    Not all of us old guys know how "hand jive" goes.

    if you don't know how the "hand jive" goes, you could piece of skateboard tape on top of the slide between the rear sight and the ejection port. that may help give you a better grip also.

    Oh, I've used the same method you mention in post 20 - but the hand jives thing threw me off a bit.

    Arthritis is a B!!!tch! I shot right handed for most of my life…..had to switch to left hand in 2011 because of ARTHRITIS…..Grrrrrrr! AND it has worked out for me…..thank God!
    Have you thought about switching hands??? It's MUCH better than "NOT" shooting!
    Good Luck!!

    I bought one of the gizmos called "The EZ Racker" from Midway I think but could have been Brownells. Dandy little plastic thing. They come in small and large. My biggest problem was at cleaning time. Now I put the little plastic bar in a small vise on my reloading bench and rack away.
