This piece is in no way an
instructional video covering all aspects of the semi-auto
handgun. However, it is one that will be useful to many of our
readers. Almost everyday, I get at least one email asking for
help and advice on operating the slide of a semi-automatic
pistol. Some designs are easier to operate than others, but for
those with weak or arthritic hands, even the easier designs can
be difficult, if not done properly. I always try to explain the
technique for operating the slide using the strength of both
hands, and not just the thumb and forefinger of the shooter’s
weakest hand, as is often taught. Instead of trying to explain
it in words as I usually do, I think that this video tutorial
will be most helpful to those who have difficulty operating the
slide of a modern semi-automatic handgun.
