In today’s computer age the word download isÂ prevalent, however, when we head out to the range people tend to be more in the full capacity mindset. Â If a magazine holds 17 rounds we like to stuff it full. Â This only makes sense. Â Who pours half of a cup of coffee or has half a scoop of ice cream, or drinks half of a beer? Â The American way is to fill it up! Â Well just like in the previous examples loading our mags to partial capacity can have some benefits. Â Today we take a look at what the benefitsÂ might be to downloading our magazines.
- When we vary the number of rounds in the magazine randomly we shoot to slide lock randomly
- When we download our mags to approximately 50% we increase the reps of certain skills such as reloads and presentations to targets
- We extend our resources by training additional skills in the same amount of ammunition.
