An alternate point of view is that repositioning the gun with the weak hand, while admittedly slightly slower, permits better control of the weapon during the reloading process, especially for those with smaller or weaker hands. This would also be true if the weapon and/or hands were wet or gloved.Originally posted by tonerguy:
If you have to reposition the gun in your hand in order to reach the mag release (I do), learn to do that smoothly with only the strong hand. Don't let the weak hand "help" to reposition the gun before it leaves to retrieve the new magazine from your belt.
I admit to being a strong hand "flipper" but I don't advocate it in most cases.
