I'll take your word on the other picture then. I was just eyeballing the size of the mag and it looks like the lips of it are a cm at most inside the magwell. It seemed like the friction from that being able to hold it in was less likely than clear tape or something.

Believe me, you're not the first to ask about this photo. I didn't actually take it, though I did write the article right next to it. The photo was actually provided by a civilian who lived across the street from where the incident took place.
Long story short: Several Marble Falls police officers responded to a residence, where a man had barricaded himself inside with a gun. As you see, one of the officers jammed her ammo clip in the magazine port backwards. In talking to the police chief afterward, many other officers saw this and corrected her immediately, though by that time, the picture had already been taken.
