I have finished IDPA stages one handed in the time it takes to stow and return weak hand to the gun.

Indeed, very good tactical clear/reload mag skills.

This will work too, and I have used the same version bag with success for quick mag dump and reload.

Spec Ops Dump Pouch

It sounds as if you guys want to learn two procedures and remember which to use when the SHTF and your fine motor skills deteriorate.

No thanks ! I'll stick with the standard combat reload. If I win, I'll be sure to police up all of my empty magazines.

What's next, after the dump pouch ? A brass catcher in case you are in a SHTF situation in which society has broken down and you must reload your own ammo ?

Again, wouldn't retain in the middle of a fight, but time and opportunity hang on to 'em.

IMO you should learn two procedures, retention for Tac reload, drop it on the deck for combat/ speed reload. Its still a thinking man's world, even with the adrenaline dump and loss of fine motor skills.

How long does the average gunfight take? As long as it takes. How many rounds will you need? One more.
