BADALEX : Do you need to have Polenar Tactical hands to do this though?

Ballistic Turtle : Just wanted to thank the guys at Polenar for uploading all they do. I often use this video for training purposes with new shooters as a part of the introductory phase to guns. Showing people who are new to firearms that they are not handheld planet destroyers like in the movies is a good way to boost confidence about recoil fears before ever holding a gun. Also there seems to be some confusion about the purpose of this video. HOpefully this will help: This video is not primarily about the tactical aspect of putting your enemies semi-auto pistol out of battery. It is more of a proof of concept with regards to the recoil not being strong enough to harm you should you find yourself holding on to the slide of a semi-auto pistol as it's fired. A large percentage of the comments seem to imply that this video is somehow instructing you to grab a bad guys gun and put it out of battery like in some of the more advanced training scenarios. While that is possible given the right person, place, distance, reaction, speed, etc etc etc. It is ill-advised unless you have had extensive training and practice doing it. This is just a video showing that it's possible to hold on to a gun while it's being fired and not take any damage to your hand. Read the description if you don't believe me for some reason.

Mitya Tarasov : If somebody grabbed my gun then it would be sexual assault.

ARPHOTO : Could be lifesaving in a situation where directing the gun away from yourself is possible. As long as that first shot misses when you redirect the weapon, your attacker may not realize another round isn't chambered.

Guy Shepard : Now put your finger in the barrel like that screwy wabbit. Eheheheheh.

Lex : Don't try this on a revolver. Your hand will literally blow up if it's on the cylinder gap.

mini hoov : On pistols with dropping barrels such as the m1911 and Glock, you can push on the front of the gun to where the barrel drops, the safety mechanism won't let the gun fire

Mark Steven Luber : Do not, I repeat, do not attempt with a revolver. Revolvers generally discharge a large amount of gas out of the gap in between the cylinder and barrel. This will blow your fingers off.

Arcuz : Try doing that with a .50 Desert Eagle.

Gun Nut : Now do it with .50 AE

faffaflunkie : I call that one "The Crazy Ivan".

Valk : How about a desert eagle?

axel samperi : wow it would really suck if they have a revolver lol

circuscase : don't do it with a revolver....

Josh Mango : ive done this. would never try in real life

James Patterson : Can you show a video showing the same thing but with a revolver? Where you use the skin between the thumb and first finger to block the hammer.

H3avyweight King : great way to get away with murder

ManOf TheMinute : I learned this fro. A cop buddy, he was shown this technique because it creates a malfunction in the weapon (fte) so the bad guy can only get off one round without clearing it, that buys you time to draw your weapon or go for cover.

THE REALSPEED LSX MUSTANG : cool, its one of those things i have always wandered about but never wanted to try lol

KyranSparda : Great tip for close quarter combat.

TheJonesChannel11 : Just pull the slide back a little and your enemy might not have the ability to fire.

S.C.P. dokumentumok : Wow

Koyote Tan : Awesome again guys! That slide stopping stuff turns the semi-auto gun into a single shot gun.

Dino Daquin : hahahah its looks so easy, in real life you get shot

rafael502 : Anyone else come here after the Captain America CivilWar Superbowl trailer?

ShirkActual : What nationality are you?

ken URO : good work, thanx ,would not have thought it would be that easy, thanx again

Greg Foster : Question? When I was in the Corps we had a diarming technique for the 1911 that if the barrel was grabbed front on, with palm over the barrel's opening, and pushed to the rear, the weapon would not fire. IS that still taught? Does that work with other SAs?. Note, we were also told to expect a shot through the palm if not executed right, but at least we'd have the gun.

AmokBR : Cool, I have asked myself this question whenever I've seen these disarming techniques. I think the only concern is that if the gun's been fired recently you might get burned.

connor shaw : i was gonna try it but i dont wanna brake my gun haha

AL NIK : Excellent video!

Justin Miller : Are you shooting regular rounds, or just firing blanks?

Coda Scott : This is top notch stuff! Thank you!

A S : Do the same with a revolver... ;)

steelmesh : Will it work with stronger rounds like 10mm auto?

Sedan57Chevy : This is amazing you guys, thank you so much for uploading. This was actually educational, glad I found it on one of my random youtube searches!

Ogram Brat : Try that with my black powder revolver lol

acergy09 : thanks for the video...who knows you can get into situation that you may use that technique...good job bro...

Praise The Lord : Meanwhile in Soviet Russia...

ALEXcontactcombat : has been done for ever. done it myself several times. 

James Sawley : Some videos don't need words.

Frank Rock : try doing that with a glock. you cant shoot it.

Karl S : wait, so if you hinder the gun from rechambering, you won't be able to continue shooting? Who would have thought

Proverbs 16:4 KJV : Those are krav maga moves

whowantstogetgoodido : Very good knowledge. Does this work the same with all pistols? Like striker fired and whatnot?

Frédéric RIOUT : Mmm...guess it can be difficult to do with a Desert Eagle!

Georg Buscha : haha, thats brilliant! No idea it was so easy!

rallyfan555 : What caliber was being fired?  Did it require a lot of grip strength to restrain the slide?

max karmelich : I learned something valuable here.

roboticbulldog : Very interesting. Thanks for posting this
