    We aren't allowed to have our guns loaded up here around the house, so many of us practice a draw and load. I find I can reliably do it in 4 seconds from concealed and in condition Yellow. Reloads can be faster than that, but in real life as opposed to IPSC, you would want to get to cover first and then reload.

    With my revolvers and HKS speedloaders, I'm averaging around 5~6 seconds. If I can do that under real-life pressure, I'll be happy with it. (See? Some of us are honest reporters.)

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Reloads for my G-19 from CCW is on the order of 2-3 seconds. With my 6" Colt Python and the shoulder holster it is on the order of 5 seconds with a Dade Speed Loader (same as in Magnum Force the Movie). Yes the springs still hold the bullits.

    In a Gun Fight I think I can load my drawers in under 2 seconds,If I hear a buzzing and no bees around I can reload them in under one second
