That’s just it. If they charge by the hour, I’m paying to shoot, not stand there stuffing mags.You bet ya. I show up to my range with 30 loaded Glock 17 mags in the ten round mag holder Glock bags. No way I’d unload all that and reload them. That’s 510 rounds. I load them at home so I don’t waste time loading them there. They charge you per hour and I want to spend that hour shooting not loading. The only ones I load are my other gun mags that I don’t have that many mags for.
In Phoenix, the Ben Avery outdoor complex was a flat rate for the day. Rightfully so too considering they go cold range every 15 minutes for 10 minutes or so for folks to hang targets. That’s not so bad. Between cold range times and loading mags, it kind of slows down your shooting allowing you to make a solid day out of less ammo. 👍
