    Always good to review...
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Good video. My gf caught him not tapping when there was a double feed, after he cleared the gun and replaced the mag.

    Nice link.

    This video made me wonder, is it safe for the gun to "set up" an intentional double-feed, as he did?

    I've never had a double feed, I understand the principal and how to clear it, but I'd like to practice it. However, I've heard you should never drop a round directly into the chamber of most autos, since it can/will damage the extractor.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Much appreciated. I had my first FTE during an IDPA match last week. I made the solution harder than it really was. This'll be an important survival skill, and help me not be too embarrassed the next time.

    The extractor never makes contact with the bullet as the slide dose not go into battery.

    On a 1911, placing a round in the chamber and closing the slide forces the extractor tip over the edge of the rim. Not good for the extractor.

    I love hearing Clint Smith. He is a no-nonsense instructor. I like his segments on Personal Defense TV.

    I'd love to take a class from him in person... as I understand it, he's far more... colorful... off camera.

    Straight-forward and easily understood video. I really enjoyed it. Thanks, Clint, and whoever linked it here.
