Seriously? I guess there is a market of elderly and those who are to weak to keep a good grip.
Does this fall under the of if-you-need-it-you-shouldn't-be-holding-a-gun category?
If I couldn't rack a slide anymore I think I would just go with a double action revolver.
^ have to agree.... if u need this u shouldn't be shooting a hand gun
I dont really think that its legitimate to say that it you need this, then you shouldnt have the means to self defense. I have a grand father who cant rack a slide (due to a hand injury) but handles a pistol just fine. We just rack the slide for him. This may not be the best tool, and it might actually be better to go with a revolver... those are both legit arguments. However, everyone deserves the right to personal defense.
@gunmartblog i think most people are saying if you cant rack the slide on a gun then you need to move over to a revolver or the like. if you cant rack a pistols slide then you can't safely operate it and that puts the operator at risk if they cant clear a malfunction when it happens.
@felixanguis If you have ever tried a Smith & Wesson 640 pro you would find the trigger pull is about the same as a normal to heavy semi auto trigger pull, the same goes for a Ruger SP 101
well looking at the gun (Sig P238) in the photo, there is no need for that racker. hook the rear sight on a edge, and push forward, no need to grip the top of the gun. doing this will take less time than trying to use the device posted. also as others said, a revolver would be a good alternative to those that can't physically rack a semi-auto slide.
@gunmartblog nice blog on the right to self defense. You did a great job explaining your point of view. Really enjoyed it.
^^^^Thanks. I appreciate the kind words.
