    Baby Lula and G42 - do they make a good pair?

    So: We are old and weak. Not the end of the world, but at the point where we both need some "aids". I AM talking about shooting aids.............

    I know a lot of you use the Lula loader for magazines, but the regular one only specifies 9MM and up. I found this one: Butler Creek .22-.380 Caliber Baby LULA Universal Pistol Loader and Unloader

    BUT when you read the fine print it has quite a list of guns with which it will NOT work. Not listed is my new Glock 42.

    Out of over 500 review on Amazon I could find only one (OK I didn't read ALL the reviews, but quite a lot of them) that talked bout a G42 and that person said it didn't work. However, we all know that there are a lot of people who can't figure how to get the cap off of a beer bottle, let alone push a lever on a new device........so I am discounting that poorly written review.

    Question is: Does anyone have one of these baby Lula loaders AND a G42? If so, should I buy one?

    As always - thanks in advance for your help with my many questions!

    We use a regular full size double stack uplula on TCP's 7 shot 380 mags . Once you use it a couple times you get it and away you load.

    I tried the baby lula and it is too thin for the G42's mags. The Up Lula works fine. I have it.

    THANK YOU FOR THE SPECIFIC REPLIES!!!! Much appreciated.

    We went to the range Sunday and our friend had the regular size UpLula. It did work with my 42 mags, so that is what I'll get. Phoned one of our LGS's and they said they have an off brand for less than half the price, but I'm sort of thinking I should get the Lula since it has been tried and tested by so many over extended periods of time.

    THANKS AGAIN!!!!
