Beat the snot out of it till it works... good policy.
I never had any trouble out of my SAW (some consider it to be extremely problem prone), but I started out slapping mine around like a redheaded step child from the get go.

I'm going to have to watch more of this guy's videos.

I really like Clints teaching style, simple, basic, and straight forward. No ego or "Tactical Tim" garbage, just good reasoning and clear demonstrations. A trip to Thunder Ranch is definatly on my "Bucket List".

I like his no nonsense approach and description of the guys at the range. It is so true.

It's what I teach every one of my auto-loader students.

This MUST be a muscle memory function or you will find yourself DEAD!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I did a ton of the malfunction drills in the academy and constantly practice them. My instructors always stressed Tap,Rack and Ready instead of Bang as additional shots are not always necessary and automatically firing again after clearing a malfunction should not be a muscle memory.
I was unable to see the video above as it says the account was suspended.
I can't stress enough how important practice and muscle memory is!
