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

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

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.

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

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

NPC : 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.

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

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

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

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.

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

Raven Drakearud : I would like to add something here*Clears throat* DO NOT TRY TO GRAB A ROBBERS HANDGUN, You will NOT move faster then most can pull a trigger Best case you get shot in the arm, Do not fight you stuff is not worth your life, And if you get kidnapped Taken style, Its better to wait when you captors are distracted, Leave and call for help, Do NOT go for the shotgun and try to get out with a hail of gun fire, It Wont Work.

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

Valk : How about a desert eagle?

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.

Warren Peace : I would've thought the recoil of the round would be more powerful than a grip, cool!

KyranSparda : Great tip for close quarter combat.

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.

firas gasih : have tride it withe 9 mil 40 & 45 auto and a 9 +P+ and nothing hapend the slied recoul is almoust not ther

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

H3avyweight King : great way to get away with murder

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

Robert Butler : Buy a gun save a life!!!

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!

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

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

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

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

Duke Damage : It didn't hurt his hand!...but he is Russian tho, enough said.

delinquentJACK : Excellent video and awesome information, but I would still highly advise against it unless you find yourself in a situation where it's you're best option to take.

Jeremy Nichols : very cool did not know you could do that and not get scratched up from the slide great vid

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

ShirkActual : What nationality are you?

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

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

max karmelich : I learned something valuable here.

Dextruider : *Myth BUSTED*

Barka Dog : Why am I seeing channels related to guns nowadays?

Your Average Otaku : I am seriously confused

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

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

Praise The Lord : Meanwhile in Soviet Russia...

AL NIK : Excellent video!

Ogram Brat : Try that with my black powder revolver lol

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

James Sawley : Some videos don't need words.

keegan773 : Very interesting as a last resort.

Proverbs 16:4 KJV : Those are krav maga moves

TheVineRhyme : Contrary to popular belief, I don't think this would actually injure the gun unless it's very poorly made. But it does play well into gun self-defense and it will prevent the gun from reloading a new round, which effectively stops any further discharges from the weapon...excellent video!
