    I carry my speedloaders in mace cases. The shortest mace cases Uncle Mike makes. Each case holds two speedloaders one on top the the other. The same mace cases will hold three loaded 45 Moonclips.

    Uncle Mike used to make the generic cordura double speedloader cases. HKS also makes the rubberized speedloader cases too.

    HKS works just fine for me. I believe that I have a couple of the spring loaded ones for my Colt D-frame but I can't remember who the manufacturer was, I don't think it was Safariland.

    Safarilands work well if you train with them. They have a springloaded rod and you literally just jam the rounds into the cylinder, the base has the rod hit the ejector star and releases the rounds. VERY fast.

    I used HKS's myself, but i've tried the Safarilands enough to know they're good.

    I think Blade-tech makes Kydex speedloader carriers. Comp-Tac may as well.

    What are we talking about: Speedloaders, themselves, or speedloader pouches?

    Safariland, 'Comp II' are the best speedloaders. (I own dozens of them.) Matt Del Fatti makes the best, 'Split-The-Belt' speedloader pouches on Planet Earth.


    I only use HKS, 'twist-type' speedloaders for my Ruger SP-101. Why? Because Safariland doesn't offer a speedloader model for the small Rugers.

    My favorite is the Slimloader pouch from Andrew's Gunleather. I have been using one for years and it works great. A bit pricy but nice.

    It is listed in the Magazines section.

    A split-six pouch like Arc Angel shows works very well. Aside from being compact, a benefit of this design is that when accessing the speedloader you are grabbing the body of the loader, not the top. With the Safariland comp II (which I also prefer) no further manipulation is neccessary to position the loader to insert into the cylinder.
