Yeah, seems like a good way to make your firearm unreliable when you might need it.

In competition, I would load the mag.
When instructed by the RO, I would load the firearm, put it on Safe, and remove and top off the mag.
Reinsert the mag and had 8+1.

The procedure for "Ghost loading" as described would bend the lips of the mag of some handguns, giving one essentially a one shot semi-auto.

I'm going to have to ponder this all a little to fully understand.

Is that the same as loading 4 rounds (full capacity of the magazine) into a bolt actions, placing 1 more round into the chamber, and sliding the bolt over the rounds in the magazine (you have to push the top round down slightly so it doesn't try to chamber) so you have 4+1 capacity? Because I do that all the time with my Remington and never have a single problem out of it.

In the absence of an internal combustion engine you no longer have the engine and transmission maintenance to consider. Much less expensive. Also, with regenerative braking the mechanical brakes last much much longer as well. Batteries are expensive but if you are careful about how you cycle them they last a great deal longer than what the manufacturers state (in the experience of two of my neighbors who have owned and do own electrics). The cost-benefit analysis I have done favors electrics by a pretty good margin, especially when it is considered that I have a 12.5 Kw solar PV system powering my house (I would have to add panels to charge the truck though).

I would absolutely agree that having an IC engine would definitely make the vehicle more versatile but I am not sure it would be worth it in the long run for my needs. If I need more range for a trip, I would drive my diesel. Most of my days require less than 100 miles range on average.

The diesel electric (like the locomotives use) is a great idea, as you can set the throttle and leave it there, regulating speed with the electric motor. I think that there might be a challenge with the regenerative braking unless you are descending a grade though.

Might be able to make a nice-looking sunroof and bed cover/camper top with PV panels for a trickle charge while parked.
