When I'm carrying one of my .357s I carry either 12 or 14 loose rounds in my front right pants pocket, two speed strips in a cell phone holder on my belt, and a Ruger LCP in an ankle holster. I learned how to shoot combat on the old Practical Pistol Course where you started off with 60 loose rounds in your strong side front pocket. With a 6 shot revolver I can still do 12 rounds in K5 under 11 seconds, but I've had over 30 years of practice.

When I carry my 1911 I carry two spare mags on my belt, and a spare mag in my right front pants pocket. Thirty years of practice to do things one way can also be a bad thing, so I try to be prepared. If my hand goes into my pocket to grab ammo, there better be something besides lint in there.

Oh, yeah. It's 2 complete reloads with 12 rounds for a five shot, and 14 rounds if you're carrying a 6 shot revolver. Murphy's law is alive and well. You're sure to drop one or two rounds.

There might be a time were you may encounter a gang or a flash mob scenario where 5 rounds may not be enough. Yes most gang bangers will flee after the first shot but what IF???

I don't bother with speed loaders or strips. it's my risk to take, but I don't think I'll ever need them.

If you think revolvers are slow, youtube jerry miculek.

He is fast but I feel Bob Munden is faster.

Oh, Bob Munden is the shizznit (that's right, I used that "word") but both are amazing examples of lightning speed with a revolver.

I'd like to see Munden speed reload his single actions. I'll bet he's faster than I am with a semi auto, and I'm fairly quick with a semi. I'll never win an award though.
