opinions on grip tape

I know it wouldn't look the best on a gun, but if I were to carry would grip tape be good on the slide somewhere so if needed I could rack the slide one handed against my clothes or some other surface? How practical would this be in a real situation if I was injured?

You don't need it. It's quite possible to rack the slide one-handed without it, so you really just need someone to show you how to use what you've got safely.

(Ummm, don't try to learn this from written directions or from a video. This particular skill really needs to be learned in person from someone willing to go hands-on to help you stay safe while learning.)

I already have a few ways. Just curious on something more tactical/faster.
Oh and BTW, I have read your website like a million times over. great stuff. will recommend to girls who are scared of guns but not scared of protecting themselves. maybe they will get over it

Just do like rambo

Rack it with your teeth and say "I'll be back!" (whilst spitting out broken teeth)
