Rod Ryan, president and CEO of Storm Mountain, demonstrates a failure to fire drill. It requires tapping the magazine and racking the slide. How you rack the slide however can save you time and get you back on target faster.
Mr. Ryan spent more than 20 years combined, active and reserve, in the U.S. military as well as law enforcement. In 1996, he opened Storm Mountain near Keyser, West Virginia. It has grown into a world-renowned training facility for millitary, law enforcement, counter-terrorism personnel and civilians. It offers comprehensive firearms courses on a regular basis from a highly experienced staff. On-site lodging is available.
I recently took a firearms course there and learned more in three days than all year shooting and watching videos by myself. I asked Mr. Ryan if I could film a few of the exercises we practiced and he enthusiastically agreed.
This is the fourth of a series of helpful videos that will be featured on Guns.com in the coming weeks. Let us know what you think.
