When the gun stops working, we need to get it working as fast as possible.
Those programmed actions that repair, or refresh the handgun are called Immediate Actions.
Most people who use handguns train two of the three Immediate Actions: the Emergency Reload and the Soft Malfunction, but the real challenge is the Hard Malfunction.
There are many situations that can cause the Hard Malfunction: double feeds, over-expanded casings, and stove pipes, but no matter which one we come across, the process to fix it is generally the same, and almost universally NOT practiced.
Check out this week's Drill of the Week and learn how you can practice the Hard Malfunction and learn to remediate that problem while maintaining 100% defense.
