Slingshot or Slide Release?
This is a discussion on Slingshot or Slide Release? within the Defensive Carry & Tactical Training forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'm not sure how unloading the gun ensures it's loaded????
I'm also not sure what the problem with press checking would be, IF DONE CORRECTLY.

Tangle - his point wasn't to empty my weapon. It was to show that instead of press checking a weapon; you should cycle the slide if you are unsure whether its loaded or not. This will ensure that the bullet seats properly and that the weapon is cocked properly. I continue to press check because I believe it is a valuable habit.
Rob's reaction to my press in class was so animated, I couldn't resist the opportunity to rib him a bit. BTW - I highly recommend his classes. They are both informative and teach great gun handling skills.

Okay, I've read all 4 pages so far... I now have a headache!
Seriously, it makes one really think about why they do what they do! I'm going to revisit both methods and pay closer attention to the benefits and disadvantages of both.
