As SHOT Show inches closer, Magpul has released a slew of new products including the PMAG D-50 GL9 - PCC 50-round drum magazine. 

Lightweight, yet strong, this 9 mm magazine is for large-format pistols and pistol-caliber carbines that feed from Glock-pattern magazines. Made of a polymer construction and stainless steel internals, it boasts many of the proven features of its 5.56 NATO and 7.62 NATO predecessors, the PMAG D-60 AR/M4 and PMAG D-50 LR/SR GEN M3, while providing the user with a similar magazine-capacity increase. 

Containing a 50-round capacity, the unique drum configuration keeps the height of the magazine manageable, allowing for prone firing and easier storage. To ease loading, it includes a ratcheting loading lever that removes tension from the internal spring. The company has also included a rounds-remaining rear window, a high-visibility follower and a capacity indication roller in order to keep track of your available firepower. Easily disassembled for cleaning and featuring a bolt hold-open feature, the D-50 GL9 – PCC reliably locks the bolt back on empty when used with firearms designed to lock back on Glock-pattern magazine followers. MSRP: $119.95

Caution: The D-50 GL9 is not compatible with Glock handguns. This is a result of the weight of the loaded magazine and the current magazine release in the handgun; look to Magpul for updates.

A similar magazine compatible with the CZ-USA Scorpion is also now available, for supporters of that popular pistol-caliber carbine. Specifications and MSRP are the same as the D-50 compatible with the Glock platform. Reference Magpul PMAG D-50 EV9.

Magpul will be releasing more accessories, including apparel, eyewear, firearm accessories and more as SHOT Show 2020 draws closer, and Shooting Illlustrated will be covering items as they launch.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
