sorry for the confusion, maybe I explained it the wrong way. I am not ripping out mags and letting them hit the floor. I am reaching for one mag as I eject the other. letting the ejected one go into the hand with the full mag. slamming the new one in, putting the old one in the back pocket as I keep firing. My gun holds 8+1. If I do my 3 target drill I reload after 6 dry fires. If I do my single I reload after 8 dry fires, so there is still one in the chamber and I can go back to 9.
Is this a bad rhythm? Should I be dry firing all 9 and then reloading? Or is this a preference thing. My logic behind it was so I don't have to waste time dropping the slide stop to get the gun back into battery.
