    After carrying hundreds of handguns through the 30+ years , I have ended up with a Glock 26 and a Keltec P-3AT as my BUG. I think I have finally got it right.

    A few of mine:

    -Good training is always a good investment.
    -Progress is when you've spent way more on ammo than you did on the gun.
    -There is no such thing as a small, light, easily-concealed handgun that is also highly reliable, accurate, powerful, and fun to shoot... unfortunately.
    -CCW involves a lot of decisions about personal priorities and tradeoffs.
    -Paper targets are boring.
    -Glock should make a single stack 9mm.
    -Cops don't pick up their brass at the range.

    1. Buy/use the gun that fits your hand.
    2. Use the caliber that you can control.
    3. Get professional training in defensive shooting...even if you're in the 5%...repeat regularly.
    4. A well-placed .22LR will make you just as dead as a .45cal (see #3).
    5. Glocks are good guns. I don't own any (see #1).
    6. For Home Defense: Handguns are what you use to fight your way to your shotgun.

    I enjoy watching the 95% of wingnuts buzzing through a mag as fast as possible to impress the obligatory wife/girlfriend (who couldn't care less), dropping the empty, and then fumbling the fresh mag, dropping it as well, finally slamming it home, tripping the slide stop (with the cool Don Johnson arm flick), and then zipping through another.

    Of course, the guy has muzzle swept just about everybody by the time he gets it done.

    *Most girls I have seen shoot, can shoot better than myself
    *"you get what you pay for" doesn't apply to all firearms.
    *If you think about how much has changed over the past 100 years, guns haven't really advanced very much. When are phasers going to get here, come on engineers
    *Most people I know that own 1 or 2 firearms, don't know how to disassemble and clean their gun.
    *Caliber discussions get old fast.
    *Stay open minded. Don't be the biased jerk.

    Best lesson learned here for me...

    I don't have any guns... They were all lost in a tragic boating accident.

    Pulling the slide back and letting it go, rather than using the slide release.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Thanks! That is what I was thinking. I am assuming that using the slide release is safer/better??

    No don't make that assumption even though you will see the best shooters in the world using a slide release because it's faster. Those pro shooters are not on a two way range. Most operators I have shot with always do an overhand sling shot as you can clear a malfunction using the same motion. Fine motor skills get a bit tougher when bullets are coming at you.

    I can agree with everything but item #6.

    I'm a lefty and I prefer the slingshot method primarily becasue that's the way I was taught, and the way I've practiced for quite a while. I also like it becasue it's the same motion I use for tap-rack-bang/reassess/whatever drills. So it's just MY preference.

    But my theory is, "Do what works for you". Both seem like viable ways to strip the next cartridge from the mag and load it into the chamber - I'm just surprised how often people think only one way is the "right" way.

    Sorry if it didn't come out like that when I wrote it.
