Probably my last post on the subject also.
There are many opinions floating around on this thread, but I have yet to see any definitive logic to support a multiple-round reload being any more of a burden to a gunfighter than to a traditional style or duelist. It takes the same amount of hands to perform the tasks and there are any number of ways to accomplish them, some methods more efficient than others. But, given the frequency of this event, I don't intend to spend any time worrying about it. Back up about 17 years ago, when I started shooting gunfighter style, handgun reloads were not terribly uncommon. I don't recall the occasional split pistol stage, handgun reloads and the like triggering cries of "foul" and sending gunfighters running for the parking lot.
The game has changed significantly since then.
