    Hey fellers.

    I'm sure some of y'all know this, who makes speed strips/ speed loaders?

    Are either of these products worth while?

    I will soon have (2) .357 Magnum revolvers would like to be able to reload fast as possible.

    I have HKS speed loaders for all of my revolvers. Bought from Midway I think...

    Same here they are about $10+/-, so there's no reason not to get 3-4/gun. They loosen up after a while if you handle them constantly, (in and out of pockets or car) but are pretty durable overall.

    Practice a bit with them though. :)

    I have both HKS and Safariland speedloaders (I prefer the Safariland) and I also have Bianchi Speed Strips for my .38 and Tuff Products Strips for my .38 and .45 LC.

    I have HKS and Safariland speedloaders and Tuff speed strips. I find the speed strips the most useful (flat in the pocket, and I don't like wearing a custom speed loader holder on my belt).

    I use the speedloaders for my bedside and desk drawer guns and use the speed strips in my pocket when I am out.

    Then practice a little more. When you think you got it all down. It's time to practice some more.

    I've used HKS speedloaders for a while, but have recently switched over to Safariland for carry. They are a bit smaller (at least the Comp I) and I like the release method better than the one HKS uses (it's faster and easier, at least for me).

    I carry Bianchi speed strips as well, but only as a back-up to a speedloader or when hiking/camping to keep the bulk to a minimum. No matter how much I practice, I find the Safariland Comp I much faster than speed strips so I trade off a little bulk for better performance.

    The good thing about all these options, is that they are quite cheap, so you can get one of each to try out and give away the ones that don't work for you (or just use them at the range, or as back-up).
