Reloads....again

I am still working on trying to get where I can use an over the top rack technique on pistol reloads in under 2 seconds. So far, it has been nothing but a barrel of FAIL. My last couple of range trips I have spent more time than normal specifically on reloads trying to better quantify where I am at now. On 6-29-12 I did 19 reloads on the clock and had an average time of 2.53 seconds. I really had some impressive times for this reload technique with a fastest of 2.13 seconds when everything went well. I had three other reload below the 2.20 mark. My slowest was an incredible 3.32 seconds where I really fumbled everything up. I only had one other reload over 3.00 seconds, another fumble. Here are the raw numbers.

So if I nail the reload, I can get close to where I want to be (sub-2.0 seconds). The problem is, I am not consistently nailing the reload. I have always struggled with reload consistency on the Glock platform. I consistently have trouble getting the magazine and mag well lined up correctly and they get hung up on each other. This is one area where the Beretta excelled over the Glock, as mentioned in this post. I just really need a lot of work in this area (and every other area too!!!).
