Mleake, your posts # 42 and 43 are right on the mark, that 1/2 second delay can be fatal for a number of reasons, and the OP's first query and expressed lack of confidence in carrying while fully loaded plays to it. I'd not recommend less than carrying fully loaded and in a gun with controls that you personally find suitable and are comfortable with...anything short of that is a big compromise...but the Israeli method sure beats a sharp stick or a stout rock. Best Regards...and I do enjoy your well thought out posts. Rod

It proudly waves because a soldier's dying breath blows upon it.
