First topic message reminder :

I've heard bits here and there about focusing on just slow and rapid. I shot next to a High Master this summer that was shooting all of his timed fire at rapid fire tempo(to great effect). Just curious what others have to say about the practice.

I got so many mags I don't know how many mags I got.

Just counted 10 for 208s.  I use 3 mags between 2 208s

I'd have remove shoes for the HS mags  Smile
Maybe Len's shoes too  Sad

So therefore you're having to reload a magazine and re-grip the gun between TF / RF strings or every 5 shots in SF?  

And have no loaded magazine available for a possible "double alibi" recovery on an alibi string?

Whatever works for you seems to be working, but still just something to think about.  

Personally, I generally have 3 loaded magazine at the start of each target and rotate through as I shoot. And before the subject comes up, I've not seen any statistically verifiable difference in scoring (actual shooting accuracy) when using different mags.  But I only use ones that are consistency good and working properly.

2 years ago I had a double alibi during rapid fire in a team match when my 2nd round in the alibi string didn't feed.  Dropped the mag loaded my 3rd mag.  I got all 5 shots off and my lowest shot was an 8, we won the team match by 2 points.  I ALWAYS have that 3rd mag loaded.

Also I never would have been able to do that without a ton of mag change practice I had from action shooting.
