I Hope This is Satire: The "Gross" Motor Skill Reload

Designing for weapons manipulation for gross motor skills is a hard thing to do. Firearms designers fret over trying to put as much gross motor movement in weapon manipulation as possible. One of the biggest challenges is magazine changes, where small buttons reign galore.

Here’s where Firepower United comes in. He has posted up a video that I desperately hope is satire on the “operator’ fine motor skill reloads often taught for modern MSRs. He demonstrates how to reload a rifle without using ones lands to hit any of the controls.

The results are… interesting and highly entertaining.

    What a crock. Post that its an april fools Joke when its an April Fools joke so it doesn't waste our time when doing serious searches. I appreciate a good joke as much as anyone else, but there are times when I don't have time to deal with them

    According to you guys, learning to rack a pistol slide on your boot sole is a "joke" too.
