9mm Hand Gun Operation & Safety : Additional Information about Jammed Handguns


Now assest. Okay, I have live rounds. There’s
not one jammed in the chamber. I assested it; it’s good to go. I’m ready to continue
fire. I drop it and now I’m on target and I fired. So, tap, rack bang, or tap, rack,
assest, bang is what you want to do to perform a malfunction clearing on this weapon. Again,
no live rounds. Physical and visual, no live rounds. Tap, rack, bang. If you have asked
for a stovepipe, if you get a misfire or the weapon doesn’t feed properly. Sometimes it’ll
try to feed 2 rounds in at once and you’ll get 2 rounds jammed up in there. At a point
like that, those sometimes can be difficult to do to the clear, but at that point when
that happens if you visually see that, you don’t have to bother with the tap. All you
want to do is drop that magazine to take the tension. You will never be able to get those
2 rounds that are almost side by side in that small space. You won’t be able to get them
out until you relive the tension that are on those rounds from the magazine. If you
see 2 rounds jammed in there, automatically drop that magazine, which will give you room
to play to pull the slide to the rear. It may take you a couple times to pull it and
let it go in order to clear the jam. Now, one round flew out. I don’t see the other
round, but I know there were 2 in there. With the weapon in a point in a safe direction,
grab it, lock it to the rear, turn it over, point it down range. Okay, physically, yeah
there’s a round, or physically, no there isn’t a round. It fell out the bottom of the magazine
well, which once I do a visual and physical check of that weapon and make sure it’s clear,
make sure that barrel there’s nothing lodged in there. That’s my performance of a clearing
technique for a malfunction.
