    yes it's real, and the point of it is to just show off.

    I'm thinking a light spring.

    'Cause maybe a full mag would have more pressure also. (eta)

    A one handed man might find use. But it may not work on all handguns.

    Yes, it is real. There is a member of ARFCOM who has demonstrated it WITH OTHER PEOPLES' SIDEARMS at the range. I believe Rob Latham or one of the pro shooters does it, too.

    The trick is to keep the trigger forward when you drop the slide, and to make the back and forth arm motion BRISKLY.

    It doesn't hurt to have a skill like that if you end up in a situation where you can only use one hand. If I was limber/strong enough to do it, I would practice being able to do it with either hand.

    There is an ARFCOM member who ended up in a shoot out while he and several friends were being robbed. He ended up wounded in BOTH hands and almost was unable to return fire because he was having trouble depressing the grip safety on his 1911 after his hand was hit.

    Being able to reload one-handed CAN possibly save your life.

    The ARFCOM member who did at the range borrowed a couple of people's Glocks and demonstrated it again with firearms he had no way to adjust anything in beforehand, because people thought he doctored his sidearm to do it.

    Well, during a match, I guess it would mainly be beneficial if you broke your arm in the middle of your round.


    I guess.

    EDIT TO ADD: Oh. That video. I guess the shooter did it to show off maybe. I don't know if the whole match everyone was doing it or not.

    I tried to do it with an empty mag in my glock 19.

    I only got the slide to move back about a half an inch.

    Think it was a great first try, but I have lots of practice to go before I can call myself ninja.

    the way i was taught was to stick the gun between your knees, use your now empty hand to grab the spare mag and insert it in the gun, then with the gun back in your good hand you hook the rear sight on your belt and rack the slide that way. that's why i don't like those low profile style sights on my carry pistols.
