Changing mags "with retention" would be a bit silly in real life

I concur, shoot to slide lock. I understand there thinking with mag changes with retention, BUT what happens if you do change a mag out run dry and load up the mag that you retained only to find you have 2 rounds left. Under the stress most will not be aware of how many rounds were in the mag that was retained, possibly thinking its full. Just a thought, thats all nothing more, nothing less.
You retain mags only if/when there's nothing apparently left to shoot, and dropping a partially-loaded mag under those conditions would certainly be silly.

It would somehow be better to have no rounds available at all, than to have some doubt about the number of rounds that you do have (because you did that silly retention reload)?
