am" gun for someone who is not accustomed to handling a weapon. During her shooting session, it looked to me like the D/A trigger pull is preventing her from pulling the trigger hard enough to strike the primer properly. She can hit w/single action, but I don't think that would cut it in an emergency. Would a different gun make that much of a difference, or is there a specific training technique that would provide benefit?
