Midnight Raiders -- Sega CD

OK... seems i made it to the infiltration stage of this messed up game... How do i reload my pistol? I ran out of bullets and died.
The oil refinery stage? That happened to me to. After so many tries I gave up on it. The instructions say reload is C but you have to move your cursor over the bullet icon to reload it. Handgun carries 15 rounds and can be relaoded up to 10 times.
