Think you can’t rack that slide? Try this.
Lots of new shooters, especially women, limit their options for handguns because they think they can’t rack the slide. This essential pistol function is easy and safe with the technique shown here, which simply add the laws of physics to your natural core strength.
Hand and strength is not really necessary when racking this way. I’ve seen people with a variety of hand disabilities, some quite severe, use this technique to master the gun they really wanted, not the one they thought their condition forced them to choose.
An added advantage of this method is that it’s always available when stress or cold has reduced dexterity in the fingers. That’s a real survival skill!
Check out this video and share it with anyone you know who thinks slide-racking is too hard for them.
