  3. How important is magazine retention to you?

    Tactics and Training
    I was discussing plate carriers at work and I mentioned that I had a dump pouch on my weak hand side for magazine retention (primarily for partially empty mags, though it is good for other things).

    I just received this revolver from my grandfather after he passed away 2 months ago. The revolver's rotary mag has no place to put bullets in, which leads me to belive that this is a toy; however the barrel of the gun says: BLACK POWDER ONLY 44 CAL on the side, so I do not know what to think. If...

    Revolver Discussions
    I picked one up a couple of days ago, and I have a question that I can't find the answer too on the net, so I pose it here. Are you supposed to carry it on an empty chamber, like SAAs?

    I wanted to build a fixed stock AK-47, but the only kit I could find was an underfolder kit.
