    Revolver Extra Ammo Carriers....

    I'd like to hear from you revolver guys what you're using and who makes it. I am well aware of some of the options, but haven't a clue who to buy. Some of you use speedloaders and some dump pouches.....Most of you seasoned vets have reasons why you use what you do. I'd love to hear them. Thanks.....Sandpiper

    Cool

    Speed strips and HKS speed loaders.

    Speed strips because they fit in my jeans watch pocket. Takes a bit of practice and Massad Ayoob has a video on using them.

    HKS speed loaders because I used them back in the 80's on the job before we went to semi-autos. Fast and easy to use and carried in a split six holder by Safariland.

    Same as above Speed strips (which are not "speedy" but are faster than loading lose rounds) because they are easy to carry and give you the option of doing a tactical reload.

    And HKS speed loaders because they work so well

    I carry a quick strip made by TUFF. As stated above, nothing quick about them. When I am worried about a quick reload, I carry 2 revolvers.

    ...as a backup...I carry a 649 .38Sp...and 4 speed strips...(Midway's shipping me Tuffstrips brand @ 2/5.99...I've used them in .44 and they're great...almost identical product as the Bianchi)...what I like about the strips is you can load them two at a time...and among all my .38/.357 revolvers...just grab some strips...they work in any of them...even made in 7-shot strips for those with high capacity revolvers...

    I have pouches that can tote the HKS speed loaders kept here but most often have kept one in a pocket if I felt it was needed. In the last few years I've mostly adopted the speed strips for a needed reload.

    Pockets, speed strips don't need anything special like mags or speedloaders.

    I use a 2 x 2 x 2 dump pouch. I would like to use some Bianchi speedloader carriers, the ones that put the speedloader on top of your belt so that it doesn't stick out as far.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    When I'm carrying my 442, I have a speed strip in a pocket. When I'm carrying the 327 PD, I have two of these with full moon clips:

    I carry two Bianchi speed strips in the side of my Kangaroo Carry Air Marshall 3 holster. Two strips fit perfectly in the provided compartment.
