I wanted to take a moment and put a new product before you guys. I recently had the opportunity to talk to Mike Love, the CEO of Rack-it LLC about their business. My father-in-law had told me about them a few months ago, and Mike was kind enough to spend some time with me on the phone and send a few products for me to check out.
The Rack-it product line allows you to rack the gun with only one hand. Mike designed the product to help people with physical limitations or limited strength rack the slide to load and unload their pistols. The picture above is of their wall mounted version. This is the perfect solution for people who have difficulty getting the slide to retract so they can work the gun. I think this is a perfect answer to a lot of the small guns that I see people having difficulty with (think Ruger LCP). You simply point the muzzle down and push. By using the big muscles and bone structure of your entire arm, it is incredibly easy to work the slide.
The product is made from anodized aluminum to be super tough. The materials are 100% American made, with most everything being done in the great state of Virginia.
There are several colors to choose from and they even have pink for the lady in your life. Rack-it also has a belt clip version to make this a truly all around solution for the person with a CCW need.
I know that they are constantly updating their offerings, with some pretty cool L/E options coming down the line. I see this as a great solution to an all too common problem. Mounted in a laundry room or a garage, it allows you to feel comfortable managing your gun, effectively removing all limitations.
Give the gang over at Rack-it a call and let them get you set up. You won’t find anyone more accommodating and helpful than Mike.
