Ok slightly tongue in cheek here and was not sure whether to post in 'scenarios'' or not.
The old adage - ''use your handgun to get to your rifle'' made me wonder something. I cannot legally (as in TX IIRC) carry my rifle in the truck loaded and ready to rock.
So let us postulate that I am caught in an extreme situation - multiple aggressors, and need to fight my way to my vehicle to retrieve my rifle - which let's say is an SKS or AK. It is stowed under rear seat of crew cab - and a full mag is to hand somewhere close but - not inserted, chamber is empty.
How viable do you think it would be, to get this combo into play when under pressure?? Grab rifle, grab mag - insert, rack and be ready. Depends of course on how close assailants are, I grant you but - ''fumble-itis'' does tend to set in under pressure :biggrin:.
I stress, this is very tongue in cheek and probably not too likely I hope! Imagine if you will you were the poor guy who perished in Tyler at the courthouse incident - and your rifle was not at the ready - how might you play it - with incoming.!! He of course had no such option.
