My favorite things are gadgets, but not just because they are usually something new and interesting or ridiculously fun at times. Rather, because there is a story behind them, a reason someone came up with an idea or professed a need for such a device. I’m always interested in that story.
Enter Chris McAninch, owner and founder of Handi-Racker, and here is the story. The Handi-Racker was designed initially out of need. Someone came to McAninch and wanted to know if he could devise a tool to help them rack their semiauto pistol. They had a problem with their hand that kept them from being able to grip the slide with enough force to actually rack it.
“I get calls every week from people who just want to thank me for making it
McAninch thought about it and after a few trials, came up with something that looked like a plastic bar of soap, but considerably more interesting.
Since his first successful creation and subsequent request from folks all over the nation, McAninch says he gets weekly calls from people (veterans mostly)
for no other reason than to thank him for his invention. That, he says, is what makes him passionate about this product.
If you think your store is short on great gadgets and want to distribute the Handi-Racker, McAninch would love to hear from you. For more, visit handi-racker.com. ASJ
