There are a number of different ways to perform a reload, and a number of different reload “types” that people perform. Administrative reloads, speed reloads, emergency reloads, tactical reloads, reload-with-retention, slide-closed emergency reloads…
…in the end, they are all about getting ammo back in the gun and being able to shoot it again as fast as possible. (Well, except for the admin reload. We are going to ignore that, however.)
There are already a number of videos out there that show how to perform various types of reloads, and we don’t need another one. Instead, as is normal in this series, this video will talk about some of the most common errors people commit in their reloads, and show you how to fix them.
Don’t forget to keep your finger pinned to the frame or slide while performing your reload, and don’t put it back into the trigger guard until you have the gun pointing on target and you plan to fire. Even if you screw everything else up, get the safety part correct.
Oh–and don’t reload sideways. STAHP.
