The Following is from:  Spartan Cops comment: Although the following material references use by police officers, the same concepts apply to lawful citizens who must defend themselves against a deadly attack. Please note that the procedure / method shown in the video doesn't work with a 1911 style handgun (due to the hammer being located at the back of the slide).

"Video (below): Firearms Training for Contact Shots

September 11th, 2009 by Scott

Most firearms tactics and techniques tend to focus on having distance. Distance is your friend if you are a good shot and your opponent is not.

In the comments of Officer Created Jeopardy, Jerry reiterates this by mentioning the common error of officers getting too close to suspects with their firearm out.

But those tactics only work if the officer has knowledge of the suspect being armed before making an approach. In many cases, officers donít have that information. The officer makes a routine contact with a person that eventually escalates into into a lethal encounter. At that point the suspect is usually within reach. There might even be a struggle over a gun. It is possible that the officer could have to take a contact shot.

Many officers havenít been exposed to contact shot training though. A problem that can easily occur during contact shots is the slide can go out of battery from pushing the barrel against the suspect. This disengages the trigger and the gun wonít function.

Scott Lichtenberg, a police firearms instructor, explains a technique that resolves this issue in the short video below. The video has three parts:

  1. How to perform the technique
  2. How to teach the technique, and
  3. A live fire demonstration of it.

What It Feels Like

When I first saw this technique, I was a little skeptical about it. Holding on to the slide of the gun was completely different than anything I had done before. It looked painful and dangerous. After trying it and then practicing it a few times, I realized it isnít bad and doesnít hurt. Holding the slide is comparable to holding a baseball bat when it hits a ball.

Final Thoughts

Officers may never need this technique but if they do being exposed to it and practicing it a few times at the range can make a critical difference in itís effectiveness. Try it out and add another tool to your toolbox. "
