What’s the difference between a tactical reload and a speed, or emergency, reload? We teach both at Gunsite and, while I hope you never have to perform a speed load in a gunfight, I’m pretty sure you’re going to do tac loads routinely as part of your regular practice or even day-to-day carry.
“Think things through” isn’t just good advice on avoiding impulse buys at the used-car lot. Visualizing self-defense scenarios can help you prepare for potential issues.
The tactical reload isn't just a technique for competition shooting. Practicing your reloads and thinking about potential situations where you would use a tactical reload is critical.
