If I had to, I would use my bare feet to hold the weapon, and my free hand to rack it.

Thats only if I had to.

Lets say, a home invasion shoot out, I need to clear a jam, and one of my arms has been blasted away already by the perps.

Default Limitations

I understand working w limitations better than most. I think it was a NightHawk ad but they make an all steel rear sight that makes it easy to charge one handed. (lesson learned from 1986 Miami.)

Practice w snap caps until it is second nature. When you get to the range, tell the RO what you are doing, why your doing it and offer to demonstrate w snap caps. When he sees you are safe and just making the best of a bad situation - I hope he will give the benefit of the doubt.

The glocks and glock-knock-offs have internal hammers. You would definitely want to avoid those.

With the use of only one hand maybe a good alternative would be to swap the auto for a revolver. The revolve is a time tested defense weapon and they are fun to shoot.

That is what i am thinking; buy something reasonably sturdy and reasonably priced (ruger p95) and get a shop to weld the charging handle from an SKS on the slide. With something that large on the slide, you should be able to stand sideways, cross arms, (muzzle down range) and cock it on your other forearm. Ya think?

Of course, you would have to consider if that extra weight would require a spring change, and concealed carry might be......challenging.

Good things to think about!!. I do have revolvers already, they are fun to shoot and are great guns but i just would like to not be limited to just those!

I was just looking and i found a company called MasterPeace Arms and they make semi-auto with a side cocker i would call it on the side that i think might work. But definently not a concealed carry gun, but that really isnt what i am looking for right now.

Again, thank you guys!!

Glock type guns are actually striker fired; there is no hammer on or in them anywhere.

Insert "stiker" for "hammer" then.

I have little familiarity with the internal workings of a glock because I would never touch one.

I can only observe what they look like on the outside and since there is obviously no external hammer they would be out of the question, from my point of view.

This "weapon" looks pretty good for the application you have in mind, yes.

Gives you all the advantages of semi-auto firing with none of the drawbacks of a slide.

I am guessing this baby has an internal bolt, like an M-60 or 50 cal machine gun. Looks like it anyway.
