- It's still mind boggling to me that people believe they will have the time or ability to chamber a round when they need it. It's hard to tell from the video quality, but it looks like he actually fails to chamber a round on the first try. By the time he chambers a round on the second try, it's too late.This is why you keep one in the chamber.
I think that's what's going on. He's carrying without one in the chamber and he short racks it the first try...I don't know if it would have made a difference for him, since he was shot right off the bat, but it goes to show what carrying an unloaded gun can cost you...I am wondering why he keeps trying to rack his gun. Was it jammed? Did he carry it without one in the pipe, and then kept grabbing for the slide as a muscle reflex?
Same, I have actually only fired my carry gun using the sights a couple of times, I made it an extension of my body by firing round after round by point instead of aim. I may even remove my sights as they are just something to catch on clothing during the draw.Sorry for the man that it occurred at all. Always one chambered, always !
He was obviously doing the point and shoot method, which most people try to do in an actual situation, and never have practiced it. I have always practiced that and have gotten where I"m better at that than actually aiming.
