    Impossible. I' not sure how you would unchamber a round with the pistol in a holster.

    Had someone do it this afternoon with an OWB holster, just did it with my MTAC Spartan (IWB). Maybe ya'll should think about things, try things before declaring them impossible.

    I only drop the mag and un-chamber a round when I'm going to clean my EDC, it has to be out of the holster for me to clean it. The only other times I remove my EDC from the holster is to shoot at a target, or a BG. Luckily, since I've been retired I have only had to shoot at targets.

    So I'm guessing that the guy dropped the mag, then kept his strong hand pressing down on the grip and retracted the slide to eject the chambered round with his off hand?

    With many pistol/holster combinations, it is possible to release the magazine. Racking the slide to unchamber a round would be at best a two handed effort, if possible. The ejected cartridge would still be inside the holster and have no place exit.

    Even if this was possible, it would be unsafe and a big mistake to assume the chamber was empty without physically inspecting the pistol.

    Guy showed up at the range with a holstered, loaded pistol. All firearms are required to be unloaded when entering the range. Most shooters can't handle unholstering and unloading a pistol without sweeping someone/everyone else at the range.

    ejected round comes out of pistol and flies thru the air just like any other time.

    Weapons to be fired on the range is fine, I don't go to ranges that want to control my ccw.

    Private indoor ranges around here don't care but at State run outdoor ranges, after you enter a lane, any pistol(s) you are going to shoot have to be cleared and placed on a wooden rack with the slide open. Once the range master allows commencement of shooting, you can reload and fire. This practice is to insure safety while people are down range setting or changing their targets.
