    Thumbs up Last Round Open on a CCW

    I am actually looking at purchasing a Diamondback DB9 in the future and I know that it does not have this feature. I just wanted to guage people's opinion on how important is having the 'Slide Lock Open on the Last Round' on a Carry Conceal Weapon ??? I just wanted to add that this is not about the choice of gun, etc. just if this feature is important to you. Thanks and God Bless

    Tells you your out and time to change the mag. With only 6 +1 rounds, you might find yourself in a reload situation and that might cost you a few seconds to realize you need to insert a new mag. If you practice enough that might help but why not just get a glock G26 and have 4 more rounds in the mag plus the lock-open feature?

    I practice both emergency and administrative reloads so while I prefer the slide to lock back it's not the end if it doesn't

    I highly prefer it but it isn't a show stopper for me.

    If you got into a true SD situation,could you remember to round count,or would you just wait for that earth shattering "CLICK"?

    There's also the matter of one-handed manipulations. Releasing a locked-back slide one-handed is easier than fully racking a slide one-handed.

    I can't think of why one would not prefer to have the slide lock back? Even so, I carry at least an LCP every day because it has proven to be reliable, and I trust it more than any other model in that platform. Everything is a compromise.

    I have both types. Not really an issue for me.

    Not to mention a proven reliable pistol! Although not as thin as the DB9 but the DB9 is so new and may need some time to have it's issues worked out.

    if you reload before your last round is fired, than the slide is in battery and when you replace the empty hmag with a loadedone, you do not have to rack the slide before your next shot.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    That is some serious shot counting in a stressful situation.
