One Inch Punch To Chamber A Pistol

    Fieldcraft LLC shared this video of Tyler chambering a Glock by simply punching out fast. Similar to Bruce Lee’s infamous One Inch Punch, Tyler punches outward as he draws his Glock. The inertia of the slide keeps the slide from moving forward as he pushes the frame forward. Then as he slows down, the recoil spring has a chance to catch up and push the slide forward thereby loading and chambering a round. I am reminded of the IDF method of loading a pistol, since they carry chamber empty. They too punch out but they use their support hand to grasp the slide. As they punch out, their support hand holds back the slide and then they release it to load the pistol. They should adopt this loading method to help save them an extra step of having to grab the slide to load the round.
