On stages with an unloaded start, make sure you do not load your gun with the mag that contains eleven rounds. While it's OK to have a mag loaded with eleven rounds before the stage starts, when the timer goes off, no mag can contain more than ten.
The origin of "Barney mag" goes back to the 1960's Andy Griffith TV show, in which Sheriff Andy's deputy, Barney Fife, was allowed only one cartridge for his service revolver; the mag that has the one round that's used to top off the gun is thus the "Barney mag".
