Suarez International reloading doctrine

July 13, 2014

One of the elements of Suarez International gunfighting doctrine that tends to cause lots of discussion is the way we encourage students to perform their reloads: by default, we retain the used magazine. There are lots and lots of tacticool guys on the Interwebz who favor playing Hansel and Gretel with used magazines, but as WT member Saladin (who has been there and done that) famously remarked during the subgun class in Prescott: “Ammo don’t come in magazines.”

Without a reliable magazine to feed from, your semi-automatic becomes only slightly more useful than a muzzle-loader. I’m sorry if that hurts the Hansels’ tacticool pride, but that is the truth of the matter. Because the Hansels usually misrepresent what we teach to fit their preconceived notions, I figured I’d post what we teach on this blog. I have also added some personal observations on unexpected benefits of following what we teach.

Read the rest on the Suarez International blog tomorrow…
