I take my pistol out of the locker, rack the slide, place it into the holster, then I mount the holster in the belt. It takes about 7-10 seconds. On occasions, I will use the backup magazine and load one, remove the magazine, and then put the carry magazine into the pistol. Rarely do I rack the slide, add a round to the magazine, and then place the topped off magazine into the pistol. HOW DO YOU DO IT? Do you always carry PLUS ONE?
