11/20/11 WOD, put on your duty gear, unload pistol, and put all ammo in another room. Lock your slide back and stick your finger in the chamber, physically check for an empty chamber, look away, press check, look away, press check one more time. Please do not just rack the slide several times and hope your extractor is working properly. Prop up your body armor in a chair, hang it over a door, somehow position it so you can efficiently point your muzzle at it and dry fire.
Move off the line of force as you draw your pistol, push down first and establish a good grip, draw, and with a two-handed grip, get a sight picture and press through on the trigger smoothly. Follow your threat to the ground, retract your pistol to a retracted ready, move again, check your 360, and I mean 360. Don't just give a quick glance to either side, actually look behind you for more bad people, more good people, cover, etc. If you pull the trigger and your front sight moves, you jerked it, heeled it, messed it up in any way, reset your trigger if need be, and do it again until you have a few smooth pulls, then pick up where you left off.
