This week, we continue looking at hand gun malfunctions, learning about Type 2 (stove pipe) and Type 3 (double feed). Unlike the Type 1 which gives a “click” instead of a “bang”, types 2 and 3 will present with a dead or mushy trigger. This should tell your brain to start moving out of the way, while checking the chamber to see which one you’re dealing with:

Type 2 remedy (stove pipe):
1. Trigger finger goes straight
2. Support hand taps the bottom of the magazine
3. Support hand racks the slide, while tilting the gun toward the ejection port
4. Point back in on target and re-assess the threat

Type 3 remedy (double feed):
1. Trigger finger goes straight
2. Lock back the slide
3. Strip the magazine from the gun forcefully
4. Rack the slide 3 times
5. Reinsert a magazine
6. Rack the slide
7. Point back in on target and re-assess the threat

To setup a Type 2 for practice at the gun range:
1. Eject the magazine
2. Rack the slide ejecting the round, if any
3. Lower the slide, with a round sticking out of the ejection port
4. Insert a loaded magazine
5. Trip the trigger if you are shooting a striker fire (like a Glock)
6. Point in on target and get a dead or mush trigger

To setup a Type 3 for practice at the gun range:
1. Eject the magazine
2. Rack the slide ejecting the round, and lock back
3. With the slide locked back, put a round into the chamber
4. Insert a loaded magazine
5. Ease the slide forward, creating a double feed
6. Trip the trigger if you are shooting a striker fire (like a Glock)
7. Point in on target and get a dead or mush trigger
