    Maybe that's why/how he wears them out so quick.

    Doing it once in a while won't hurt a thing, that doesn't mean it's not stupid.

    Not saying it will break a 1911 but it is rough on a good trigger job..

    So those of you worried about the slide closing on an empty chamber have no problems with the small explosion that occurs repeatedly in the same area and generates far more stress on mechanics of the gun?

    From the two SOG episodes I've seen, poor firearms handling seems to be a contractual obligation. :dunno:

    The explosion is contained in a locked breach. The slamming closed on an empty chamber causes the hammer to bounce on the sear and can ruin a nice trigger job..

    I know its been all of a day since I racked the slide of my 1911, but when I did I'm fairly positive when the slide went back into battery the hammer stayed cocked. maybe my gun i defective? should the hammer fall when the slide goes forward?

    Seriously people stop spouting crap you read online.

    Never said the hammer would fall. I said the hammer bounces on the sear. Not bounces off the sear. Its not something I read, its some I was told by a guy I've shot with many times by the name of John Jardine. I think he knows a little about 1911's

    Whether it is damaging or not, I always learn about someone when I see them do it.

    Not read on line, told to me personally by Ted Yost, Jason Burton, Dave Ercikson and most recently in a class with Larry Vickers. I think any one of these guys know a little bit more about the fire control parts geometry of these guns than the rest of us combined. Likewise this info was imparted by the instructors at Springfield Armory's 1911 Armorer Class and Colt Factory 1911 Armorer Class.

    i think that the sons of guns people have this energy field that surrounds them that drops everyone's (including them) IQ by about 75.

    Yeah, but what if it is just a plain old out of the box Mil-Spec with a 6+ pound trigger?
    I doubt it would hurt anything.

    Even if it was the most expensive custom 1911, ol Uncle Ted has the cash to have it fixed or replaced without batting an eye.
