After loading your Magazine, insert it into the bottom of the pistol handle and push it into the pistol as far as possible. When fully inserted, the Magazine Catch will hook over the bottom of the Magazine and hold it in its proper position. Take the pistol in one hand with a firm grip, making sure your fingers are not touching the trigger.

RELEASE THE SLIDE FROM ITS REARMOST POSITION ALLOWING IT TO GO FORWARD
OF ITS OWN ACCORD. This procedure places the first cartridge into the chamber and
the gun is ready for firing. Subsequent feeding and ejection operations are performed
automatically until the pistol is empty. NOTE: Unless the pistol is already cocked, the
Safety must be in the "Fire” (F) position before the pistol can be cocked or loaded from
the Magazine supply. CAUTION: UNLOAD YOUR PISTOL IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO SHOOT IMMEDIATELY
