    Flogging a dead horse:) Stay focused on the threat while executing a tactical reload

    Doing a demo during class and noticed my tac reload while watching the video. Thought I'd stir it up a little more. Even though there is a lull in the fight or you're behind cover, it still behooves you to stay situationally aware at all times and stay focused on the fight and threat.

    I know similar debate has been engaged here not too long ago, but whether performing a tactical reload or reload, I prefer to keep the gun up near my line of sight (work space I've heard it called).

    I keep my focus on my adversary. I can reload either my auto-loader or my revolver without looking at it.

    That's why PhoenixTS said that he's flogging the horse. He was the OP of that thread where the debate raged:

    Emergency Reload - To look or not to look at the handgun while reloading...

    You're right! Amazingly, that one didn't get locked.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    I like the gun right below my chin for emergency reloads...and a tad lower when executing tactical reloads. Works for ME. I don't like the gun in front of my face...eyes on surrounding. The mustache took a few years:)

    What's the point of raising this point again?

    Last thread was about emergency reloads, this one is about tac reloads. I did not realize you were the forum's police. Why are you so angry and disagreeable?
