The “Magpul mag flip”- not so practical

The Magpul Dynamics videos have a lot of useful technique to them- and Costa and Haley are highly skilled operators and teachers. However there are some techniques that may not truly be good fundamental techniques. One example of this is the technique they teach carbine operators for mag changes- flip the gun to one side while holding the release button to make the empty mag fly out of the mag well.

Watch this video to see a more pragmatic approach- you may lose 0.5-1.0 secs (debatable since you're also moving the gun off target and back on target when reloaded) on a mag change but you also won't send empty mags flying into walls or your buddy.
