Clearing Handgun Malfunctions

I found this nice video over on YouTube on clearing handgun malfunctions.  Even if you have been around guns for awhile, this is a good refresher about what to do when something goes wrong.

What you don’t want to happen is have a malfunction and freeze when you most need your weapon.  I will keep hammering on the need to train on your weapon.  You can practice recover from a malfunction with dry fire at home.  If you use ammunition, make sure you practice on the range.

One topic that he mentions it racking the slide instead of manipulating the slide release.  I guess I just learned to use the slide release and am comfortable with it.  Whatever you do, just make sure you practice it.

Let us know in the comments if you have any other tips for dealing with handgun malfunctions.
