  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0005]
    The present invention regards tactical magnetic keepers for firearms and accessories.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0006]
    When an operator of a firearm which uses an ammunition clip is engaged in a gunfight the loss of even a moment during a reloading action can result in the death of the operator. Current technology fails to provide equipment which can allow for a sufficiently rapid reloading of ammunition clips to reduce the likelihood of the death of the operator. The current technology can be further inadequate if the operator is injured.
  • [0007]
    During a live gunfight, a strong need exists for equipment which supports a reduction of actions and time required to remove and reload an ammunition clip. Difficulties regarding reloading can waste valuable time and place an operator's life at risk. Additionally, time and attention regarding the carrying and handling of replacement ammunition and handling and carrying of ammunition magazines can cause great risk to an operator's life.
  • [0008]
    For Example, traditional firearms training regarding reloading instructs the hand gun operator to: firstly, obtain a fresh magazine; secondly, exchange magazines with the same hand which obtained the fresh magazine; and thirdly, place the semi-spent or spent magazine in a pant pocket or between the pant belt and body. This procedure can be difficult to execute and error can result in an operator incorrectly using the semi-spent or spent magazine. This method of handling magazines and reloading by an operator during a live gun battle takes too long and can lead to an operator's death. Further, traditional methods in the Law Enforcement community teach to either discard a weapon in case an assailant attacks or deal with a weapons malfunction in some sort of awkward method which can also lead to an operator's death.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0009]
    The inventive embodiments disclosed herein regard magnetic keeper 1 s for a plurality of ammunition magazines. Use of the inventions disclosed herein provide faster responds times to immediate actions that need to be performed when an operator of a firearm is in combat situation, gun fight, training or other circumstance. The inventions disclosed herein can allow the weapons operator to more efficiently maneuver through hostile or other situations than by traditional methods. The embodiments disclosed herein can increase an operators' ability to change magazine with increased rapidity increasing the operator's likelihood of success or survival.
