Rener Gracie discusses firearm retention during an attack and demonstrates the ability to cover your slide while firing, thus protecting it from being stripped away from you.

This technique will cause your firearm to jam after each shot, forcing you to rack the slide to chamber another round.


Does the benefit of added control over your weapon compensate for the limited firing capability?

It is a very interesting concept, and may be applicable in close-contact fighting.  Does anyone have any experience in such situations? How do you feel covering your weapon and utilizing your elbow strikes compares to having your support hand free to push your attacker back?
