Another good example of how it can be a good idea in training sometimes to break down the process in to a few separate steps, work on improving those steps individually, then put it all back together.
Looks like a good way to train and not waste thousands of rounds of ammo.
I'll try this the next time I'm at the range.
I do that every time I go to the range. Excellent use of range time.
Sent from the mind of a genius. Forrealz.
Yup just today I was loading two rounds in three mags. And practicing changing mags and engaging the target again. Did stationary, moving back and side to side. Then I placed two mags on my tailgate, about 75ft away. Engage target with two, drop empty mag,RUN to truck grab fresh mag, RUN back to shooting position, reload, engage. ETC...
Was he using his slide release instead of racking back on the slide? I was always taught to rack it back because you shouldn't rely on fine motor skills in the heat of a fight...
... or am I missing something?
I agree, but on the flip side, it's all in how you train.
The fine motor skills argument has been thoroughly beat to death and is ultimately flawed. It's all in how you train. If you can pull a trigger, press a mag release button, you can operate a slide release lever. For those that aren't going to train much, true, racking a slide might be easier. Ultimately, it just is not that difficult, and one method offers decidedly faster performance (usually .5-1.0 seconds based on my measurements, and with students). Nothing wrong with racking a slide. One thing to consider is, in the same amount of time, you could potentially use the slide release lever and have an additional 1-3 rounds on target in the same amount of time it takes to the average person to rack the slide.

You're missing a lot.
Use the slide release. It's not any finer a motor skill than a good trigger pull, and it's faster than racking the slide.
I agree 100%. I have used the slide release method and slide rack. I can do both in force on force situations using simunitions. Other students have as well.
