That makes sense. That's my usual deal, and I've found an ideal position for magazines from all the guns i've actually bothered to get out and play with .

The latest is the Famas magazines, which are tricky if you accidentally put them in the pouch backwards. If they're in right, they come out fast and seat really easily, but if not, it's really hard to just look at it and tell which end's supposed to go up.

The open mag pouches basically answers the biggest question I had.

At what point do you figure mag pouches get opened? On contact, or ... ?

It looks like he grips the mag at a certain spot, holds the top of his hand just behind the foregrip, then simply rolls it back until the lip of the mag catches and continues the roll until it clicks into place. I've been just fumbling trying to get the mag to catch before pulling my arm towards my body until it clicks into place.

Thanks for posting this, I have new techniques to practice now.

Kit is optimized as well,

mag well is huge and smooth... mags are in ready holders butt up and aligned to go right in... This is not typical gear for operations..

I don't bother with the pouch tops at all. The only time I would close them is if I'm going to be crawling around on my belly. Otherwise, mags are tight enough in there that they shouldn't come out unless I'm effin inverted.

One of the cool things about real-cap games is after you do it for awhile, you sort of count the rounds. Not really of course, but somewhere in te back of your head you know roughly how many rounds you have in the mag. When you get 2/3rds through, you pull the other mag out and get ready to reload...as soon as you have a break in the contact do an admin reload so you don't have to fuck around with it later under contact.

Basically, put a fresh mag in every time you have a chance.

anyone ever tried stacking Black Inertia BBs prior to the last 5 in the column of BBs, basically the same concept as using tracer rounds as indicators, place 3-4 Black units into the string and when you see the break in the white BBs you know you're close to empty.

I've never used those Inertia rounds so I haven't had a chance to try it. Obviously in lower light conditions it wouldn't be as effective, but for the majority of the time you can visually track White BBs over longer distances, so there is a good chance it would work.

Twenty seconds? Heh... that is slightly slow.

Thanks Morbius,

That's a valid point, about the pouch tops.

I have the same "back of the head" thing with the pistols I've owned. It takes a little while, and you're never really 'counting', but you just get a feeling when it's time to reload. Cool stuff.

I liked this approach moar: http://youtube.com/watch?v=YJubY_7sowU
No its not three seconds long but there are less movements in the whole ordeal so even if you arent very fluent in you actions there is still visible improvement over eject/pull_out/insert (in that order).
