Just a question to throw out there while I am recovering from shoulder surgery. I normally carry a 1911 or a Springfield XD in a .45. My question to stir the pot ( since I can't pratice it myself right now ) is which is faster to accomplish a reload from slide lock, use the slide release or slingshot it? I have seen both and like the ole caliber use I have heard the pro's and con's of each. BTW I have size 15 fingers, thick but short so the sling shot is usually best for me.
