    For people that have a hard time loading double stack magazines,
    there is a mag loader on the market called the uplula magazine
    loader. It is sheer magic. It will load almost any pistol magazine
    double or single stack. Try it, it is worth the couple of bucks that
    it costs.

    If you want a 92-get the original. Made in Italy.

    I staked my life on the original (M9), and I would do the same with my Taurus version. Same goes for my PT1911. Same goes for my wife's PT709. If I am in the market for a handgun, and Taurus makes something similar, I will by the Taurus every time.

    As to what the OP went through, yes the mags are hard to load till you learn how to do it. I guess I learned fairly quickly reloading for myself and 50 other pilots and crewchiefs on range days. It doesn't matter how big and strong you are, it only matters that you do it correctly. This, as has been stated, can account for jams in more way than one. Not only can two rounds jam against each other, but trying to force feed rounds into the mag almost always does damage. I'm guessing that the 6"-8" off of aimpoint was in your technique, and not the gun. If I can still hit doubles with it consistently, anybody can do it.
