    For a lefty, your reload technique is the best, maybe the only way.

    For right handed people, it's not a fine motor skill to hit the slide release, because the support thumb usually rests on the slide release, anyway. Of course it varies from person to person, and pistol to pistol.

    I always enjoy posts with pictures and videos. It takes a lot of work to put it together, thanks

    Consider that there may be a time when you are fighting for your life and your adrenaline is pumping, it may be cold and/or wet. Not only can the conditions make it difficult to hit the slide lock, but stress/nervousness can also make it difficult. The bottom line is, no matter the conditions reloads and malfunction drills have a better chance of going smoothly when using a gross motor skill.

    The added plus of tap n rack on a reload is its exactly the same motion as clearing a malfunction.

    I learned from training (multiple sources) the benefits of "slingshotting" the slide instead of pressing the slide release. One other advantage is that slingshotting works without thought on all semiautos that I know of. The slide release location varies from gun to gun.

    Exactly. Slide locks also vary in size. Glock SLs I believe are all flush with the receiver. Sig 226 has more of a "ledge"

    Except Kahr pistols. Their manual states to use the slide release lever to minimize the chance of getting a failure to chamber the round upon inserting a fresh mag.

    This is one reason I got rid of my Kahr.

    Nice video! You can use snap caps so you can safety do the drill indoors, and get the slide to close when you "load."

    nice videos...

    you might want to take a look at shooting coach's gripping a handgun video as it discusses some of the same fundementals with more detail and explanation...it might also be helpful to mention that the support hand should have good contact with the support side of the grip for good control...

    good tap and rack video...i would also argue the sligshotting method as it is possible to ride the slide under stress and cause a failure to go into battery...whereas the slide release is a positive disengagement of the slide and a ful power rack home everytime...i understand the fine motor skill portion of your explanation but it is one that is easily overcome by using the release a great deal...in different positions and while moving and firing/loading i have found my fingers go instictively to the slide release and trip it very reliably...it can also be performed with either hand quite easily depending on your stiuation...good demos....and well spoken...well done...

    What is depicted in the video is not the slingshot method.

    This is a good reason to stick with firearms that are similar (so the release is roughly the same shape/size and in the same relative location). Otherwise, you better make sure to train, train, train.

    Added: One should always train, train, train anyway.. if at all possible.

    regardless of whether the handler uses only 2 fingers to "slingshot" the slide or grasps it from above they are still "slingshotting" the slide and run the same potential of riding the slide forward and preventing the slide from going into battery....slingshotting does not require the slide to only be handled with 2 fingers from behind...the action of pulling the slide back and releasing it is slingshotting as its the same action required to operate a slingshot...

    the videos were well done...another good place to look on youtube is todd jarrets videos as he has some great advice on gripping the handgun along with some other very informative shooting videos....

    when tap n rack was first introduced to me, my instructor required me to tap myself in the shoulder as I racked to prevent me from forming a bad habit. So I was letting go completely.

    I have been shooting/training for defense for three years now I have never once had an issue with "riding the slide."

    I think your more likely to encounter difficulty hitting the slide release than you are of riding the slide.
