Speed Loaders

Discussion in 'General Firearms Forum' started by Victoriagotagun, Aug 17, 2012.

  1. I was trying to organize my safe last night when I noticed that I have a few brands of different speed loaders and that made me wonder how many are actually out there.

    So, am I missing any on the list?

    -Safariland
    -HKS
    -SL Speed loader
    -5 Star
    -Jet loader
    -Maxfire

    I did not know they were that many. I have only used HKS.

    I can't see any reason to own any brand OTHER than HKS.

    I've been using them for 35+ years, and I'm still using some of the original ones I bought all those years ago.

    I'm the same way with Safariland speedloaders. I still use some that I bought for my first issue wheelgun right after I got out of the LE academy.

    I bet there are still some Dade speedloaders in PPC.

    I forget the brand, but an early, early speedloader was a rubber cone that worked like a circular Speed Strip, start the rounds into the cylinder and peel the loader away.

    Got it, that was the Hunt Speedloader.

    Rather than start a new thread, I'd figured I'd glom onto this one with my question...does anyone know of any speedloaders for a .44 N-frame S&W other than the HKS 29 or Safariland Comp 1?
     
  8. I plan on getting a set of safariland to see how they compare to the HKS.

    HKS and Safariland Comp's are the only I have actually seen in person. I use HKS, simple and functional. I carry one in a pouch up front when I carry my jframe on my belt.

    I used to be an HKS person until I tried a Safariland speed loader. Push in and loaded. No need to stop the cylinder from turning or use two hands.

    Do they still shoot PPC? When I competed, I used nothing but Dades.

    I bought some when they had just started out and were called 3D Inc. Excellent quality and it's a real eye-candy.

    I used to have some Dade 'screw' speedloaders (when I shot PPC.)
    Nothing like pulling them from the holder, and dumping 6 rounds onto the dirt/rocks!!!!!!:steamed: :wow:

    Since then, I use only HKS speedloaders!

    I had a couple of Dades, but I only used them to "Load six rounds and holster." because they were easy to fill and saved my Safarilands for the reloads.
