    OK, I see him slam the gun down on the mag to load it, but then it looks like he just flicks the gun back toward his shoulder and then flicks it forward. ???

    The only thing I can come up with is that it's a race gun....so he probably shoots super light recoil loads....so he probably has a super light mainspring. Must be light enough that he can use the momentum of the gun to rack the slide. Pretty cool though.

    That's one nifty bit of showmanship, but what the___ was his score? And can he do it under pressure?

    Don't take this as a put-down, its just that I'm jealous.

    He's not dragging it on his pec or anything, right? Its just momentum? Impressive.

    This has caught the attention of some of the gun blogs this week.

    here is a blog with some force and acceleration numbers.

    Possible, but not probable.

    Its a Glock 35, so its got that much heavier slide. Add a recoil spring with thousands of rounds in it, definitely possible.

    he's competed here in Ga. and yes, its a hard technique to copy. one local here stated he damn near threw out his shoulder trying to mimic it. His gun is a highly modded gun, but same local says the guy can do it with any factory auto.
