Best shooting Drill | Immediate Action Drills | Pistol Techniques | Tactical Rifleman

good afternoon guys Rob here with you
again out here at t1G what Sid is going to demonstrate now is the
immediate action drill with the pistol so the drill is going to be two hits on
steel two hits on steel he’s going to draw his gun with that applying the
proper fundamentals that good aggressive Ford leaning stance the good grip
established in the holster that we just got done talking about and then he’s
going to fire hitting the steel twice alright if anything were to happen
meaning he pulls the trigger and the gun doesn’t go bang for whatever reason they
were failure to feed failure to fire stovepipe it doesn’t matter he’s going to perform
immediate action he’s going to take his fingers straighten outside the trigger
guard he’s going to bring his gun into his workspace tap the bottom of the
magazine rotate the gun over pull and let go of the slide re-establish his
grip punch back out on the sights get that saddle I’m inside pitcher and pull
the trigger without disturbing that relationship okay Sid any questions with
the drill alright go ahead and load make ready if you need to shooters two hits
on steel on the command a threat to its on steel in the command and threat
standby but follow through search and assess remember we’re not in a race to
get back into the holster so if you see here Sid has a stovepipe
which is actually a type two malfunction similar to the one with the carbine the
immediate action drill is the same he doesn’t get a click he gets a spongy
mushy trigger when he does that when he pulls the trigger and the gun doesn’t go
bang finger straightening outside the trigger guard he’s going to bring it
into his workspace tap the bottom of the magazine pull let go to the side and get
back out on target one of the reasons why we don’t recommend creating that
knife hand and judi chopping it back to your face is because one that sharp that
can cut you too we’re not positive that the slides stripped another round and
loaded it into the chamber so we’re all about positive reassurance out here at
t1G you do something once it works 100% of the time what works on a percent of the
time is tapping the bottom of the magazine pulling to let go of the slide
realigning your sights pulling the trigger without disturbing that
relationship standby great alright there’s the type two
malfunction using immediate action to to clear it if you have any questions or
comments add them below hope to see you soon

  1. With regards to the stovepipe malfunction, is it possible that as the pistol cycled, that a round could still have been chambered while a stovepipe occurred? If so, by racking the slide, could you then possibly induce a double feed? Theoretically, I suspect the answers are yes. Realistically though I don't suspect they are likely. Curious to hear your thoughts. I like your rationale regarding clearing the stovepipe malfunction.

  2. The way I practice clearing jams is hit the range with Remington hollow points. Remington ammo is notoriously bad, I had a box of 50 of the 115gr HTP hollow points and got at least 6 FTFs through my CZ. I get the stuff because it's as cheap (if not cheaper than) ball ammo and I can practice tap-rack-bang. Never had a single Hornady, Federal, or Gold Dot JHP malfunction in my gun but that doesn't mean it's impervious to fault. Hope for the best, plan for the worst.

  3. I know that this method works,but won't rotating the gun so the port is facing down be better,thus letting gravity help clear it.Thats the method taught at Frontsight.

  4. Stovepipe solving showed here makes sense, I´ve always cleaned that with my support hand, and the gun has always fed the next round. But yeah, in a worst case scenario it´s possible that the next round won´t feed, or maybe the gun won´t go into battery.

    Tap rack it´s the universal solution for all no-gunsmith-need issues.

  5. Great video. I've done the type of drill by loading each other's magazines with some live rounds, some empty brass and a couple dummy rounds.
    We usually trust our equipment. We know when we press the trigger it's going to go bang. This drill introduces doubt. It is more difficult to get good hits when you anticipate you're going to have to imediately clear a malfunction. And this drill is great for making the clearing of malfunctions second nature.
