    I carry a Model 85CH and/or Model 605 and ten spare rounds (5/vest pocket), loose. Speed loaders just too bulky. Someday I'l get some speed strips.

    I used to just grab the Snubbie and go with no extra ammo. Its just recently that I have been carrying 2 speed strips with me when I head out the door. When I find a Speedloader case that I like(non-leather), I will carry 2 speedloaders.

    One speed strip and one speed loader. I forgot to move them to my shorts today.

    I need to double check before leaving the house.

    When I carry a wheel gun, I will carry at least 2 and usually 3 reloads if it's the only gun I'm carrying. If I'm carrying more than one gun, I usually have 2 reloads for the revolver. Most of the time it's carried in speed strips for the SP-101 but for the Ruger Speed Six, I carry speed loaders.

    Personally, and this may sound a bit harsh, to carry a gun without any spare ammo is foolish in the extreme. I have to chuckle at the reasons they try to rationalize it to themselves. A lot of the times the reasons have little to do with expecting to survive. More like, "it's too bulky" or "if I have to reload, I'm dead anyway." Well, probably so... probably so. Many have never considered what it may be like to face 3 bad guys with only the 5 or 6 rounds in their wheel gun, or think of using tactics such as "fire and maneuver" to a position of cover where you can have an opportunity to reload.

    Guilty as well...no spare ammo. Watch pocket is a great idea! How many times has ammo gone through the laundry? I am getting old and the memory is crap.

    I always have at least one reload on me. I'd rather have with me just in case...

    Hmm, no one's mentioned these yet .

    Saw them in G&A magazine a couple months ago. If I were carrying a revolver I'd invest in a pair, and a couple speedloaders as well.
    A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)

    Same here. I really like those speed strips...

    When I carry a revolver, it is fully loaded and I have two speed strips on me.

    The pictured package seems to be my new daily carry unless I need deep carry or go to the city.

    Five .357 in the SP101, five in the belt pouch with speed strip and five in the back pocket. God forgive if I have to use them.

    I tried speed loaders, defiantly faster but bulky for my daily carry.

    I like the color of your gear.

    Occasionally, I do carry my 38 stubby. When I do, I also carry at least 10 extra rds.

    I'm comfortable not carrying a reload when I carry a revolver.

    +1. I don't even think about going without a reload.
