Even Faster AK Reload By Travis Haley

A few days ago, I posted a video of a guy performing an impressive reload on an AK. Here is the link in case you missed it.

Well Travis Haley turned it up to 11 with his reload drill. He is blazingly fast. It almost looks like he fired before his left hand touched the forearm.

    I can do that, but not as fast. It is harder to do without fumbling while walking though. So I prefer to hit the mag release with my thumb, while holding the fresh mag in my left hand. YMMV.

    The late Jeff Cooper once remarked words to the effect of "With enough practice, one can do a one-finger handstand. So what?"

    An AK-47 typically employs a thirty round magazine. So after thirty rounds fired, one must then execute a 'one-second' (give or take) reload in order to continue the 'fight'. Based on this set of circumstances, one must presume the protagonist is acting alone, and against more than thirty opponents.

    I would be very surprised if at least one of the initial thirty adversaries didn't get a hit on our protagonist during the expenditure of the first thirty rounds.

    Is this a 'fast reload'. Yes it is. It has little value in the real world, but it is fast.
