Pro-Tip: Ammo Placement

No, not shot placement, ammo placement. As in where you keep your spare ammo for quick reloading and follow-up shots when hunting. Or even when not hunting. I keep a spare mag in my front pants pocket for self-defense, which is hardly ideal. In my defense, it sits there all by its lonesome; no spare change, keys or phone competes for its attention as and when. And yes, I practice extraction and insertion. (With the magazine, too.) Anyway, here’s Gunsite’s (and the NRA’s) Il Ling New explaining her take on the spare mag while hunting thang. I wonder what “emergencies” she’s talking about . . .

    I suppose that same theory applies to mini-caches for inside the house for H.D. purposes?

    I’m thinking this lady might just be a closet badass.

    Emergencies, huh? I am reminded of that recent u-tube video where the hunters were tracking a wounded lion–that was tracking them, and charged one of the hunters. Died in the hunters arms….Yeah, I’d call that an emergency….

    2 handguns around the belt, rifle on the shoulder. This woman is tooled up. and we don’t even know what’s behind her back or in her boots! Don’t mess with her!

    Normally walking to a stand its with gun unloaded. If per chance you walk up on something big with teeth its nice to be able to load fast.

    We get to overthink hunting guncraft now too?

    She is the only one who said anything that made sense in awhile.

      See also “stopped clock” theory. They keep yacking and sooner or later….. Or if you listen to them, will you ears bleed first?

    Good idea. I like that belt holster for bullets.

    My Win70 in 270 carries 5 but it would be nice to have another 5 handy to get at, rather than in a jacket pocket, or camelback compartment, wrapped in a ziplock bag to keep them dry and not so jingly, which is where I carry them now on a long hike in, anticipating needing maybe them.
