Loaded Chamber



Empty Chamber



Only thing I need to press is my pants.

Allow the index finger to drop down into the space between the end of the barrel hood and the breech face. If there was a round in the chamber, you will feel it.

Sorry Frank, but that is the silliest thing I have seen you write. I am not sticking my finger into a partial open slide. I don't want to be slide bit in any fashion.

My press check is done when before I holster my weapon in the morning.
I always drop my mag. empty my chamber, inspect and lube my pistol if needed then chamber a round, drop the mag top off, load and holster.

Like Mark, I'm not sticking my finger into the chamber of an auto. Bolt action rifle, maybe. But even then, I'm ending up with an oily finger. Which I don't care to then gunk up my gun with.

My Baretta has an external extractor.

So forgive me for asking, but after reading this thread from start to finish, I still don't know what an administrative reload is...

Reloading before going to slide lock.

The concept is that if/when there is a lull or a time out in the battle, . . . you grab a full mag and replace the partial mag in your weapon with the full one.

Then you have a full mag with which to continue the battle, . . . and you somehow have to find a place to put the partial, . . . so you don't lose it, . . . but at the same time, . . . not confusing it with others you may have that ARE fully loaded.

I personally don't see it as a concept that most CHL people should ever concern themselves with, . . . being in Fallujah, . . . yeah, . . . Cleveland, . . . nahhhhhh. If you are doing an admin reload in Cleveland, . . . with a hand gun, . . . nahhhhhh.

May God bless,
Dwight

I don't do press checks generally, but I have done them in the past. I know my 1911 is always loaded, as it's my EDC and is kept cocked and locked. I also know both my Glocks are loaded at a glance, as the triggers are forward, and being as though they are carry weapons for specific times, I keep these always loaded and charged as well.
I have done press checks on my Colt Mark IV and my Delta Elite, whenever I pulled them from the safe, but I no longer keep either of them loaded, so there's no need.
