Tag reloading

I used my TAG8 as a primary at the recent Monster Game and wanted pass along this little tip. I had tried unsuccessfully to explain it to a friend before the game and then had him instantly get it when I was there to show it to him, so I took a small vid.
While in play and moving in closer, I carried a loaded mag in my left hand. Then when I counted the mag out I ejected it into my shirt pocket and loaded the next then moved on while returning the empty mag from my shirtpocket to the pouch for it.

YouTube - tagload

Though I'm shooting with both hands, you get the idea, it makes things a little smoother and works great when I'm tight in a bunker too.
I had alot of success with the TAG8 and shot over 2 bags of paint through it in two days of play using 3 mags with the quickload, my stock class harness and reloading on the field. At one point a fellow member of the Great Lakes Rangers(the team I play for) filled some tubes for me from a regular pod, pouring out 10 at a time to me while we were under fire from the castle, what a guy!

This gun rocks!

Nice vid! Heh... good tip tho about reloading. I know I usually like carrying around an extra mag in my hand just in case.

Yes RussC,
Because I play pistol all the time there's no big ole gun to take all my hits for me, most of the hits I take are to the face and hands. Especially because I play most every weekend on the Masters Field at HS:

(we fight up that 60' hill to the left one game and down it the next)
throatguards are a must, and that's the coolest most efficient thing I've ever used, so I hole punched my Vantage mask and stuck it on there, I had the same thing on my old JTs.

Another good tip for the TAG8 magazines is for traveling,
I use Butler Creek brand 'Tini Bikini' scope covers on my mags in between playdays, that way I don't have to worry as much about dropping them or dropping something on them:


Good Times!
Rob
