I didn't buy it for that, but it only took a few seconds to realize it would be a bad choice. Mags are finicky to insert, pinch my hand and don't even start to drop free. When I first started looking at them some years back it WAS for USPSA style matches, or practice for them, but IIRC it was the safety that kept me away.

I figure for $200 I can sell it and break even, like it and wanting to go with the light one, or hate it and just want to dump it.

A 1x2 screwed to the side of the wall 5/8” down from the ceiling is key. A 2x4 cut to 7’-11-5/8” also comes in very handy. Did tons of it when I remodeled my house but it did suck.

Mine has some spring assist. The mags shoot out like a rocket.

This would work at the match I shoot. They like to place 3” clays at 15-20 yards. I’m normally a fast but sloppy shooter. I could not break top 3-5 until I went red dot. Reloads are slower and sometimes rounds fly out of the mags when I pull them from mag holder but it’s working.
