My P-32 came with just one mag. Now, on a gun that size I'm not likley to carry a spare (if I felt I had to, I'd probably be better off with my Glock 19 :twisted: ) but a spare would be nice for practice.
Get a spare mag and a spacer from k/t for h/p ammo. I have several spares and since these are my primary weapons I carry 2 guns and a couple of mag's. I know most of these weapons are relaible, but things have been known to break so I just carry a spare gun. Also "reloading" is much quicker by just pulling your other gun.
Its been gone over again and again on various gun boards... :twisted: ...but
Things about "Last Man Standing" that tweak 1911 owners
(including myself) seem to be the "bottomless mags" Willis carries and the fact that the 1911 is seen as a "death ray" (ie guys getting shot do double back flips over and over.
I like the actors and the story is cool and of course its a great showcase for the 1911, just seems the gunplay realism is a little too Hollyweird for me.
Not so "Way of the Gun"...the last gunfight seems nicely gritty and realistic (witness one of the protaganists doing a one handed re-load, pulling the mag out with his teeth and then slamming a fresh one home while the gun is held between his legs) - I could almost sympathize with that scene.
Although I admit, it seemed liked del Toro and his collegue also at times had the "bottomless mag syndrome" that afflicts Holllyweird sometimes.
James Caan using an SP 101 in the closing gunfight was a nice touch. Made me glad I owned one
I know, I know, his guns don't run out of ammo, especially during the first gunfight when he's bodily lifting the bad guys off the floor with a wall of .45 slugs...
Notice him loading about 20,000 magazines for the final confrontation, and -
I view movies as a form of Entertainment and give them a bit of poetic license, being in the entertainment business myself...
If I had to write my characters so that every SINGLE detail complied with it's real-world counterpoint my writing would be boring indeed.
Furthermore, having BEEN in a couple of gunfights... I've honestly had my share of reality on-screen, thanks.
