Funker Tactical spends some time with a former Marine grunt reviewing the myths that are common spewed forth on the various gun forums. Typically, they are based in pseudo-fact and quasi-bullsh*t rooted in (in)experience.
- Resting your magazine on the ground (monopod). Yes, you can put your weight on it and a in-spec magazine should be able to take it and keep functioning.
- Hand on your magazine well. Assuming you do not put your thumb up, you can hold it all day long. Heck, the Corps taught me this was a great way to hold a rifle, especially while standing and attempting to get the best bone-to-bone contact.
As always, TFB is here to be your bullshido filter.
