Default New video: One hand pistol reload

If for whatever reason you can use only one hand to reload your pistol.

Good informative post there kcolg. That one hand reload method could come in handy in a situation with some unforeseen circumstances.

That's a situation I have never imagined. Something to think consider for sure. Good video.

As always, practice makes perfect. Also, be sure to practice it with your non-dominant hand, 'cause you never know.

Why are you using you knee? Is your holster broken?

You will be able to grip your handgun tighter and control it much better by applying pressure and holding it in the bend of the knee. The more you bend your knee, the more control and tighter the grip. You will have limited control with a holster, and depending on where you carry, it may not be that manageable. Remember, the situation you are in has limited you to one hand operation only and it may not be your dominate firing hand.

Good point, what you say plus some people carry their gun in their pockets, side draw ,ankle or belly holsters that might make it difficult to perform this reload, also if under stress I think this way is easier than reholstering your gun with an open slide as fine motor skills tend to diminish under stress or so I've been told...
