Tuff Speedloaders – Quickstrip

Two Quickstrips and a HKS speed loader.

A brother-in-arms discovered these speed loaders from Tuff Products.  I was rather tired of my HKS speed loaders, so I purchased my Quickstrips from Brownells for my five shot .38 Special Taurus M85.

Sold in packs of two, these “flexible polymer holder keeps extra rounds of spare ammo at the ready for fast reloads.” They’re available for several pistol, rifle and shotgun cartridges.

Though Tuff Products manufactures a five round Quickstrip, I wanted the extra quarter inch, or so, with a six round Quickstrip for better tangibility.  Whether or not if it makes a difference; I don’t know.

Easy to load, easy to conceal.  With training, you can get pretty fast, too!  I particularly like them when I wear suits; I have one in my pant pocket and the other in the jacket.

    Like ’em. Also bought the 6 rounders, even though they will mostly be used with my 442 or Mrs. Drang’s LCR, I also wanted the extra quarter inch, and I may use them with my Model 10.

    I also like the fact that Tuff Products makes them in a wide assortment of calibers, unlike Bianchi, which just made .38s. I can get these in .44 for my Blackhawk, or .45 and use them with my 625 when shooting .45 Autorim.
