willfully armed,

....not to hijack the thread, but, I like your signature line "Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns? "

I wonder about that myself?

The most foolproof method ive come across is to jam the top of the slide at your belt line and push in and down. The rear sit and slide catches on your clothing and racks the slide. even works with my 460 rowland and that thing has like a 24lb spring.

Using your manboob isnt reliable under stress takes too much coordination.

Real or not, with my jacked up shoulder I would not even attempt it. I can't raise my hand past 45 degrees to vertical straight out from my side without experiencing some pretty significant pain.

I believe with practice it can be done. Don't care what y'all say, this is an opinion. If a person can't do it then they may just not be strong/fast enough, that doesn't mean it's impossible with a stock gun.

some of the guys I was deployed with (non-US personnel) had a trick holster that allowed them to carry un-chambered, but in a quick downward push out of the holster, the slide would rack and chamber a round.

it was neat to see, but it was a tiny gun and only held about 8 rounds of 9mm. no thanks!

The old military 1911 holsters had a step built into them to rack the slide on. It was basically a double draw.

I use to work with a gentleman who was a very good pistol instructor who taught this method in one of his advanced classes. While I believe its one of the fastest ways to load a semi auto one handed. I think definitely practicing more then one way to load a semi auto one handed is important.

But to put any kind of loading skill to the test in a hot situation I definitely would not want to find out if im good enough with out al lot of range time and practice. It is hard enough to shoot straight, with somebody chucking rounds at your melon.

So I think practice that and other techniques find which ones would work for you and dispose of the ones that don’t.

I also think Eaglesix has it right "We do not publish these methods, because we feel they are much better demonstrated to the students live during a class, allowing the student an opportunity to perform and develop these skills in a controlled environment under the watchful eye and guidance of our instructors"..

i know that my friend who does teach this stuff really suggest you learn from a professional. AND FOR GOD SAKE MAKE SURE TO PRACTICE WITH OUT ANY AMMO AROUND. Intill your in a safe shooting enviorment and ready to go live.
