Got this 8 oz auto in 380.  real nice carry gun, small but powerful.

I've got poor hands, that Arthur stuff.  even let them take some bones clean out of both thumbs.  Still work, but weak.

Now, this DB380 has (two sets) a Front and rear cocking serrations on the slide; with bad hands racking the slide is no problem.  I'm now racking my other auto (S&W 39) by grabbing the front portion of the slide.  With bad paws this seems to work for da BEAR.

Anyone else rack like this????



ps I don't shoot autos by holding them sideways.

My 1911 is a little stiff. Not real bad but stiffer than my other autos. 

I put my left hand on top of the slide with my thumb and index finger on the rear serations and my pinky finger and palm sorta on the front serations and my right hand on the grip. then push my hands together. 

That seems easier to me.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.
