As JFN posted, we were having problems with the statement: "Safe reloads after any type of malfunction are legal." That statement has been DELETED in the new Handbook. It has caused many inconsistent calls and I will admit that I have made some of them. In an effort to be "kindler/gentler" we created serious problems with consistency. It was NEVER the intention to allow reloads from other than slidelock EXCEPT when the slidelock fails and the shooter needs to reload without changing position. I think that is made clear in the new Handbook. We appreciate your patience with us as a Committee as we try to forsee the unintended consequences of our decisions, but this time we missed the possibilities.
