MY agency recently purchased M/P .40 for our admin and are going to be traing with them shortly. Our current duty weapon has trijicon sights. THe trijicons make it very easy to rack the slide one handed by hooking you belt or holster. THis is done for practicee loadingr clearing a jam if you only have one hand. How is this done on the guns with Novak sights? The Novaks pretty much just slip off of the belt or holster. Is the only way to accomplish this is to hook the front sight and push down? I would think a gun designed for Law Enforcment would be made so its easy to manipulate the slide one handed.[/b]

Sounds like tiral and error time?



I thought most departments get them with night sights? They ARE Trij's.

If you have a decent belt on, you can do it with the front sight. Not the safest thing in the world, but if it's that or die, it's worth a shot. It's easier to use the front sight safely offf a table or other hard surface with an edge, or off a boot/shoe heel. On combat boots, the bit that is stiched to the sole that you can see works fine and you aren't pointing the gun at anything but the ground or heel of your boot.



Using the front sight isn't as easy as using a rear sight, but it works.



The 10-8 sights and burwell sights work much better for this than the stock ones.

Front sight is what we teach, or whatever else you can come up with, improvise/overcome/adapt.

Self serving post here. Try my new sight from Ameri Glo. The BOWIE TACTICAL sight was designed by me and one of the design features was for this issue. I teach this block of instruction at TDI. I have used the rear sight for years. Just for gosh sakes practice dry or with snap caps first and keep your fingers way away from the triger area.

There are a few documented situations where this has saved a life so work hard on chaging the sight.

Our M&P's have the novak style night sights on them and we used the front sight on the back of the holster and if that didn't work we could take a knee and then use the front sight on the heel of a shoe or boot, worked pretty well.
