I’m picking up a TP9SF on Thursday for my wife. Just got her started shooting and found that she likes full size guns. Only problem is that she has a little trouble manipulating the slide. Is there anything I can do to make it easier for her?

It'll loosen up more as it gets worn in, or you can change out the recoil spring to a lighter one.

Make sure she is using the correct technique to rack the slide. Is she pushing with opposing hands and not just pulling back with one hand on the slide.

I agree... Also maybe look into shooters gloves... The right pair can add some grip for her...

If its range only use I don't know if they makem for Canik's yet but you can get charging handles that attach to the back plate and you can pull it with 2 fingers like an AR charging handle.

I dont Canik gives in all model same spare parts in box . But in myh Elite S Combat i have small Plastic case coming with few spare parts and charging handle. This Charging handle may only use with Red Dot attachment base on pistol. For me very useless. I am shooting always with gloves in range. Couple of time i cut my finger realy bad during checking my gun in range. So i start to use only gloves.

But generally i may say Canik has very heavy recoil spring. Even i am use extra effort for sfot charging. I place order from DPM System soft spring for my Canik. I think best option is change Spring.
