do you actually remove mags and place them neatly in a place where they will never accumulate dirt?

aside from my precision ars all my firearms I drop mags in the dirt rocks bushes whatever where I run out of ammo when I'm running drills. call it tacticool or whatever you want but if anything ever goes south of rather not train retaining empty mags.
I love my country, I love my guns, I love my family
I love the way it is now, and anybody that tries to change it has to come through me, that should be all our attitudes 'cause this is America and a country boy is good enough for me son

Default Tactiholes at the range

Old timers in my circle of friends tell stories about old highway patrol officers shot dead with brass in their pockets after a gun fight. Seems they would go to the shooting range for their training with their trusty Security Sixes and whatever other revolvers, run drills, but hate cleaning up when they were done. So when reloading, they'd take the time to empty their casings into their hands, take time put said casings into their pockets, reload, and go back to shooting.

When training was replaced with real life, they didn't rise to the occasion like so many think they will. Under immense stress, they reverted to their fundamentals from training. Which meant pocket those damn casings while Mr. Traffic Stop is flinging lead at you.

Truth be told, these stories could be from the 60's or early 1900's or who knows. I've never found corroborating info online carried from the newspapers of old. But the concept rings in my ears every time I go practice. So no, I don't baby my mags and neatly tuck them away between reloads. I've studied reload techniques as best I can and practice in the manners that fit situations. It's not that I want to look "tacticool" and fling my mags in the dirt... I just want to be of the training mindset that an empty mag is worthless and I'd better get a fresh one into the gun.

To each their own at the range. Some of us want to train. Others want to punch perfect paper holes at one shot per minute. Whatever floats your boats.
Insert witty retort here.

I've been doing a lot of scenario drills lately. Have been learning a lot from a buddy who was drug task force. I've also have been training a couple of newbies with him in real life scenarios. I guess it makes us look like "tactiholes" when doing this type of training at the range.

The only issue I saw was he didn't appear to have any targets down range. I personally like doing transitions and shooting on the move. As stated in an above post to each their own.

Some people like a square range, some people like to move around. No great revelation. Each to his own I say as long as people are safe.

I see many things in that video that I personally could critique and would do differently. I would say that his skills and practice is lacking in some areas. We "trash shooters" don't really worry much about getting attacked by a bull's-eye paper target at CCSP though so I guess that I'm a "Tacttihole also.

After all it's a safe and sane world out there and guns are antiquated phallic symbols of an archaic type long past. What could happen out there in our modern civilized society? If something did actually happen the sound of my grandfather's empty shotgun "racking" would scare them away. If it didn't I could run outside and fire 2 shots into the air.
