Default Make your life a little easier!

I am NOT lazy, but I am a thinker! (Thanks, Glen Beck.)

I know there are members out there that start fires with sticks and can field strip their 1911s with just a spent cartridge.

Well get over it, or just stop reading this thread!

I plan on using this to share with my more enlightened brothers/sisters the items I personally own.

I will comment on my acquisitions with pro & con views, based on my personal experiences.

I encourage your comments as to your experience/thoughts on each item.

In addition please post any of your 'tools & toys" that make firearm ownership a little more enjoyable. (or miserable)

I will conclude each review with one of these three ratings/recommendations;
1. Buy it!
2. Run away from it!
3. Meh

Lets see what the 'ole canester has first:

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The first review:

The Maglula UPLULA Universal Pistol Magazine Loader



This military quality, polymer loader is advertised as capable of loading (with no adjustments, inserts or spacers) 9mm Luger through .45 ACP, single and double stack magazines in 1/3 the time of conventional loading.

I have owned this for nearly a year and can only comment on it's efficacy in use on 1911 7 & 8 round mags and Glock .40 SW 10 & 15 round double stacks.

It does work , and I have eliminated the dreaded 'range thumb' anomaly completely!

No more sore fingers from those extended range visits and much faster reloads!

Check out this video. With little practice even I can now 'speed load'!


I started this thread because of this Midway on-sale email.

If you do not have a mag loader, this would be a great addition to your arsenal!

Canebrake rating: Buy it! Especially if it's on SALE!

I think it's a little pricey, but well built, and should last you a life time.

It's a canebrake range bag regular (RBR)!

Oh, did you miss the old fart memo, or just figured it didn't apply to you guys that still have breast milk on your breath?

Been there, done that and got the orthodontist bills, college tuition bills and first-house down payment scars T-shirt.

After 42 years of marriage, all my mag loaders have mags of their own and workin' on getting them loaded!

This "Make your life a little easier" thingie will make much more sense to you once you start shaving!

Quick question. Why is the logo rainbow colored. Is there a hidden message maybe????



Seriously though, thanks for the review. I'll look into one of those mag loader, helper, universal thingies.

Not everything is in Black & White, but can be!



The other one came from Jeff Gordon's pit crew or Jesse's

If you need a mag loader, you need a revolver.
