At first I thought you and the others were gods..

Just did a little research and figured out what I was doing wrong. I was pulling the slide instead of pushing with my dominant hand.

Can confirm. Does work..

You Can Rack A Slide. Itís Technique, not Strength.

If I had a dollar for every time I heard, ďI canít rack the slide. Itís too hard,Ē Iíd probably have a condo in the Keys. In fact, when I started shooting, I thought I wasnít able to operate all semi-automatic handguns either. Believe me, ladies; I understand your slide intimidation. However, have no fear! Regardless of what you may think, it is not your strength or lack thereof that enables you to rack a slide properlyóitís learning the correct technique.

Step 5: With as much force as you can muster, PUSH the gun forward with your dominant hand, keeping a firm grip on the top of the slide. You want this motion to be as smooth as possible.

After some practice yesterday, I can now confidently say I can rack the slide of the Glock 19, with no problems.

Funny how something as simple as the push versus pull, made all the difference.

Thanks for the push.

A Glock is a sidearm.

If you encounter an AR with only a sidearm...find cover.
