Rack Your Slide Like a Boss

    Prior to pillaging me for this articles’ title, I will state that this was the actual title for the entry on Beretta’s Blog. According to it, I am not racking my slide like a boss and I would suspect that many other shooters are likewise members of the “support staff.”


    Title aside, the blog post does break down into layman’s terms the body mechanics of racking a slide. My wife (an OT-R) read through and verified that Beretta is probably spot-on from a physio-muscular perspective.

    How do you rack your slide?
