0152 – Download to Extend Your Resources

In today’s computer age the word download is prevalent, however, when we head out to the range people tend to be more in the full capacity mindset.  If a magazine holds 17 rounds we like to stuff it full.  This only makes sense.  Who pours half of a cup of coffee or has half a scoop of ice cream, or drinks half of a beer?  The American way is to fill it up!  Well just like in the previous examples loading our mags to partial capacity can have some benefits.  Today we take a look at what the benefits might be to downloading our magazines.

  1. When we vary the number of rounds in the magazine randomly we shoot to slide lock randomly
  2. When we download our mags to approximately 50% we increase the reps of certain skills such as reloads and presentations to targets
  3. We extend our resources by training additional skills in the same amount of ammunition.
