I am not sure if it was posted before or where, but last night I noticed this new posting by Hickock45 and thought many here might be interested.


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all
Seasons Greetings

Another great video from Hickok45. I like how he mentioned what the Glock manual says the minimum ammo it needs. When you do buy from Wal-Mart, you get what you get! My 4 Gen Glock 23 Eats all Wal-Mart ammo. Some times the brass does come towards my head. LOL

Interesting...

Not sure how many rounds he shot, but one failure isn't too bad... Interesting that he normally shoots 147gr 9mm FMJ...

Great video!

I wish he would Rack the slide instead of using the Slide Stop to chamber a round.

He is a Maste Shooter in my book!

Great range set up!
i asked hickok45 the same question . about using the slide stop lever . and he had mentioned it doesn`t matter . but he usually racks it but had said its a glock . thatz what the jedi master had told me .

It does matter.
One Fights the way they Train!
One should Train and Train if one needs to fight they have a better chance of winning the Fight!
Just saying that is the way I was trained and the way I have been training others!
But, He has a great set up. Oh, oh I love everyone.

what if your other hand was injured or something , and your telling me that you shouldn`t rack the slide by using the release lever ??? lol lol lol wow . i understand that i wouldn`t use the lever to release the slide if there wasn`t a magazine loaded . but yes to using the lever if there was one already loaded in the gun . to me it seems faster to use the release lever , then racking it it with my other hand . merry x-mas !

I was trained as an LEO.
Major musle groups work the best when problems strike.
Small mulse groups do not work very well or at all in stress times.
We and now I instruct other to put the rear sight above the belt and push down hard.
That will rack the slide and chamber a round. In case one had wounded or not able.
Releasing the slide stop left-handed can not be done with the pistol in the left hand.
Not trying to offend anyone here. Just my training and why.

why do all that when your thumb is like thosands of an inch close to the release lever ?????? doesn`t make any sense to me . but hey if thats what you teach well more power to you . but i totally understand what you are saying that can work for a lefthand user . but what happens if you are not wearing a belt ??? & sorry i`m a righty and the way i will do it is the way you don`t like it , with the release lever . merry x-mas !

Lawenforcement has video of cops who under attack can not use a decocker lever on a pistol that is larger in size than an extended slide stop on a glock.

The main point is that if you are going to use a pistol for self-defence the small muscle memory groups will fail to get the job done when you need them to work.

Racking the slide is the major muscle group that can be trained to work under stress where the small muscle groups can not be trained.

Your point Is good what if no belt I teach to use anything like, a heel on your shoe, sole of the shoe, bumper, chrome on a car, door frame or an edge of a table. Anything near will save the day.

In addition I teach to carry an off-side knife that can be pulled and opened weak hand (non-gun-hand) if your gun goes down or the bad guy is trying to remore it from your holster. In that case one puts his gun hand on the bad guys had and holds his hand on the gun while pulling the knife and stabbing the bad guy so he does not get the gun and shoot the officer. A lot of this is for open carry persons.

I hope this works if not please let me know.

Your life is all important to me. Dam the bad guy he can just go to 7734!

Good Luck and be safe.
