I've seen shooters with speed loaders that can reload a six gun just as fast.

Don't be shocked but one Connecticut legislature already proposed a new law restriction limit to one round on the basis that it was the common firearm at the time the Constitution and Bill of Rights were created. His proposed law will probably not get enacted in this current year but demonstrates some of the politicians on steroids in the current anti gun frenzie.

The gun grabbers don't know guns, don't like guns and naively believe that if they take them away from legal gun owners that gun problems will go away. Most have never handled a gun and don't realize how safety conscious about safety most gun owners are. And they don't care. They want to force us to give up guns but how would they like it if we had the ambition to force them to carry guns. At the end of the day since we leave them alone they should leave us alone. They should be arrested for imposing on our 2nd amendment right

IMO, mag caps have nothing to do with it.

We need to eliminate gun-free zones, and monitor

mental defectives.

If we can send just a couple more to DC, think how much

safer "our children" would be...

Oh and by the way, here's a guy who basically eliminates the need for anything other than a revolver, and he can load it as fast as we can swap mags out.

I didn't watch the video, mainly because of his championship status. The true test is what can the average shooter do.

Back in my younger days I don't think there was a LEO around that couldn't accurately fire 12 rounds from a revolver in less than 15 seconds. Many of us were going under 1 second per round including the reload, and this was long before the speed-loader became common. It's all in the muscle memory and the willingness to practice.

Thats why u gotta watch it Doc. Its not the champion that drives home the point, its the 35ish young woman "Cristy" that does it best. While both shooters had differential times due to marksmanship capabilities, the test was when they were using Hi cap V low cap and the times were very little difference.

Heres the Rub, were supposed to call 911, wait a minimum of 15 minutes and maybe an hour for help and defend ourselves with "Their choice" of weapon not ours. If 2 criminals with 2 ileagal weapons break into my house while im sleeping, Andy says Ive got to wake up and shoot my 7 shots sniper style perfectly or my family dies! Then they tell us they will make things safer by forcing the shooter to reload more often which adds about 3 seconds in 30 rounds! 15 minutes for help and maybe 3 seconds longer to live, that just sucks if you ask me!

Default Training..

All it really takes is training, no matter what size mag you have or how many rounds your revolver holds, all you have to do is train yourself for the fast reloading..... that was one of the main things I was taught in the military, how to reload as fast as you can under fire/stress and all that..... there are lots of people who have it engrained into them how to reload quickly under stress, etc.

To this day, some 40 years later, I still carry ammo in my right front pocket. It's how I was trained, it's how I practiced, and it seems to be a reflex to reach there during rapid fire. Whether it's a loaded magazine or loose rounds for my revolver, the right front pocket is my primary storage space. You want to know the funny part? I absolutely hate the idiots that trained us this way.

Hmmm, that story sounds political. My thread was deleted by a mod for what he said was the "political nature" of the subject.

However, it wasn't said to me in a very nice way.....
