So yesterday I've been playing around with my Glock using snap caps and decided to do some press checks, chamber checks, brass checks whatever you wanna call it for practice and for fun. Is there any pros and cons to doing this? I'll be carrying my EDC with an empty chamber for a while until I get really confortable with it. But eventually I would like to have it chambered and make it a habit of doing just a quick press check before leaving the house. What do you guys think? Some say its pointless, some say its a very smart thing to do especially if your trusting that weapon with your life. Is there any setbacks involved on the round if you press check or if you do it more than once? I know there is a chamber inditcator on the Glock but I think seeing it for yourself gives you peice in mind that your gtg. I noticed when I do a press check that I got to push the gun forward or use my thumb to close the slide into battery. Some people I've seen sometimes give the slide a bump or 2 from the rear to make sure a round is seated and the slide is fully locked into battery. Again is this a bad habit to get into? Or is it something that I'm never going to use in reality? Most people I've read just say its optional if you want its fine, some say that its people with OCD that do this but than again your trusting your life with it so why not considering it takes just 2 seconds. Anyways, any tips & advice? Do you guys do it at all or sometimes do it?
