    Wife having trouble loading mags

    We went out yesterday and bought a new M&P 9c for the wife's EDC. She has just received her LTC and after some range time chose the S&W. Today I told her to carry around the house, practices draw and basic pistol function, unloaded for now. Well she thought that I also meant loading and unloading the mags with ammo but she never loaded the weapon. Anyway her complaint was that it was very difficult and her fingers hurt. In frustration she says maybe we should have bought the revolver it was easier to load. I said your kidding right, let me ask the forum members for any tips on loading mags but I think your going to have to work on finger strength.

    They make mag loaders that help load mags easier,but as far as carrying she won't have to load mags all the time,besides that's why she married such a strong guy like you,It's somewhere in for richer poorer sickness health clause of contract

    get an UPLULA mag-loader...actually, buy two because you'll want one too after trying it.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Check out the LULA (might be under UPLULA) loader. I've tried them all, this is by far the best. My daughters can load my mags all day long. It works on everything from a slim 1911 to a fat Glock .45.

    Do a google search. I've seen huge price differences. I got mine on a "buy now" from fleabay for $18 shipped.

    Another vote for the UPLULA. It'll load everything from I believe .32 on up.

    I just Googled and looked like Midway had the cheapest price plus a $3.00 shipping. After I got all the way through the order process it turns out the $3.00 was a "special handling charge" and shipping was $13.00+!!!

    Uh here's a big New York, you're number ONE to you Midway. :(

    Anyone else find a cheap price for this?

    LOL, having never loaded a mag before, and my gun being brand new i lucked out and had the salesperson help me before i hit the range.

    Even now that the mags are broken in, i still have to struggle a bit to get the last round. The best technique for me so far has been put the round between your pointer finger and middle finger, and your thumb on top of the round.

    then push the bullet into the mag, but use your other hand to assist in pushing.


    the only thing i would worry about with a auto loader, is that its hard to get used to loading them by hand that way! I figure i will pick one up in a few months once loading by hand is a breeze.
