I learned something yesterday at the range. I was trying out the 50 round drill described here: Training with only 50 rounds
I have been carrying a sub-compact 1911 style, and practice magazine swaps with snap caps at home - never a problem. I have been transitioning to carrying a compact/commander size 1911 every now and then. I have not done magazine swap drills with the compact 1911 at home - just didn’t think it would be that different. I was wrong! When I came to the part of the drill where you drop a magazine I had a rude surprise - I can’t reach the magazine release button with my thumb.
I am guessing the solution is to use the off hand to release it prior to the off hand grabbing the “spare” magazine? How does everybody else drop a magazine?
Maybe I should re-watch the video to see how she does it
