Fort Hood

In 5th Army,it was SOP to carry with an empty chamber. Many of us learned to chamber a round on the draw by pushing the pistol onto a slight ledge in the military holsters for the 1911a1. It's a pull, push, pull draw motion, that get's smooth and fast with practice. It's best to practice with snap caps, because short stroking which only cocks the piece is common at first. Hearing the slide rack on the draw definitely adds to the drama.
