I, personally, wouldn't be banking on being able to do a press check under a critical situation, so I think I'd rather spend a little extra time ensuring that I can seat a mag under pressure.
Sorry, but I just don't see the merits of press checks.
No one is saying to press check in a gunfight.... That would be stupid. But it doesn't hurt to do it when you load your gun just to make sure. I'm a visual OCD person. If I don't see the round in there, then I may question it. No, it doesn't make sense when I top off my magazines anyways, but it is how I am.
