Not much has been going on this week training wise. Mostly just playing around with different variations on the reload. To get a glimpse inside the nightly routine of a revolver shooter, I give you this video (you will have to excuse the quality, my editing software was not cooperating).
I posted about using that type of reload a few days ago. So far, I am likeing it. My only concern is viability with smaller revolvers that do not have a full length ejector rod. Inhope to get some live fire in this weekend and really try it out.
I also had a discussion with someone about keeping the reloads higher to try and keep my eyes up, but still allow some visual reference of the revolver during the reload. Similar to what Clint Smith teaches. This technique is not without its own set of short comings, but I thought I would give it a try.
With a Comp III, it works okay. I don’t think it would work so well with a speedloader that was completely gravity fed, like a HKS or Comp II. Definitely would not work with speed strips or something like that. It seems pretty fast, but I still catch myself not looking the reload into the gun. Habits are hard to break I guess.
