Press checks are needed because they look cool in the movies.....especially when press-checking a Glock sounds like your cocking a Single Action Army Colt. :mrgreen:
And you can do it multiple times so it sounds even cooler and really shows you mean business. :mrgreen:

Re: Help me understand something

I've never understood how the gun goes off when cleaning it. You should always take the mag out and clear the weapon before ever sticking your monkey digits in the trigger guard if it requires a pull of the trigger for take down. But to a post up above I have developed routines and practices. That's why it's in a separate room when being cleaned or taken down but to be honest it's not comepletely necessary if you think about it. I won't change my habits but I'm making a point.

Help me understand something

I have seen over and over and over and over again people saying when you clean your gun or simply take it apart you should have your ammunition and magazine in a complete separate part of the house than you are. Now before you jump on me and try and tell me why you think it is and act like I do not do that I do. I have always been taught to keep them totally separated. But if you think about it why is it necessary? If we truly believe that our guns will not go off unless the trigger is pulled why do we have the mind set of the magazine or just one round will all of a sudden jump into the gun and fire? If you set the mag and rounds to the side on the other end of the bench I am pretty sure nothing's going to happen unless you Consciously pick it up and load it. Now if you don't realize you are doing that maybe you need to reevaluate some things. But just curious on yalls thoughts.
