Came across Rob Pincus' post on Facebook today titled, "Why I only teach ONE Reload technique as a fundamental defensive skill... and why I don't "press check":
In the training I've received, the schools of thought were you never fired to slide lock if possible and there's a place for press checking, generally speaking. I don't think there's a place for press checking while in the middle of a defensive situation, if that's his point. I'm intrigued to take a course of his to see the "other side of the coin". He does extoll some common sense in knowing if you have a round in the chamber or not.
Anyone have thoughts on the matter?
