I believe you can address the issue by always having a "partner" with you. It seems something along the lines of a boot jack could be beneficial. A smal but weighted wood or polymer frame that the pistol slips into in an upright position, would then allow you to rack the slide with one hand. Another thought would be to use less weigh but have it "catch" on the front of the range shelf or table. Good luck.
