This is a little practiced technique, but one that’s necessary to know competently. Sadly most of what’s taught here is stupidly dangerous (this is too important, and I’m too old, to be PC about this). My article on the subject, showing a good technique developed by Gary Klugiewicz, is over at Officer.com today. (As I write this, it’s already gotten one comment from someone who either didn’t read the article, or doesn’t or can’t understand the issue.)
BTW – that’s Scott Conti of SPDtool on the left and our friend, local PO Ed Cialek, on the right.
