Bullets facing forward.
As you can see in Tubby's pics, bullets toward the rear requires more elbow rotation outward, and the wrist to be overly articulated. The further your elbow is away from your body, the slower the movement.
One should not have to rely on the elbow being that far from the body to access the item, as one day you may not have the room to do so. What Tubby was showing in the pics is called a "cavalry draw"
The mind is the limiting factor

And the pics of the bullets-forward were incorrectly done so, yes, it sucked. You simply reach down palm-in with your index finger along the magazine holder and grasp with the lower three fingers, just like when you draw your pistol from the holster with the index finger along the frame. Index finger naturally rests on the front of the magazine and you point your finger at the bottom of your firing-hand fist until your index finger hits the bottom of your firing-hand pinky. Shove the magazine into the well passed your pinky with your palm with some authority and slide release/slingshot to finish up.

Bullets forward. I can reload with my thumb and index finger. The plate goes to the palm. That is the correct way to load. M16, 1911, P2000, whatever.
Tubby, it looks like you are trying to use your whole hand to draw the mag. That's too much meat to metal, my friend. Just put your hand on the bottom the the mag, not all the way around it.
At work, I carry horizontal mags with the bullets down.
The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
