One is regarding limited capacity guns like my xde 45 and poppers/ movers. And maybe everyone has to deal with this but it’s not very realistic or fun to have to count rounds and mag changes to get to the poppers with enough left to engage.
What's unrealistic is thinking you will be able to count rounds in a gunfight. That's why the slidelock reload is considered "standard"; the first clue that you'll need to reload in a self-defense situation is realizing the gun is empty.

The emphasis on reloads in practical competition is itself somewhat unrealistic, what with the average self-defense situation summarized as "three seconds, three yards, three shots", but I'd still like to have skills that may be needed in the worst way.
Runs off at the mouth about anything 1911 related on this site and half the time is flat out wrong.
