AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO KNOW HOW MANY ROUNDS YOU HAVE At all times in your edc❓
Hmmmm, so, incase of the scenario where TSHTF, you need to know how many rounds you have.
When the slide locks back 9 rounds have been expended. Every slide lock back after that, 8 rounds have been expended. Kinda easy.
That is exactly how I kept count today except my count was 16, 15, 15:)
I generally count at the range.
I don’t think it’s important in a per shot string, or, how many are left in the mag, context.
Sometimes I try not to, intentionally, or just focus on other things, because there’s too much real life evidence indicating it’s extremely unreliable to count rounds in a real life dynamic critical incident/defensive gun use.
Now, I do track how many rounds I fired, so I can keep track on the gun. I know how many magazines I brought, how many boxes I brought, I’ll take a pic or two as needed, and I’ll record then or when I get home to add the rounds fired to that gun in my doc
Bill168 OK. HERE WE GO!!! Yes YOU DO NOT WANT TO RUN OUT OF AMMUNITION IF YOU JUST HAD TO SHOOT. A. CARTEL MEMBER. HIS BUDDIES ARE. COMING LIKE .COCKROACHES. AND YOU JUST DONT HAVE A CLUE OF HOW MUCH AMMUNITION YOU HAVE TO DEFEND YOURSELF. THANK YOU . THIS HAS BEEN IN LIGHTENING. Truly Love Bobby Jean
NATHAN 57 SOME FOLKS JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND . We train. TO DEFEND OUR SELVES AND . IT IS THE LITTLE THINGS SIR AND NO I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN COUNT THE EXACT AMOUNT OF AMMUNITION YOU HAVE BUT THAT BEING SAID YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD IDEA I WOULD HOPE . SIR WE ARE IN TROUBLE IF WE DONT START TRAINING TO DEFEND OUR SELFS AND OUR FAMILIES AND MAYBE OUR COUNTRY AND . I . Have DROPPED MY MAGAZINEN TO SEE HOW MUCH AMMUNITION WAS STILL IN THE MAGAZINE BECAUSE I WAS STILL BEING SHOT AT AN I HAD TIME BEHIND COVER TO MAKE SURE I HAD AMMUNITION IN MY MAGAZIN. Sir I KNOW YOU KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING . Thank you for your service SIR LOVE Bobby Jean SIR
In a battle or war condition you do not want to move to another cover and only have one round left. At the range it is good training to change magazines and continue shooting. If your slide locks to the back, how fast can you reload and release the slide to get back into action? If you can reload before that happens you will have one in the chamber just in case a round is needed. I find that doing that is faster than messing with the slide locking back.
So you only carry low capacity magazines and you only carry one edc and they are all 8,OUT AND LOCK BACK NOT GOOD . Training sir HAVE A GOOD DAY I HAVE 17 round magazines and fifteen . AND 30 and 50. AND MANY DIFFERENT EDC’s. SO YOU ARE TRULY TRAINED SIR. LOVE Bobby Jean SIR
Todd30 that is good practice SIR ALWAYS HAVE A ROUND IN THE CHAMBER . Because if you’re changing magazines and the bad guys come up on you you’re not dead AND YOU CAN STILL SHOOT THEM AND CHANGE YOUR MAGAZINE SIR BROTHER YOU SHOULD GET THE BEST POST OF THE WEEK SIR LOVE Bobby Jean .
And IF THE BAD GUYS SEE THIS THAT YOUR EMPTY YOU ARE DEAD I HAVE SEEN IT TOO WHERE YOU SAY CHANGING .AND YOU PARDNER. KNOWS NOT TO DO THAT AT THE SAME TIME AS YOUR SELF
I was always trying to count… and on the Range, shooting target from the line or booth, it works. It is pretty easy, sometimes I feel it counts by itself in my mind.
But during real practice / training, where you must think about everything … somehow counting is almost non-existing.
I learned to check magazine in the firearm as many times as possible and needed. It doesn’t cost any time, it is like press-check.
Self defense scenarios are very short and usually don’t require a lot of counting. Usually 2 - 3 shots end the incident so the magazine is still full enough for taking care of other attackers that can pop up. After second string of fire - it is a good habit to check your magazine, even you think you know how many rounds you shot. Usually in stressful situations this counting never match real amount of rounds in magazine …
And because of such experience I think counting is not so important if you have good habit to check your mag.
Very true…makes perfect sense, hence why I always carry a spare mag. I keep 750 rounds of 9mm in my car too.
I also keep a second gun close or on me. I also keep my AR15 with 10 mags + 1 in my gun as well as my Mossberg 590S in my car…250 rounds as well!
I’m not really sure what the ammo in the vehicle will do
But, this is America, so
Well, My mossbeeg is loaded with 9+1…I also carry 4 extra mags in my car…I have one in my gun as well as an extra mag on me…17 rounds. So, if it was a long drawn out fight or multiple scumbags and I can get to my trunk…then I can get either the shotgun and or my AR15 or both…hang one on my side with the sling.
I doubt it would go past more than 3-5 shots…
You are definitely right jerzzy brother love ya :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
If you can get to your truck MOST GUN FIGHTS ARE OVER IN LESS THAN TWO MINUTES AND THAT IS A ABOUT A HUNDRED ROUNDS AND I HAVE SEEN BROTHERS HITTING THE GROUND FASTER THEN FIVE MINUTES AND EVERYTHING WAS OVER AND NO YOU WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO GET TO YOUR VEHICLE SERIOUSLY YOU HAVE WHAT YOU HAVE ON YOUR PERSON SIR . I know and so does anyone one el That has been in a fire fight SIR . DON 102 help on aisle five please help sir tell them Don.102. CAN YOU GET TO EXTRA AMMUNITION DURING A GUN FIGHT :question: I NEVER HAVE BEEN ABLE TO. RUN WHAT YOU BRING.
I know and get it…hence why I carry two EDC’s…the likelyhood of a gun fight lasting longer than 3-5 minutes and more than 5 rounds is rare.
Bill168 we are all family and we are figuring out everything right here so when we have to defend ourselves we have the mindset to stay alive and not hurt anyone else that is not in the way or even have a weapon I love you sir stay safe I will be putting up some real good stuff for everyone to enjoy a great conversation and we will get THROU this night Mare SIR. THE INVASION OF THE USA SIR LOVE .Bobby Jean and Debbie ann are my dam puppies. ALMEN sir :shamrock:
