Appreciate the feedback, but I think you may have missed the point of the article. The controversy is not about whether or not a "press check" should be performed, but in what manner it is done.

I've been safely performing a chamber check with a 1911 the same way for 40 years. Recently while at one well-known school I was told in no uncertain terms that I had been doing it wrong. Why? Because my way not their way.

While some of the articles in S.W.A.T. may be old hat to you, I and others, when I put the editorial together I have to remember that we have a new generation of shooters coming up, and they are seeking information on different techniques.

Thanks again for your thoughts.
