Again, thank you guys!!

Looks like a side cocking Mac-11. Hoot to shoot, not terably accurite. Tec-9, or knock off, would work as well?

I am not sure of how to design it but maybe some sort of bracket that would clamp to the bench? It would take some thinking to design it but I would imagine it being something that would "hold" the slide stationary (potentially hooking onto the sight if it is sturdy enough) and then you push the gun forward to cock it. Not sure how well it would work but it is the first thing that popped into m head.

Had a Staff Sergeant teach us a few ways to keep an auto loader in a fight.

Hooking the rear sight on a belt edge or tip of a boot sole's dress edge. To reload we would turn the pistol butt forward and tuck it in the belt to change mags. If the slide was locked to the rear at that point then you could pull the slide back in the same manner to get the pistol recharged or you could use teh slide release. This method works with pistols with exposed hammers or with striker fired pistols. You do however need to be cautious and very muzzle aware. If you shoot where there are tables , benches or counters, you could invert the pistol and charge with the muzzle pointing down range and hook teh sight on the table or bench edge and drive the frame forward.

You do need to have a sturdy rear sight for this method and it has to have enough of a shelved face on it to get good purchase on the lip of whatever you are using for charging it. Novak and low snag sights do not work well for this method.

Another option is to have a gunsmith install a charging handle in a dovetail on your slide. Some competition pistols run a type of charging handle in place of the rear sight, when red dot optics are used. Or there is this version that attaches at the rear of a Glock slide:

IIRC, The NRA rag had something like that a loooonnnnggg time ago, but it had the shooter pushing the 1911 nose down. It was a "channel" made of wood that did not fasten to the bench. Long enough to do the job, but not too long that it could not be kept in the range bag.

The "channel" interior was just enough to clear the barrel, but not the slide.

The creator kept it by his SD setup in the house and could rack the slide in a moment's notice. When carrying, he already was cocked and locked.

Grip tape enables you to rack off anything, including skin if desperate. I put it on ALL of my pistols, no exceptions. If you take some CQB or Street Defense courses they will teach you also. The most common and reliable way is your boot, especially with the tape.

This is my main EDC. It is an abused Glock 19 with more than 50,000 rounds. This tape has been there most of it's life and still grips great.
