Do your magazines sometimes get hung up in the mag well when performing reloads when they used to just drop freely? You might check out Quick Draw, the lubricant that’s designed for holsters and magazines. In testing we found a 10-15% decrease in draw to first shot times after using Quick Draw to freshen up the inside of our holsters. Learn more at www.ConcealedCarry.com
