Came across this video out on Facebook from Thunder Ranch of how to reload and use the bolt release.
The explanation is very simple, Clint Smith of Thunder Ranch explains the relationship between God & Eugene Stoner.
While most of us know how to reload an AR-15, there is a bit of a polarized perspectives on how to push the bolt release.
There are some groups saying that you could lose fine motor skills.
Some believe you will while others say it is a myth and training overcomes that myth.
Clint is on a totally different level believes that God & Eugene designed your body perfectly as well as the AR-15 respectively.
Eugene Stoner is one of the great firearm designers right along with Browning and Kalashnikov.
Clint has a simple and easy way of remembering how to orient your hand when reloading an AR-15: “Point your thumb at Jesus.” Clint goes on to explain that “God designed your hand as a cup. Not a beat on the side of the gun device.”
He then solidifies the point home with “Quit f*cking with God & Eugene.”
This is the most simplified way to explain this and gets ingrained into your muscle-memory.
Do you push the bolt release with your thumb or do you slap the side of your rifle?
