“…is it possible to hold a gun’s slide when it’s fired so that you prevent a new round from entering the chamber?”
It seems that a lot of people think that if you grab the slide and fire the pistol it will seriously cut you or even break your fingers.
To show everyone that it can be done without losing any of your fingers we decided to film it
As you can see from the video, YES it is possible to hold a gun slide to prevent it from cycling and not get your hand hurt.
This video is not a “how to” for defense against a handgun. Things shown in this video can be dangerous and can result in a serious injury or death.
