    Post-Op Revolver Reload

    Here you will see the best technique that I can find with a wrapped left (weak) hand reloading my SP101.

    I recently had two surgeries on my left hand to repair 3rd degree burns. I found this to be an excellent time to practice my one handed revolver reloads w/o the option to cheat.

    The reason I did not completely omit my left hand in the reload process is because unless you are completely dismembered, you will at least have a stump to work with in the process.

    Please critique! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1397007939.330048.jpg

    Looks like you have it down pretty well, nice they left your thumb unwrapped.

    I think I'm going to call you "Mr. Brightside."

    It looks like a pretty good technique to me. One thing to watch out for is to avoid touching the forcing cone, as that can get hot pretty quick. It looks like you're clear of it when actually loading, just don't grab it while getting to that position.

    Good luck with the hand, hope it all heals up well.

    As Clint Eastwood said in "Heatbreak Ridge" adapt and overcome. Looks like you have it down.

    Actually with full size autos it's not hard to do with one hand only with practice. Even clearing jams. Though tougher with the weak hand.

    Not bad.

    A police training film for one department I know of showed a technique for wounded officers to use. Using the thumb and fingers of the grip hand to push the cylinder release and push the cylinder out, the weapon was turned upside down and the chin pushed the ejector rod. The revolver pas then placed between the knees, speed loader grabbed and used. The. Grip hand then took control of the revolver and the cylinder was closed against the thigh.

    A similar technique was used for the auto. The grip hand drops the empty mag. The pistol was turned upside down between the knees and the fresh magazine inserted. The grip hand takes control and releases the slide.
    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and the personal responsibility of his fellow man.
