    weak or damaged hands? - make racking easy

    Safest way to rack your pistols Handi-Racker

    My Shield is very tight and this little device is just the ticket.

    Brilliant ! I hope they make a bundle.

    Interesting. It puts the off hand fingers pretty close to the muzzle (yeah, I have seen what happens when people shoot their pinkies off) & there isn't time to use it if you need to clear your gun in a self-defense situation. It could come in handy @ the range though.

    I’m not a fan of the product nor the technique it uses to rack the slide. I would never recommend this to anyone. It is poor practice to grasp the slide in front of the ejection port to rack or open the slide. It is a recipe for disaster. It is the Rube Goldberg of how to improperly rack the slide. Title should be changed to “Quickest way to shoot yourself”

    Save your $30 for ammo. I also have a Shield. Yep, it was tight at first, but send several hundred rounds down range and it will loosen up.

    I think a much better investment for you and a real life (thumb) saver at the range is the UpLula loader.

    I work with a guy that shot off the end of his 2nd finger just above the end knuckle. Putting your finger tips near the muzzle end like that is a recipe for serious injury. I would not recommend this product. Hopefully the company making these has a great deal of liability insurance.
    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!

    It works fine with a 1911 Hickock. You should load the first round by hand then the rest with the loader. It is a dream.

    Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more, you should never wish to do less
