Visa. Sorry, I had to do that! I use my firing hand.
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 2:09:13 PM EDT
It depends on the situation. If I'm shooting prone, sling nice and tight, I use my shooting hand. Most other times I use my non shooting hand.

Overnight on my AR charger, of course. Oh, shooting hand. Nick
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 2:14:26 PM EDT
Initially with my shooting hand. AFter that I just drop the bolt by hitting the bolt release with my non shooting hand.

I hit the bolt release. Either that or NULL. Is there a prize? Who's ahead?

At Thunder Ranch you are taught to use your non-shooting hand. This allows you to keep the rifle on your shoulder and ready during mag changes, tac reloads, etc. You can keep your shooting hand on the grip and ready to fire if necessary. It takes a little getting used too, but it is the best practice.

As a Lefty, Use my left hand, thumb and pointer finger. But you gotta love the Visa card reply and the charger base pic! Good humor guys, keep it up.

Non shooting. Middle and index finger. I was gonna say "Visa", but others beat me to it.[:D]

I set the AR down in the middle of a large grassy field. Then I go to the edge of the field, mount my steed, draw my saber, well, you get the idea. [rolleyes]

Anyone who was in the Corps in the last 20 years is going to do it with their shooting hand, you learn Inspection Arms long before you go to snapping in week.

Shooting hand. After that I just hit the bolt release. If I am ever in a situation were I am actually going to shoot at a person there will already be a round in the chamber and a full mag. Sgtar15

I use my teeth, so my hands never leave the weapon.

I just put one of these on the V-MATCH. Gonna get one for the Dissipator, too. MUCH better.
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 5:21:40 PM EDT
For the AR, I use the left hand for charging, changing mags, supporting the weapon and the bolt release. I don't remove my right hand from the grip of the weapon. Just a habit. Keep it in the strong hand as long as I can type of thinking. IMO. MM419

I never charge it, I just leave the bolt carrier locked back. just hit the bolt catch. (this is a joke if you dident know)
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 6:15:25 PM EDT
My AR fires from open bolt.
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 6:22:31 PM EDT
Shooting hand, although I usually only have to do it once a day. After that, it's the bolt release with the left thumb. Actually, sometimes I don't have to charge it at all, because I show up at a match with the open-bolt indicator inserted. I just drop that out, put in a mag, and hit the bolt release.
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 6:36:14 PM EDT
Visa, but my wife doesn't like it when I charge more than one at a time.
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 6:36:14 PM EDT
shooting hand, pointer and middle finger.
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 6:44:25 PM EDT
I find that if I leave the setting on "[u]stun[/u]" instead of "[u]kill[/u]" it will go longer between charges.....[;)]

Shooting hand. I'm right-handed but left-eyed, so I have to shoot left-handed. It makes things kind of weird, but an AR is a lot less weird than trying to use a bolt-action rifle efficiently.

Of course! (at least that's what the instruction manual says)

I use Jedi mind powers to charge mine. Whoever thought of using their hand(s)? So much wasted motion...

The Army is the same way. I had to think a minute and I realized it was my shooting hand. Also, immediate action and clearing drill are done with the shooting hand i.e., sports drills.
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 10:13:23 PM EDT
non-shooting hand, it's designed that way. (sorry south-paws!) catch is on the left, bolt release on the left. by the way, you guys with the Ambi-catch ever have problems with it getting caught on clothing or gear when rifle in "slung" position or while maneuvering? it looks like a handy device, but i fear the worst in the worst conditions.
Link Posted: 9/27/2002 10:55:13 PM EDT
I look it in the eye and state in a clear, precise manner, “AR-15, you are being accused of the following crimes: possession of evil features, shooting while black, and conspiracy to drain me of all my extra income.” But seriously, why the emphasis in non-military channels to use the non-firing hand?(from what I gather, the civian "tactical" schools apparently teach this, and as one Marine and fellow soldier have pointed out, the use of the right - usually firing - hand is ingrained into our muscle memory early on) Tactical reloads on the move will not require moving the charging handle at all, Immediate action assumes the rifle is not firing - so it will do you no good to have your weapon ready to fire. If you are loading a mag with an empty chamber, is it really that significant which hand you use to load round 1? I mean, my firing hand is on the grip in about the same time it takes for the bolt to slam forward. Adam

Isnt charging the rifle necessary?
Link Posted: 9/28/2002 12:01:39 AM EDT
non-shooting hand. and I release the bolt w/[url]http://www.brownells.com/images/products/722015001.jpg [/url] the latch works well during CQB drills. I can do my reload and then keep my hand on the mag well(that's where it normally goes). The index finger of the firing hand releases the bolt, its there anyway. ________________________________________________ life is to short to drink cheap[beer]

Duh, nice catch. SPORT is also done with the right hand on the handle. (Slap the mag, Pull the handle, Observe the ejecting round, Release the handle, Tap the FA.)

you all must be peasants! I have my scantily clad assistant load my magazines, charge my weapons and clean them. She leaves the shooting to me [:)] sorry, she's too "busy" right now to pose for a picture [;)]
