[5 of 5 Stars!]Great little speedloaders that travel compactly in my strong hand front pocket. Using speedloaders was something that I thought I'd given up permanently after the agency that I'd worked for went to semi-autos as the issued weapon, some 20 years ago. Now retired, I have a J Frame that goes everywhere when my attire won't conceal the print of a semi-auto.
It can be tricky and can feel very awkward until the technique of loading a weapon using speedloaders is repeated a few times. I'd imagine that there's probably even videos online that demonstrate the proper techniques of using speedloaders to reload a revolver cylinder. These can also be a bit tricky to load up rounds into and I would recommend practicing a few times loading and securing rounds in it and also using them to reload a weapon. I find these very efficient and can even reload the speedloaders themselves with more rounds while walking to my next course of fire. I do have a couple of friends that prefer the twist knob speedloaders and those are also fine, but these Safariland are the very compact and the best choice for me.

[1 of 5 Stars!]Piece of junk. All plastic, feels flimsy. It locks up tight with some effort, but doesn't release smoothly. Takes two hands and some really firm pressure to release. Decent ammo holder, but more or less worthless as a speed loader.
