Mag change split times
« on: July 10, 2016, 11:14:15 AM »
So I was doing some practicing this morning and was looking at my split times for a mag change. What is usually a good split time shooting Modern with both hands on the gun after the slide locks back? I know I need improvement in this area because I was consistently hitting 3.96-4.06 to drop and change mag, drop the slide and then next shot..

Modern - about 2 seconds
Traditional - about 1 second (traditional shooters get to have a mag in hand and close to the mag well - makes a big difference!)

Make sure you are practicing the right way and stick to fundamentals. Once that is achieved work at making it faster yet smooth. A fast mag change with a fumble in between is slower than a steady mag change that's smooth. Blows my mind how many shooters I see with bad grips and odd mag grabs.

Slowly getting there. Got a 3.52 Saturday after some practice. I've got to get into the habit of reaching for the slide release after the last shot.
