Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

By Redeyes- "Good post. Yeah, my baseline is a Glock so most pistols have a huge slide release. I was wondering what people would do with a pistol that has a slide release like most Sigs, 1911's, HK's and Berettas if those pistols were their go to pistol.

Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

Guys, Dave's point, and mine, is if you will only be able to utilize gross motor skills under stress then your action will be limited to- -Grabbing your pistol by the butt (if you have a retention holster, you will not be able to flip a bail or push a button to get it out) - hitting someone with it ...

Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

The line you quoted about "cultivating" was not meant to support one specific technique but all. It's a guideline. I support all three techniques and teach all three also. But like everyone else I prefer them in order. In this case, in response to JG, I won't gear 100% my training toward a pistol th...

Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

It's nice to see cooler heads prevailing on this subject as a while back it became a knife fight. I think a while back guys didn't realize how popular releasing the slide using the stop has been and that the reasons for doing so are as well grounded as the other two TTPs. As an example, I use the st...

Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

I use the slide stop to release the slide unless the pistol doesn't have one. In that case I'll slingshot with thumb forward.

Re: Pressure switches for lights? Pros and cons?

Con- In the past, pressure switches were very fragile and were prone to rips and tears. Much of the issues were caused by the users failure to manage the cable. When this happens, the cable portion can become caught, torn or ripped out of the light. The fact that there were limited ways to affix the...

Re: Article: Setting Up a Home Defense Pistol

WML for the house. I never worry about flagging a family member or anything "I'm not willing to destroy" because its too easy to ID said target before the pistol's pointed at them. That is the primary reason the light is mounted on the pistol in the first place. The second reason is that I like the ...

Jack, Speaking for myself, I wasn't being a critic. Only offering current info that I believe to shed light on your comment. The 1911 is my favorite pistol.

Re: Should firearms be defensive ?

Weather a firearm is offensive or defensive has absolutely nothing to do with the either the weapon system or the distance in which is it used. It has to do with the manner it is applied at the time. Examples- o An M240 MG engaging targets beyond 500 meters on the next ridge line may be part of your...

Re: More Fucking Glock problems- Trigger Safety broken

Why bother, get a good 1911 there is a good reason it has been in front line service for 100 years. Primarily because the Hague convention prohibits expanding ammo. Random thoughts... I certainly wouldn't say that a primary reason for the 1911's long service is due to the Hague convention, but it m...

Re: What AR stock are you running and why?

Browning, I know the Rogers stock is lighter than the CTR and so is the B5 Brovo stock. Both the Brovo and the Rogers stocks are more "plasticky" (kind of like a toy army man) and are less glass filled then the Sopmod or CTR/MOE, which is why they are so light and less expensive generally. The roger...

Re: ACOG Advice

A couple thoughts... ANY visible light, red dot, what have you, between your NVGs and your Tgt, degrades your ability to see your target clearly. This may not be a show stopper, but degradation is degradation. Yes, you can use a visible red dot on lowest settings and it may have limited utility (if ...

Re: ACOG Advice

Anyone equating a red dot to an ACOG doesn't have much trigger time behind an ACOG. They serve two different functions, but the ACOG is a far more versatile device. I see it as exactly the same function. A point of aim presented to the operator to enact a strike. A $2,000 military combat sight, to ...

Got it. The M4 uses AA batteries which many like. It also has a longer bat life. However, for me, Like the Eo, one of the biggest advantages of the larger FOV is due to nvg use. For the Aimpoint specifically, the T1s small size and light weight trumps this advantage. the M4 is still a great choice, ...
