Can't wait for Beretta to bring out a tip up 380. Maybe it's there and I don't know it. Meanwhile I've helped the petitte rack the PPK etc by having them stretch the gun out and down with the strong hand while the weak hand, also stiff armed, grasps the slide, with a piece of leather, rubber, or router cloth, and by rocking the shoulders, even the P3-AT (a bad one) is doable. The recoil spring isn't the only obstacle, it's when you have to fight the hammer spring also. That makes the DAO auto a bear to rack.
