    Um... Well... I suppose the upside is that the laws of physics make it virtually impossible to make a GLOCK any uglier than it already is... So Yeah, go for it, but you MUST post picks! :confused:

    I'm betting this will be EPIC and on par with the "Homey" Night Sights! :D

    On a serious note, I'll admit the I'm no expert on GLOCK accessories... But... I've never heard of a charging handle for a handgun.

    Most folks accomplish racking the slide 1 handed with a replacement rear sight. They have a vertical face on the muzzle side so you can brace it against a solid object and shove "1 handed" to cycle the weapon. ;)

    You want to "what if" the situation to death? "What if" your trip and fill your barrel with mud? You gonna walk around with a condom over your muzzle? "What if" you get in a prolonged gun battle? Are you going to carry 300 rounds of ammo loaded in magazines all around your belt?

    There are some accessories that have ZERO purpose in the real world. A "racker" or charging knob on a handgun is just such a deal. They are meant for open class IPSC guns with scope mounts that cover the slide to the point you cannot get a grip on it.

    Step away from the mall ninja catalog and buy the #1 accessory necessary for a fighting handgun...a case of ammo.

    The best accesory for someone that can't rack a slide is a revolver.

    Because one handed reloading of a revolver is easy?

    Charging handles are more for competition guns where the rear sight has been removed and a red dot sight has been mounted in a milled inlet in the slide.

    I'm with Tack on this one. If its a defensive weapon that you carry, I'd keep it simple and learn to rack the slide with the rear sight on a boot lip, or a belt edge, or pocket. Just keep your finger out of the trigger guard while you do it. Practice with dummy rounds.

    I got plenty of ammo I'm not worried about that ha!! I personally really love the glock it's simple black and made to kill I don't want flashy crap lol. But everyone's different I mean the grip tape on the slide would be good to have to for the sweaty hands guy lol.

    Grip tape on the slide?

    Buddy... enthusiasm is good an all but your should take the earlier advice of Robocop10mm and PUT DOWN the mall ninja catalog...

    Seriously buddy, try to CCW a pistol with grip tape on the slide... bet drawing and re-holstering would be a bit "rough".;)
