    Pistol Kata will program the right habits. There is only a proactive reload in the kata, but after you are comfortable with the footwork, you can add press and tap rack as you go through each leg of the template.

    I had a student have a failure to extract, the brass had to be pounded out. Must have been a bad round (remanufactured ammo). Since he was using an XDm (internal extractor), he was SOL. And I've had a striker break in a Glock, so I carry two Glocks.

    Was this a Glock you had bought new? Factory original striker? How old and how many rounds through it? Which model?

    Suarez Glock 19, aftermarket striker (it was steel but it must've been a bad one), thousands of rounds. I run Suarez strikers now. If you look around, it is not unheard of for the Glock OEM MIM striker tip to break.

    The less cognitive energy we spend on diagnosing and fixing problems the more time we spend mentally "in the fight" and the less time we spend diagnosing and fixing the malfunction. In a 5 second close range encounter you simply don't have 4 seconds to diagnose and fix a malfunction.

    Now if you have cover and distance (think Military rifle fights vs CQB or street crime) you might be able to take the time to diagnose...but all that time you are focused on fixing the weapon in your hands is time taken away from fixing the initial problem of guy who is shooting at you.

    Add to that that if you're working with more than just yourself you stall the momentum of your fire and maneuver which is putting the rest of your team at risk the same as CQB.
