In video, a semi auto without exposed hammer is used. A 1911 type pistol would need a modified procedure.
Revolvers fail, too. I feel like I’m starting to sound like a broken record at this point, but I’ll probably keep bringing it up until people stop spreading misinformation about revolvers being “100% reliable.” In the video below, I describe yet another revolver failure I recently encountered. Two of them, actually. And I’m not talking about the kind of problems you can fix in a couple of seconds on the firing line. I mean, “put it in a box and mail it to the men with tools” kind of problems.

Body Cam footage. A bad guy stealing items. Think about what can happen.
Some Vital lessons:
- Hand in pocket.
- Action vs. Reaction.
- Medical First Aid – get trained.
- Think about how fast things can go wrong.
- Help is on the waaaay? What if that was you or your family member that had been shot? Would you be able to render medical aid?
When one of these events takes place it is imperative for us to learn from them should we hope to prevent or interdict the next one. Sadly, this is rarely done to a true operational level. It may be too soon to do this, but we have had three major events in the last three weeks. I do not think it is too soon. These points were brought to the discussion on my forum warriortalk.com by one of its members –
FACT 1: Shooter visited the site five days prior to the attack. This was probably a reconnaissance of the site. We know that both terrorists as well as “crazy people” have done this prior to their initiation of attack. Alternatively, he may not have decided to attack yet and was working up to it
LEARNING POINT: In today’s tech world ….
FACT 4: Shooter was wearing body armor (type unknown) and a helmet. Same situation in many other events.

November 9, 2017:
The Department of Homeland Security Bulletin advises of continuing threats to National Security. The information is a reminder of the threats that Americans face. However, the Bulletin is sanitized. The Islamic Based Terrorist threat is not referenced. Instead, the term “homegrown terror” is used. Such word games deflect from the grave threat that America faces from the Islamic / Sharia threat, as well as communists, and others. By branding the source of this terrorist ideology as being “grown in America”, the element of causation is diverted to America itself. The true enemies who seek to destroy America are given a free pass to continue with their objective, the destruction of America. Sharia law is a direct threat to America, our Constitution, and Bill of Rights. Meanwhile, our Government continues to import terrorist individuals. The invasion is being conducted right under our noses, and the enemies are being placed throughout the United States. Activation, the time and place, is left for the enemies to decide. And you, and your children, are the targets.
Be alert and vigilant. Be prepared to defend your family. And yes, that means lawful use of firearms for defense. Moreover, get some basic medical training.
The terrorists, the enemy within, are:
Targeting public places and events.
They make use of easy to use tools. For example: use of vehicle ramming, small arms, straight-edged blades or knives, homemade explosives, and poisons or toxins.
They use battlefield experiences to pursue new technologies and tactics, such as unmanned aerial systems and chemical agents.
They are targeting commercial aviation and air cargo, including with concealed explosives.
Of course, Islamic terrorists, and others, have for years promoted “Lone wolf” attacks. But, it is routine that when an attack happens, we, the “sheeple”, are told that the attackers “motive” is unknown, and that no known link to a formal terrorist group has been found. This sounds like the same type of propaganda ministry that Hilter used to lie to the Germans about how well the invasion of Russia was going during WWII.
