Why so glock mags so tight?
Today i went to the range, and once again flawless:) Two small problems, first i ran all over town looking for ammo. Both wal-marts didnt have any .40 ammo:mad: I had to go to a local gun shop to get some. Anyway, does glock mags loosen up any? i can only get 10 rounds in my 13 round mag.

The UpLula is a universal magazine loader that will load most handgun magazines very easily; single or double column. The compact design allows it to easily stow in the range bag. Does not work well with Smith & Wesson 7 round single column, Glock .45 GAP double column, Glock .45 single column magazines. For proper function, there must be 8mm clearance between the feed lips. May not load the last round in a few types of magazines.

The mag will "relax" a bit and be easier to load.

Glock high capacity mags have always been known for being tight. It's common practice in LE to not load the final round in the mag to eliminate excessive pressure on the bottom of the slide when doing tactical reloads. My .45 mags are 13 rounders, but I only load 12 in them.
