EXETER, NH –-( In this tactical tip, Chris Cavallaro, AKA “Cav” breaks down different types of magazine changes and when they should be used, including emergency mag change, tactical mag change, and a brief synopsis on when it's more beneficial to transition to your secondary firearm.

Remember, emergency mag changes should only be done when you have significant distance between you and the aggressor or, if and when you have good cover.

If it's an up-close battle with short distances between you and the threat, make sure you transition right to your pistol – especially if there's any issue with your rifle. Tactical mag changes should only be done when there is a lull in the fight – or the fight appears to be over – and you want to gas up your firearm just in case there are more threats to come.
