    Have been using the Maglula magazine loader for quite a while and am always a bit surprised by people who've never heard of them and have not seen them. Thought I'd do a video showing how to use them with close ups of how exactly they work.

    Hope some find this helpful.

    The Glock mag loader works well for me. I must be the 1%.

    I could only imagine how much I would shoot if I had one. The only reason I ever quit shooting is because my fingers get tired. That would turn a typical 4 box session into 10 or 15 boxes. I think I better not.

    For me, too.

    But the UpLula is just a lot faster & easier.

    I have been lurking around for one of these.

    I used to just use my hands, never even thought about anything else. Bought an AA conversion for my G23 and was having a tough time with the small cartridges and loading a 25 round mag. Got the loader that came with the kit and have use it and my loader for the 23 ever since. Sure does make it easier on your hands when you are shooting 500 to 1000 rounds at a time.

    He-man types.

    Actually if you aren't shooting enough in one session, Or if you are not putting the full capacity in the mags, then you are not going to wear out the thumbs, and don't need a loader.

    I like the Uplula, but the Glock piece works great but slower. The uplula is nice because it works on other double stacks too.

    If you have a subcompact, 30, 26, 27, 29, these are a godsend, as the mag fills.

    Amsdorf, thanks for making the video and posting it at Glock Talk.

    In the many dozens of Hickok45 Glock videos I've viewed over the months and years, to the best of my recollection he never once used a mag loader while on screen to reload the pistol mags.

    Imagine my utter amazement when I was watching a recent Hickok45 video and, lo and behold, he was using an UpLULA™ to load his 45ACP mag. I shouted out loud at the screen, "IT'S ABOUT TIME, HICKOK!"

    Maybe Greg Hickok has used an UpLULA for some time, but it's good that he finally is giving some publicity to this terrific, time-saving tool.

    UPDATE: Hickok45 made a new video featuring the UpLULA and posted it on his YouTube channel on April 3, 2012. A viewer sent him one and he obviously has become a big fan of the nifty little device.

    Hey Jolly. Although it is useful to use a mag loader, there are plenty of folks that can load many rounds in one session without one. I dont think it has anything to do with strength for the most part. Rather in the way one loads magazine.

    I find this very helpful, thank you for posting it! I have considered the larger 30rd clips but I dreaded the idea of loading them until now!
