    This is actually a thought my buddy was gave me when we were going over the steps and the fact that the gun has to be unloaded. Well, i figured it would freak ppl out MORE, lol. but there IS a good point here about it being faster to load.

    ive thought about it.... but then take into the consideration that dust will get in there... people will look... and then tell the police "theres a man with a gun open, and i can see the bullets!"

    Good point, but don't think it would fly.

    With my weapon, it's hard to get the slide to release like that.

    you guess ? geez... 16 shots aint bad bro. To date: id say i have put roughly 6000+ rounds through it in a 3-4 year span. I have ONLY had to replace the shell extractor once. (Was done for free by Smith & Wesson lifetime warranty)

    Try not using the slide release with your thumb. Instead, try "slingshotting" the slide by yanking the slide back and letting it go. If you have a mag with rounds in it, it should release and chamber a round. This is faster in some cases.

    I still don't think carrying with the slide locked back is a good idea - too many issues I see with that method.

    ah, I see what you mean, lock the slide back on the last round hold open, then insert the fully loaded mag, and when you need it, just pull it back slightly and let it go forward, still don't think I would try this.

    Maybe if you had a holster that covered the action. With a Serpa, I'd be afraid of crud getting in there and gumming it up when you need it.

    I'm also not sure it would be that much faster than just racking the slide. With some practice you can draw, rack and fire very close to as fast as you can draw and fire a "ready" gun. The normal strong-side hip draw stroke is up, rotate, and push forward. If you grab the slide with your weak hand as you rotate the gun up and then hold the slide as you push the gun forward, it'll be racked by the time your arm is extended.

    There are some videos of Israeli soldiers around. Those guys draw, rack and shoot faster than I can draw and shoot.

    Two big drawbacks:



    1. Crud WILL get in there. This may give you bad trouble when you least need it.

    2. IF someone got a hand on it in a scuffle, you've just given them a hell of a lot of leverage. (This is not likely, but is possible. Surely 99.9% have better awareness than letting someone get that close.)



    And as mentioned above, a draw & rack is so close speed-wise that it just isn't worth it.

    Your right: it looks like it only covers the action partially...

    OH, ok that's pretty standard then.

    \AT the same time, you would think that if they can get 16 9mm's in a similarly sized mag, you would think that they could fit more than 10 .22s

    Only 10 rounds because the mag is single stack - .22LR tends to jam if you double stack them due to their small diameter.

    ahhhh - i was sondering why they EVER single stacked ammo in Mags. Always seemed like double stacking was a better way to go, bu that makes sense.

    .22 LR tends to jam.

    I would never rely on a rimfire, especially a .22 LR
