Reload is an important skill because obviously as the gun goes dry, it's a paperweight.  Every shooter should know how to reload. With that in mind, reload should be put in full context with respect to a speed reload, tactical reload, how to rechamber the pistol, what to do with an extra ammo and a dump magazine, etc.

First off, reload is actually rarely utilized in critical incidents. FBI statistics show that only a handful of actual LE or civilian firearm fights resulted in a reload.
