    I tried this exercise at the range this morning. It's been a few years since I've done it and honestly don't remember what my times were back then.

    I timed it,10 times, from last shot to first shot. Average was 4.315 seconds. 442 pro with moonclips. (The moonclip was in the moonclip holder each time) The Pachmayr compac grip slowed me down a bit. Times would have been a tad faster with my wood grip and my Safariland comp 1 speed loaders I think.

    I don't forsee myself ever having to reload in an actual gunfight, and if so, I'm sure it wouldn't be any where near the times I put up today under perfect conditions and the target not shooting back at me.

    Grant Cunningham likes to say, "A platoon of N. Korean paratroopers could land on your front lawn." Then whatever you have will be irrelevant.
    My best friend, who was a Vietnam Vet said once that...”The worst feeling in the world was when you reached for that extra magazine and found there wasn’t another one there!”

    There is a drill I practice where I draw, shoot one round, reload from slidelock, and shoot one round. I can accomplish it in about 4 seconds start to finish. This is from open carry.

    I have not timed myself from concealment.

    Same here, I only practice them for the purpose of having to get the gun running after a problem.

    Well, you practice it all you want...I prefer to only practice for mag/feeding problems.

    Is that simple enough for you?

    My father and uncles (both sides) were all combat veterans from WWII & Korea. When I announced that I was going to join the Corps (during Nam), at least one of them had me shooting once or twice a week. They had me shooting a variety of weapons from a 1911 to a M1 and a M14 (at the time I didn't know it was illegal to own). Each imparted the shooting skills they thought I needed to survive. One of the tenants they taught was to never, absolutely never, let an empty magazine be a surprise. The round count drills were merciless. At any given moment I had to know my exact round count. Being wrong was painful. For the 1911 the drills progressed to me drawing a magazine when I had 2-4 rounds remaining while still shooting. At slide lock, I drop the empty & load the next a spit second after the empty cleared the grip. From slide lock to the next round firing was sub-second. The result of my loving & cruel family's training followed my own relentless drills (in the Corps to today) I've never been surprised by any weapon slide locking on an empty magazine. In combat or at the range I never had to consciously count my rounds...I just know when to reach for a magazine before it runs out.

    Like many of the families of the day, we had relatives come home under a flag. My father and uncles vowed that they would do whatever it takes to help the next generation of our family's warriors come home alive. So far, it has worked.

    The simple one for you is just slide lock, no ammo.
