True that. He even thinks the ghetto-rigged dual mags taped together really happen in real war.

i live in the real world. a game like GTA IV makes it so i can go and express myself how i wish i could on a daily basis.

if its unrealistic, my mind just screams "impossible" over and over and i cannot get into the game.

Well if thats how you would react to combat then obviously your not meant for it.

They do, but certainly not often. We were taught that if you are expecting an engagement to last a while (not the stuff you see on the news...) it can cut a second or so off your reload time IF you're slow. Any Marine worth half his salt can combat reload in under 2 seconds from a mag pouch (Was a Navy Corpsman myself, had to do the same training.)

So yes, it does happen, but maybe .05% of the time, and that's being generous. It's never done while you may be moving, the rounds in the mag taped upside-down have a tendency to fall out when jostled too much. The mags we were issued weren't brand-new lol. Which is the main reason we also never loaded a full 30 rounds (or 20 on the shorty mags) the springs weren't always in the greatest shape so loading 28(or 18 on the shortys) saved you from the possibility of a jam from a misfeed.

Would still sound inefficient, especially if you're a SEAL or something.

Cool, nice info. I guess that also kills the illusion that all soldiers always reload with full clips.
