Title: What's the call
Post by: Medicine Creek Johnny on September 18, 2015, 07:04:29 PM
Shooter fires 4 rounds then drops the magazine. Realizes he still has a round in the camber and fires it at the correct target. He then inserts a new mag with the slide down on an empty chamber. Minor safety or no call?
Thanks MCJ

Minor safety, why would you think otherwise?

All reloads shall be from slide lock, no “tactical reloads.” You may not reload the
pistol with a round in the chamber. (MSV) You may NOT reload a single round in
the 1911 by placing it in the chamber and then closing the slide. (MSV) All
ammunition must be loaded from a magazine. All reloads shall be from slide lock.
(Failure to do so, MSV) THE ONLY EXCEPTION to the slide-lock rule is if after
firing all the rounds in the magazine the slide lock fails and the shooter needs to
reload without moving, one may do so without locking the slide back before
inserting the new magazine
