My Spouse has small hands. A friend showed me the technique shown in the article. She still had trouble with most of my 'tools'. She was quite comfortable with

I have one, it's the Beretta Model 21 Bobcat.  They also make a .25 and a .32 tilt-up.  Taurus I believe also makes a tilt up...if you can't rack, you tilt up the barrel, load a cartridge and your G2G.

Either, as the owner wishes...

You know, I was just checking our firearms review board - so I will review the Beretta Bobcat...with photos....(give me a day or two)...
