I saw a movie where a guy was holding a pistol in each hand, and at the same time, performed a one handed press check on both. I didn't think that was even possible. Can anyone here do that?

Remember, it is a movie. But i can do it right handed as well. Of course, Seraph is a program written within the matrix, so he doesn't really count as human.

That scene is the reason I've been searching for a Browning BDM. Very slim carry piece

I can with a 1911 or beretta 96.

I'd be too afraid to try that with a loaded gun (I saw the movie). Even tried it, with one hand, using an unloaded gun (an FNP9). If you fumble it, there's way too much temptation to try to catch the gun as it falls to the floor. Most people would instinctively try to catch it. In situations like this, a finger invariably finds its way inside the triggerguard Recipe for disaster. It was a cool-looking manuever for a movie, but not so smart for real life.

:wow: That is a very stupid way to check and see if there is one in the pipe. Anything other than removing the magazine and locking the slide back is unsafe IMO.

I can and have done it with my H&K's (USP & P2000) and my FNPs.

I have also seen it taught in certain circles during training scenarios centered around wounds that immobilize one hand/arm.

I can't remember what professional shooter it was doing the video (Rob Leatham?) but he said, "Press checks are free. Use them!" Guns & Ammo Network.

You always need to make certain there's one in the chamber if carrying defensively. Never trust LCI's, etc. Visual evidence is the one way to know for sure. I always double check by pulling the slide rearward slightly to ensure a loaded round was picked up from the magazine in my G26. And when I carried a 1911 I always performed the 100-year-old press check. Probably the reason the spring plug is knurled-
