    Minimal home made speedloader carrier

    I call this the 'speed card'... I've been using this daily for the past month or so, it has worked out great. It's also really easy to make. I just bought a bag of leather scraps from my local craft store, glued two together with some leather glue, and cut it out with a razor knife. I made it to fit my 5-star loaders that go with my my 642, but even though the fit is not as good, it works just fine with the 6 round HK's for my Colt.

    I always try to make things from the starting point of 'what's the least amount of time/effort/materials that will accomplish the task. With this, the point is to keep the loaders in the same spot and high enough in the pocket for a quick grab. It works perfect for that, There is enough retention from just the leather between the rounds to hold it a little, but gravity and the fact that it's in your pocket does most of the work.

    This goes in my cargo pants pocket, and the 642 goes in a smart carry, That's my at-work system. I originally made this to fit a rounded jeans pocket, but it works fine in the square pocket, too.

    Neat idea, for sure.

    Would prolly work with a piece of Kydex, too..?

    I thought about kydex, which I like a lot, but for this I thought leather is better for this particular design, because it will kind of bend with your movement/pockets, less chance of seeing edges. I'm sure something kydex could work, but maybe different

    Yup.

    Plus, leather is gonna be a whole lot less forgiving on the hand, specially in a quick deployment scenario.

    That appears to be a very viable concept for your carry method/application.

    For a more conventional (belt) carry I have to recommend a design by Jeff Hays, made to my specifications. The fit is virtually perfect, being tight enough to prevent any juggling or loss, yet loose enough for extremely fast deployment as there is no covering on the loaders to fumble with on deployment.

    What a great idea. I have seen a similar design for belt carry. This is the first I've seen like this for pocket carry. Nice job. Be careful. leatherwork becomes almost as addictive as gun collecting!
