Leave Me Alone!!!
With the revolver it's never an issue, always 6 in the chamber. With the auto, One in the chamber is the only way. I added the 10-8 Performance rear site to the M&P 45. The 10-8 has a J shape on the barrel side of the site which will allow you with one hand, to rack the slide on your belt, jean or coat pocket, or if need be the bad guy's belt, jean pocket, or perhaps his face or lower jaw bone:sarcastic: The demo at my local dealer (the guy is a state cop and does tactical training as well) sold me. I was able to rack the slide with one hand on the side of my jeans by hooking the rear site!! Just in case I have a misfire :blink:
It's a viable drill. You never know when one of your extremities will be disabled in an armed confrontation. When I was an L/E Instructor, I used to partner them up, and have them take turns cuffing the non shooting hand behind their back and attach it to their belt. I would then have them shoot the qualification course with one hand cuffed behind their backs. including the reloads. We would also set up double feed and stove pipe malfunctions and have them clear the jam and get the gun going again. Not as easy as it looks. The hard part came, when I would have them cuff the strong hand (or right hand for you normal people) and do some drills left handed. I strongly suggest that when you practice these drills, you get some dummy rounds and use them. Live rounds are dangerous as the pistol will not be pointed down range and the possibility of shooting yourself or someone else in the leg, gut, ass, whatever, increases about 100%.
