Thank you for the birthday wish Higgy. My son is 47 and he has no plans to get married....likes his expensive Jeeps and clothes to much to share with a wife. My grandfather and father came here from Czechoslovakia. They, myself and my son were the only males of each generation, so the family name ends with him.Afternoon.........very nice day out there. Finally got up to 84.
Went out this morn to pick up the granddaughter- so we are chillin....she and Agatha are making brownies now.
Happy birthday Mk7_mech. I'm close to you- I''ll be 74 in Dec. I have one older male cousin by about 6 mo, and 1 brother. I have 2 sons and he has one.....and that's all the males- all in their 40's, except my only grandson (14). It looks like it may be up to him to keep the family name alive.
Wish I could get motivated enough to get up early to make the trip from Gainesville to Jacksonville to Academy, but I just hate to think of fighting the traffic to get there around 9AM.Morning.......its raining. Been raining most of the night and no sign of letting up. Old Nick is peeing on us big time. Started to run out to Academy this morn to look for ammo, but it was pouring- so I decided not to go. Probably would have hit pay-dirt- no one else would be out in a downpour. Oh well.....may try Friday?
Oh I do use the slide release to chamber a round. My fear is trying to clear a round lodged in the chamber. If I can not rack it, I can not clear it to chamber another round. My CM9 was almost like an M&P EZ from day one. No problem what so ever.Yeah both my CW9 and CT380 are tuff to rack.
I rarely ever attempt to rack the slide to chamber a round- I lock it back then hit the release.
Seems like I may had struggles with that back when I first got these guns....but gave up in favor of using slide release. Seems like someone on this forum pointed out to me that the manual that came with my gun recommended using slide release to chamber a round.
Yep on the Kahr recommendation in the owner's manual to use the slide release. I primarily use it to chamber a round in all of my semi autos for a long time & especially in timed qualifications. If you need to rack the slide to clear a round in a stress situation, you probably won't have a problem doing it from a physical effort standpoint...think of the action as an opposing quick push / pull speed movement as opposed to a strength action in operation...Oh I do use the slide release to chamber a round.
