2 comments on “Pistol Reload Techniques — The Ongoing Debate

  1. I teach both methods but emphasize racking the slide. My number one reason is the sheer multitude of different guns that I shoot. If I were to focus on only one gun then yes absolutely the the slide stop release is the faster method, however you’re only talking fractions of a second and the chance of errors increases significantly. That’s not a chance I am willing to take when life is on the line. Truth of the matter is if you find yourself, in a personal self defense situation which requires you to reload from slide lock, you probably shouldn’t have been there in the first place.
