In the video below, the SIG SAUER gun guru shows us five — count ’em five — ways to rack your handgun slide. I was always taught to use the hand-over-the-slide slingshot method; gross motor skills being your best bet during an adrenaline dump. I call it the combat rack, which makes it sound . . .
vaguely condescending towards our woman in uniform. And will continue to do so because “power stroke” is a bit too onanistic for my tastes.
Jon Wayne Taylor switched from power stroking to depressing the slide stop to reflect his mental state when Tales of Arabian Nights kicks his ass. I mean, for the sake of speed.
What racking method to you use and why?
