Tips For Speed Reloading Your Beretta 86

Speed reloading is a practice method that improves your speed of reloading, this is crucial in self-defense situations or in life-threatening situations. The proper way of drawing your magazine from the pouch and simultaneously reloading it in the handgun is not a hard thing, but requires a lot of practice.

1. Releasing the empty mag

You can use you dominant hand to do this, with your thumb pressing the release and ejecting the mag or you can use your non dominant hand. The use of the non-dominant hand requires you to turn your non-dominant thumb and pressing the release while keeping other fingers on the grip.

2. Keeping the gun at eye level

It’s important to maintain the gun in eye level and keeping contact with the target. Don’t shift your handgun away and look away.

3. Grabbing the spare mag

Once you have points 1 and 2 cleared you can grab your magazine. Always grab it in a manner where your index finger copies the length of the magazine. You can reach for the end of the magazine with your index finger in order to help it guide the mag back into the handgun. It’s easy - finger on the front on the magazine, pointing at the magwell.

Common Types Of Magazines

A magazine is an ammunition storage and feeding device within or attached to a repeating firearm. Magazines can be removable (detachable) or integral (internal/fixed) to the firearm. The magazine functions by moving the cartridges stored within it into a position where they may be loaded into the barrel chamber by the action of the firearm. The detachable magazine is often colloquially referred to as a clip, although this is technically inaccurate.

The earliest firearms were loaded with loose powder and a lead ball, and to fire more than a single shot without reloading required multiple barrels, such as pepper-box guns and double-barreled shotguns, or multiple chambers, such as in revolvers. Both of these add bulk and weight over a single barrel and a single chamber, however, and many attempts were made to get multiple shots from a single loading of a single barrel through the use of superposed loads. While some early repeaters such as the Kalthoff repeater managed to operate using complex systems with multiple feed sources for ball, powder and primer, easily mass-produced repeating mechanisms did not appear until self-contained cartridges were developed.

The most popular handgun magazine is a box magazine, it stores cartridges in a column, either one above the other or staggered zigzag. This determines if they are single stack or double stack boxes, aka magazines, which are used in many firearms.

7 Tips To Improve your
Beretta 86 Accuracy

 

Have you ever wondered how to improve your aim and accuracy with your Beretta 86? You can find it out below, but beware, there are some physics involved. Each firearm has a specific weight. This is the weight in your hand. Now add the weight that is needed to fire your 86 and you have a equation where these are compared. Let’s say that your firearm weighs 2 pounds and the trigger finger force is 12 pounds for the first shot and 5 pounds for subsequent shots. This means the force is more than the weight and we are getting to the conclusion - the gun will move. if the gun moves during the firing sequence, the shot will impact somewhere other than where it was originally aimed. This is a pretty simple concept. But how do you solve the problem? The answer is easy. Press the trigger and don’t pull it. This will end up in not moving your gun and this improving the aim. The best practice to learn it is dry fire practice.
