    Bingo. How much effort is it to rack your slide an extra time or two? Virtually none. Cheap insurance if you ask me.

    End of watch 1911 clearing at as described by a marine
    at a small arms display on the hanger deck of carrier JFK during a port visit:
    1. Drop magazine.
    2. Stick finger into mag well to verify absence of magazine.(*)
    3. Lock slide back.
    4. Stick finger through ejection port into chamber to verify absence of round.(*)
    5. Drop slide.
    6. Fire test shot into box of sand bolted to deck.
    Seems thorough enough that I bet the pistol almost never fires.

    (*) Alleged by someone else to work even at midnight on Guadalcanal. Not that it seems a time and venue placing a premium on unloaded sidearms.

    Most lethal force encounters are in a low-light scenario. Always have tactile confirmation in addition to visual and you're doubleplus safe.

    Like my JHS metal shop teacher used to say,
    "you feel better than you look".
    (Eyeballing for rough spots that need to be filed smooth
    can't compare to running your finger over the workpiece).
    =====
    I tried getting a photo of our AR-556's muzzle flash during the last partial solar eclipse
    (only time we can shoot that caliber on any range at our club without the sun shining),
    but I was soloing with a tripod and shutter self-timer, and the pix never came out.

    Because I swear Ruger ought to include a bottle of suntan lotion with that rifle...

    Here's why "Mexican" carry is a bad idea:

    I am not familiar with the IDPA safety officer procedures, however, the USPSA procedure is for the range officer to personally verify the chamber and magazine well is empty before giving the command "gun clear hammer down holster". This means a flashlight for the RO on a low light stage.

    This was a fail on the part of the shooter and the safety officer.

    My guess is that there's a little less meat in the meat section of the Buckeye Walmart...

    It's included with every Mosin Nagant M44 purchase. I thought it was oil for cleaning, but then shot it at night. Friend said thats not oil for the gun. Thats sun tan oil for your face. (not me or my friend in the picture)
