Most of my training has been to shoot as long as you need to, until slide lock if necessary, and then do a speed reload. Louis Awerbuck specifically teaches that. A tactical or administrative reload is a luxury reserved for when things have quieted down.
My thoughts exactly, never understood why IDPA was hot-to-trot about tac reloads or reload with retention. Reason for my thoughts on this is, how many SD shootouts have a lull in the action that a tac/retention reload was needed/possible???
