    Being tired of seeing medical associations that simply parrot Brady/VPC et al., I'm refreshed to find that the Foundation for Spinal Cord Injury Prevention gives "The Rules" and about 35 other generally good rules like not climbing trees with loaded guns or not using your scope as a spyglass.

    I'm especially impressed with THIS bit of firearm safety advice from them at http://www.fscip.org/GunSafety.html :
    :cool:

    Does it say anything about carrying a handgun in a small-of-the-back holster? :D

    The back up piece is good advice ..... only prob generally is where to carry it .... :(

    Best I have managed usually is keeping a spare mouse gun in a pants pocket, or maybe fanny pack. Otherwise it has to be snubby on hip .. while main piece in sho rig. Add to that a paddle mag pouch sometimes with two mags ... and one starts to get somewhat ''laiden''!

    Will a salute suffice?

    Or maybe a bow?!

    What about this one?

    "14. Avoid trying to catch a live round (while unloading a semiautomatic pistol) by cupping your hand around the ejection port while retracting the slide; doing so may result in an accidental discharge."

    I haven't heard this one before. I would think that the most you are are risking is a crushed case. Am I wrong?

    Skunkape,

    I think that #14 comes from the potential for fumbling the firearm while trying to eject a round into the hand. The most positive grip on a handgun doesn't allow you to do this easily. Should you "fail" to execute this you can fumble the round back into, or nearly into, the chamber with the slide falling into place. I actually had this happen once and decided that juggling loaded guns was for Vegas and not this ol' boy from Tennessee.

    That one skunk is I think very much down to the weapon and proficiency with same.

    I found that when I practiced this originally (finger off trigger, of course) .. there was an easy tendency to keep the body still and move the gun so as it could point very unsafe. It needs IMO a rotation of body to right whilst bringing left hand over to manouver the slide and gun rotated 90º clockwise .. if the grip is good and slide taken back firmly, the round should fall into cupped hand, no probs.

    If extractor has failed to pick round up then careful closure and retry .... or total change of position to inspect from above.

    Never caused any damage to a round this way, and if gun always in safe direction .. the paramount rule with this approach ... no one gets hurt.
