Well, I sure don't shake the mag out of the magwell as she did.  But I do like her style.

 

I instinctively power rack that shit.  Seems easier then fumbling around for slide release.  But I'm sure there are plenty that use the slide release.

I usually drop to a knee then take the gat, sweep my leg, reach behind my back and release it using my tactical footwear.

That's how it's critically dynamically bodily alarmingly done! FAGS!

I've been using the slide stop for so long I can't rack it unless I'm clearing a stoppage. The slide stop is automatic.

Makes sense.  Because it's easier to stay on target with a reload and quicker vs all the extra movements required with racking the slide?

of course it is....and I don't find myself grabbing random guns off the streets. I shoot what I shoot and I practice with that.  The only reason to rack it is if you are retarded and can't find the lever.

Whatevzzzzzzzz....

 

Do you even gunfight, bro?  

 

I shoot IDPA and slide lock is part of doing battle.  When slide lock happens, and it fucking will, you have got to get back in the fight!

It's noticeably faster to use the slide lock so I use the slide lock.

 

My strategy will break down when I'm in an extended gunfight and I have to pick up a dead bad guy's gun to continue the fight. Also the dead bad guy will be prepared enough to bring spare mags, and I will have the presence of mind to grab them.

Something gay I found in the IDPA Rulebook:

 

8.2.2.3.  ESP Excluded Features and Modifications (Non-Inclusive list):

8.2.2.3.5.  Disabling the slide stop.

 

 

Wouldn't want that now, would we? :rolleyes:

Or New York reload. Cause I'm always in the primary, slayin' bodies, 2 is 1, guddago, time is life.

And my Limited gun is set up to not lock back on an empty mag.  So if I don't rack the slide to chamber a round I have to make the "pew pew" sound.  But it's rarely ever an issue.

I always get a chuckle when I see someone with a disabled slide stop run dry, reload and get a click, look puzzled for a split second and then rack that shit.  Slide stop 4eva yo!

Thumb won't reach the slide stop on a 1911, so it's rack that bitch. But just for that gun.

extended slide stop, or use the weak hand like all the SSTK badassmofos do. It's pretty easy to hit with the weak hand thumb as you're re-establishing the grip and coming back on target.

For me completely opposite. 1911 is one of the guns where the slide stop is placed in the "correct" place for me and I operate it with the weak hand. For many other pistols it's placed where I have my strong hand thumb and I rather have a good grip I like than a slide stop that works if the gun runs dry. Occasionally racking on empty is just a small price to pay for a better grip.


I shoot like an amoeba with special needs!
