I have been in the gun world all my life! I have owned a liqour store where we sold firearms. Also love Fireworks and hold a Federal Liscense to Manufacture Explosives. I have done some effects for the movie industry but probably nothing you have seen.

I have a patent on the Handi-Racker and on a primer propelled pellet gun I call the Prime Gun which I hope to bring next year...

Been a NRA lifetime member for many years, now up to the Benifactor Level

A partner and I have been working on a muzzle brake that is incredible.

I have also been working with a couple other inventers to help them to success>

 Press Releases

  • This is our first appearance at our NRA Annual Meeting. Located at Booth #6967. We are looking forward to helping you for years to come!

    1. Handi-Racker is placed over the slide of a handgun.

    2. The Handi-Racker may be placed on a table or other surface as a user depresses the handgun grip forward. The body of the Handi-Racker retains the slide within the slide channel, allowing the barrel to extend into the barrel channel. Once the slide has moved sufficiently rearward, the user releases pressure on the handgun grip, allowing the recoil spring to drive the slide forward and load a cartridge into the barrel. Then, the Handi-Racker is removed from the slide and the handgun may be fired.

    Two Sizes fit 95% of pistols!

    "The Safest way to Rack Your Pistols"


  • Handi-Racker "The Safest way to Rack Your Pistols"
    Handi-Racker is a patented tool to help manipulate the slide on semi-automatic pistols.
    1. Place over the top of muzzle of a handgun.
    2. Push against a hard surface.
    3. Release and Remove.

  • Handi-Racker was developed for a customer who requested my help. A young man came into my gun shop and was having difficulty operating his pistol. He wanted me to weld or bolt some tabs on the back of the slide of his gun and make a little T handle that he could put in his pocket after he racked the slide. I told him that I didn’t want to weld or modify his gun but to come back in a couple of weeks and I will have an answer for him.

    A couple of weeks later, I handed him the first Handi-Racker. He used it and his face lit up! He reached into his pocket and handed me a $20 bill. I refused his payment and told him that I did it to help him and I was happy to do it.

    A few days later I started to think that several other people may have the same issue. I also realized there were lots of other uses, like Clearing Jams, Loading, Unloading, Disassembly, and more. Several nights of not sleeping went by. I started doing some searches on the internet and nothing like this came up. I spent many nights doing patent searches, no results. I talked with my wife and we decided to take a gamble and applied for a patent.

    The first Handi-Racker was made for a little pocket pistol. Specifically, the Kel-Tec P3AT 380. I modified it to fit the Ruger LCP 380 and had a few made. I sold some locally and on Ebay. Requests started coming in for other models. Before I knew it there were 3, 4, then 5 to choose from. Small, Medium, Large, XL and one for the Beretta’s and Clones that have a tapered muzzle and exposed barrel.  

    January of 2014, Handi-Racker debuted at SHOT Show and we started getting serious about a dealer network. By January of 2015 we had a dealer network of 200 dealers and Cabela’s had placed it in all their retail outlets and online. When SHOT Show 2016 came, we introduced our new lineup to the nearly 300 dealers.

    We combined the Small and Medium unit to create the Handi-Racker 2 or HR2 Compact unit, and merged the Large and XL Handi-Racker to make the HR2 Full Sized unit. Now two Handi-Rackers will fit 95% of the pistols on the market. The Beretta unit remains as the third unit in the lineup.

    The new line has the same great Manufacturers Suggested Retail Pricing of $29.99 operates more guns per unit. Handi-Racker has one of the lowest Dealer buy in programs. A demonstration video can be seen at . Dealer inquires can be handled at

    By the time the next January 2017 rolled around we had molds made our first injected Handi-Rackers went to Vegas. Because of the investment into the molds we were able to lower the MSRP to $19.99 a 33% decrease on the same great tool. We went with Safety Green for the Compact units and Safety Orange for the Full sized units. There are also ridges on the edge to help pick up the Handi-Racker

    At that time we also introduced the Range-Racker it implements all 5 cuts in one unit with an optional base. The Range-Racker can be used like the Handi-Racker or mounted to a solid object or fixed to the base.

    We are now seeing other product out there. In order to stay away from patent infringement the others have to sweep the muzzle past part of their device, and no one clears jams like the Real Handi-Racker.

    Shoot Safe and

    Shoot Straight
