While I do appreciate the point this Sheriff is trying to make, this isn't really accurate. Both shooters left the last round from the first mag in the chamber and counted rounds, eliminating the need to release the slide after every mag change. I've found that, unless equipped with an extended slide release, even fairly small handguns need to be turned slightly for my thumb to reach the release, which will add just a bit to reload times.That doesn't change the fact he's proving: whether 2 of one or 5 of another, mags can be changed very quickly and the odds of you taking down an assailant while he's reloading are slim to none.
It's much easier to count rounds with smaller magazines. This was demonstrated, but not commented on, in the video.
I see your point but it doesn't change the fact that mag changes can happen pretty fast even without much training.
For the timed reloads, I wish they'd have used magazines that were stored in a vest or something. How often does a crazy SOB have loaded mags arrayed nicely in front of him? Not saying it would invalidate the experiment ... quite the contrary. Just saying you have to be scientific and anticipate such criticisms.
Should have done the running at 21 feet as a Tuller drill. That is the standard.
Should have done the running with the runner starting out cowering under a desk, not looking to see when the shooter was taking the gun off target. That is the real world standard that spawned the latest attack on gun ownership.
Jim is awesome. Silent but deadly.
