Without exception, the most common reason given for not carrying a gun for self defense or protection is, “I’m not sure my hands are strong enough to pull that ‘thingy’ back.”
Even those with small, weak or injured hands, can rack the slide by learning proper technique, and a little practice.
Racking the Slide on a Pistol is Easy When You know How
Of course, the first step is mental. Do not mistake indecision for a lack of skill. Once you have determined what you will do in a given situation, next work hard at developing the skill necessary to save your life and/or that of your family and home.
Practice builds confidence. With confidence, your mind isn’t tied up with trying to remember technique. You will no longer freeze with indecision or lack of knowledge. In an emergency situation finely honed skills along with mental resolve may very well save your life!
