I'll play, even though I'm lazy and didn't read the 11 pages , so I am sure the narrative has changed by this point,Hello Fellow Addicts,
Just randomly thinking about the press check. To me, it seems like a solution looking for a problem. Or maybe a better description would be a solution to address bad carry practices, like carrying on an empty chamber?
The only scenario for me personally where I could see using a press check would be if I took a gun off of someone else to use in a tactical scenario. The chances of me being in a scenario like that are about ZERO.
Can anyone provide sensible reasons for this practice?
Thanks in advance for input.
Sounds more complicated than necessary, but if it makes you warm & fuzzy, be all means keep up your garage barrel routine.I have a clearing barrel in my garage next to my bench. Every day on my way out, I drop the mag of whatever pistol I'm carrying, rack the slide (3 times) and verify clear. Then reload, chamber, top off the mag and holster.
Why blame them?Thanks Gunsite.
I agree with you. Press checks are Hollywood, and meaningless.If I have a gun loaded it will have one in the hole. A full mag and one in the barrel. No exceptions, ever. The only time I have ever press checked is while shooting with others. We are usually shooting each others guns so sometimes I will press check. That's the only time I ever do it.
I guess you just don’t shoot enough, take enough classes or train in a complex environment. I see some one in almost every class go to shoot a drill, quals or demo and click. Guess they should have press checked. 🤔🤷🏼♂️🤔🤷🏼♂️I agree with you. Press checks are Hollywood, and meaningless.
