    Drop Mag, Rack Slide and look. That pinky crap is a youtube thing. You have eyes, use them. As far as the dry fire, why slam your striker into your breach face if you don't have too?

    I am curious what folks do if there is a magazine safety/disconnect. Do they put in a empty magazine to allow them to pull the trigger?

    You ignore all posts giving evidence a final trigger test is standard and used extensively throughout the Army, in competition meets, and elsewhere and that logic demands that not wanting to use it because of safety fears is itself the reason for using it- and often post a mocking remark with a crazy little animated dancing figure as if behaving as a 14 yr old somehow negated all this. It doesn't.

    And also ignored is that the danger and reason for using trigger-checks lies not in "this one time of unloading a gun" but in the series of numerous times you will be unloading a gun over a lifetime of shooting. As the chances of having a car accident "this one day" are remote, but not at all remote over one's driving lifetime, the same goes for gun-unloading accidents - and that is why you practice safe-driving as a habit and that is why you have the trigger-test as SOP, as built in procedures.

    Again, there are other ways, like not unloading guns at home routinely, to approach the danger of failing to spot a live round in a visual test, and there are personal choices to go ahead and do whatever one want with checks. But those are different animals than that a trigger-check is ridiculous.

    Which has been my point. Do what you like.

    I do remember the instructions for my AR-15 state that after gun is verified empty, pull trigger before long term storage to relieve pressure from spring. Not sure if it is needed, but I do it, not as a safety measure. If the magazine is removed and the chamber is open and empty,the gun is empty as it can get.
    Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.


    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    Don't get your panties in a wad over a joke. If you need I can toss more LOL's in my post if you can;t figure it out.

    The pistol is checked and verified that it is UNLOADED. With a striker fired weapon, should the trigger be pulled to release spring tension---or not?
