Am I the only one who likes "speed" loaders?

    I absolutely love my Uplula.

    I shoot a .45 and a 9mm, I have big strong hands with no pain and can load my magazines easily... But the Uplula is so fast, it's no comparison.

    I personally hate the Glock loaders, tried a few times, never got them to work well for me, went back to hand loading until I got my Uplula.

    As well, I pay for range time by the hour, so I'm not into wasting time on the line.

    I never cared for them for pistol mags. There is a AR15 mag loader that I used years ago when shooting with a friend and can't find now. It fit on top of the mag, you dumped 10 loose rounds in and push the button and bam they were loaded in half a second.

    I did have a P226 mag that was a pill to load the 12th round in, I did use a speed loader for it. After a while it no longer gave me problems.

    I use a speed loader at the range... just about every mag I load up. It's so much easier, and less painful on my fingers.

    Once you start using the Uplula you get so spoiled that you dont want to load
    by hand ever..

    UpLula for pistol mags and .223s are sooooo easy to use and fast. My first were ~18.00 and now up to ~26.00. Well worth the price. I have three, one for the reloading bench, one in the "office" and one in the truck for anyone to try out. With care, you can reload most single stack mags with these.

    Interesting. Nobody has ever given me grief about using my UpLula Mag Loader. In fact just the opposite has happened on many occasions!

    A seriously overpriced UpLULA is one of the most useful pistol shooting tools I own. While I continue to think that plastic couldn't possibly be worth that much, ($35-$40.00) nothing else I've ever tried could load a pistol magazine that easily or fast. I own 3 of them; but, I rarely pick one up without thinking to myself: 'I got 'a be paying for the technology because it sure ain't in the plastic!' ;)

    My UpLULA is perfect for putting 17 rounds in a Glock mag fast and easy.

    I don't think I've ever heard anyone complain about any speed loader. Anyone who says they enjoy hand loading a high capacity mag by hand needs to have there head examined.
