Slide Forward question
« on: January 12, 2015, 07:15:10 PM »
Hi Everyone,

Just looking for some clarification on the Slide Forward command at the end of the stage.
 
Is a shooter allowed to manually lower the slide or should the slide stop be pushed down allowing the slide to slam forward ???

Thanks for your time & help.
All the best.

You can manually lower your slide but you must pull the trigger and drop the hammer.

Yep, you can ease the slide down to prevent possible battering caused by dropping slide on empty chamber.  Just don't ease the hammer down - let it fall.  I usually will ease my slide down to protect the action work I have done.

Good luck, GJ

Thanks  Guys. I knew about the making sure you pull the trigger to drop the hammer just wasn't sure about the slide.
All the best.
