    Strips. Loaders are too bulky.
    I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.

    Speedloader are bulky , but I find them quicker to use. Realistically speaking, I think if you have to reload your revolver under high stress, I think they both are going to be difficult. Much more so than a magazine unless you've done alot of training. I still carry a speedloader when carrying my 642.

    I've got some speed loaders and not been impressed. Too bulky for a pocket.

    Where can one find speed strips?

    I agree re size aspect but never could get on with speed strips as well.

    Despite the relative bulk of speedloaders I find a Comp 1 or better still Comp 2 if manageable, the fastest way to go.

    Have speedloaders but carry speed strips

    I have 3 snubby revolvers that I have carried (.38 and .357), and have speedloaders that fit all three. But speedloaders are rather bulky in a pants pocket, although they work in a coat pocket, so I don't usually carry them. I find a speed strip or two a lot easier to carry, and tend to use them instead.

    Hopefully if I were ever in a shooting incident with a revolver and my gun ran dry before the incident was over, I could find some cover and reload behind a barrier of some sort. I wouldn't want to be standing out in the open trying to reload a revolver with either a speed loader or speed strip.

    I guess I am counting on the incident to be finished before I have expended all 5 or 6 shots. (Note to self: maybe I should look into one of those 7 shot .357 revolvers)

    For me its the good old HKS speed loaders. Plain vanilla. Concealing them has never been an issue for me as I have only carried my wheelie once, and calling that "concealed" would be generous!

    Strips all the way. No contest, since speedloaders are so bulky.

    Where can one find speed strips?
    All over the place, at least in my neck of the woods. Most, or at least many, shops have them in stock. Have you looked in gun shops and not found them?

    Yet another for strips due to flatness.
    Also, since I carry a 5-shot, I have that extra round for when I've shot all the zombies I can and don't want to join them!

    Always at least 1 strip, strip and a loader in the cold months when I'm wearing a coat.

    I carry two revolvers Off-Duty with one Moon Clip and one Speedloader.

    Hiding the speedloader has never been an issue.
