Check Ya'self: The Thumb Check.

One of the best things to come from the recent, heated exchange regarding safety was an earnest question about a potentially life-saving technique called the "Thumb Check".

In the video below, Chris Kozell, member of Team WIILSHOOT and pupil of John Krupa, demonstrates the "Thumb check" during the "Load and Make Ready!" phase at a recent IDPA event. If you've ever been to a match with Kozy, you'll see that he does all of this automatically - proper instruction, followed by proper training, builds competence!
