I like this post .
I think its a neglected and underthought aspect for fundamentals for serious owners of semi auto pistols. For them to know how the specific functions and mechanics of their pistol or shotgun, rifle, etc apply and come to play at a so much equal level as simply shooting your gun straight. You can't shoot the gun and expect 100% function if your brain and hand are not cognizant that its cocked and ready to make a difference between your last seconds of life. And you don't know if your pump shotgun is ready if its not racked fully rearward and forward safety off etc. I would suggest the emphesis on carrying a pistol chambered for ease of rapid deployment. Indoor genaral rehersal of gun presentation including extra thought on correct hand placement for your gun is a must.
