    Press check hell

    I had never seen the now not recommended press check. It makes me cringe just seeing Larry demonstrate it. Never seen that done, hope to never see it done. How was that ever a thing? Any of you ever taught that method?

    I've never seen the no longer recommended press check; it appears incredibly dangerous.

    Neither have I. How did anyone ever think that was a bright idea?

    Can't watch it at work, but is it that "pinch" method with the thumb in the trigger guard?

    That's it. I've heard of it, but never saw it taught or actually done on a live fire range.

    I teach "nothing on the support hand goes forward of the trigger guard when conducting a press check."

    Glad to see we are in agreement and I'm not losing my mind. One does not need to be a DEVGRU Delta ninja to realize what a terrible method of press checking that is. I'm amazed that was ever a thing. LAV stopped recommending it after seeing two guys have an AD apparently. I wonder when that was.

    I think it was the original military training method. Terrible idea. Yes I have seen it done once or twice.

    Pinch check. Definitely old school and not something I’d do on a loaded gun.

    You can also do it with long slide Glocks
