I frequently get comments from “experts” who know that there is only one way to do something right, and it’s not the way I’m doing it. I have video of me reloading by racking the slide and reloading by hitting the slide stop, and I get people adamant that I’m doing it wrong every time. Well, which is the “right” way to release the slide on a reload.
Mrgunsngear has training and experience beyond what most people know, and that has lead him to the same conclusion I’ve learned from several very experienced trainers. He just published a great video discussion about the merits of racking over the top versus hitting the slide stop to release the slide, and I encourage you to watch with an open mind.
