    This video shows a good example of a good mag change drill to do at a range (if they permit).

    so far this is the only video i watched on this thread, but he is showing reloading with a round still chambered and his muzzle control is all over the place. i would hope that he doesnt do that with live ammo, but i know that what you pratice reflects how you will actually perform.
    i know that when i practice reloading, my mindset is that i am still engaging my target and the muzzle is always covering it.

    I do this drill with live ammo all the time. Before you criticize any further, I encourage you to take a look at the first post here by opaww. The video is from the US Army Marksmanship Team. Once you watch that video, I would like you to post what is similar with that video and my video (concentrate on the reloads performed).

    Also, I would like you to go into more detail on exactly how my muzzle was all over the place. Feel free to post a video or pics showing how this way is incorrect. Keep in mind that there are multiple ways to do perform reloads.

    Miller was demonstrating the proper draw, point, aim, shoot, reload procedures, except not in live fire loaded weapon demo. Watch the Army handgun Pro Shooting steps for that.

    Now tell me that Miller did not maintain and follow through the same way, except for live shoot. I did not see the excessive muzzle wave you state and very little, if none, when he was explaining the pre-run through procedure, before the finale example.

    The first video is on the money...If you wait until you have no rounds left to reload you put yourself at risk of loosing the gun fight. Even with 13 rounds in the mag of my high power, I will still change mags at half full.

    if you take it as criticism, fine. i was taught, and try to practice never cover anything with your muzzle you are not willing to shoot. i come from teaching that says to me when he lifted his weapon and tilted it, it reflected a weapon with a round chambered more than likely not covering the orignal target. if that is not how you see it, ok.
    i saw the same thing on on the first army shooting tips video. again, just not how i would do it.
    i am not saying wait till empty, if you have a chance to reload do it. sorry that i dont have the capabilities to video how i "rapid reload," that i admit isnt very rapid.

    Right at this point.

    There are many ways of doing tactical reloads but the one constant that should NEVER be violated is that your eyes and muzzle should be covering the target(s) at all times, even when you run the gun dry. Here you are looking at your gun and your muzzle is pointed at the ceiling (with a live round in the chamber I'm sure your range guys wil have an issue with that).

    I hope you take this comment in the light it was offered. Not meant to offend, just trying to help you improve.

    Its hard to see in this shot, but where is the shooter's trigger finger? Looks like its still on the trigger?

    In real life, you'd be better off shooting each bad guy once because firing two shots at the first guy leaves the others more time to shoot you. I think John Farnum covers that in the book, " The Street Smart Gun Book ", available from Police Bookshelf.

    But heck, in real life, tactical reloads should be all but ruled out. I believe Clint Smith said something like, " You've got a functioning gun. Don't mess with it. " That is by memory from his Defensive Handgun DVD.
