Third bold: The main reason why I do, and everyone should carry atleast one spare magazine.
Last bold: I agree completely, and yes, sorry for the hijack!

Do you not practice "getting off the X?" You should never allow someone with a knife to be close enough to you that they can stab you, and you should never be standing still in a close range SD situation unless you have cover. Standing still = getting dead.

Try this: Set up a double feed with snap caps in your gun and holster it. Then, get your heartbeat into the black zone (160-200 bpm depending on age), draw your gun, start sprinting, then fix your malfunction.
And yes, you should carry a spare magazine for reliability purposes.

While I agree with snap caps being effective for most clearing drills, it's predicable and not all ways the same as a real malfunction. The last firearm I had that was full of stove pipes and jams was a Gen 4 Glock 17 and let me tell you it was not always easy to clear them. A few of the malfunctions would have left me dead if they did not happen at a range. This is not a bash on Glock, it's just the only gun I owned in a while that has had major malfunctions.

I wish Glock when have stepped up with an AMBI one like the M&P though! Now why are the aftermarket slide release/slide stops are so poplar with other Glock owners? The stock slide stop sucks, and many of those folks may shoot competition. Slide release is definitely faster then a tactical over the hand or sling shot method.
Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
