    Ripcord speedloaderl

    I saw a video on the Ripcord Speed loader for 5 or 6 round 38/357 revolvers. Had to get some but I had not purchased my Taurus 605 yet! They come in a 2 pack for $10.
    They do have a learning curve. Had to view the CK Tactical video to do it right. So far I like them.
    Cheap enough to give a try.......

    Interesting. Let us know how they work. They look faster than speed strips and easier than traditional speed loaders.
    The only disadvantages I see are that they are as hard to pocket conceal as traditional speed loaders plus there is the additional concern of the latch possibly letting go while it's in your pocket. Hopefully they latch securely enough that it won't happen.

    I see a lot of videos where the revolver's grip gets in the way a bit when using a regular speed loader, requiring the shooter to jiggle it around to load the rounds. This looks much thinner in diameter and I wonder if that helps to alleviate that issue. For me, I just use a speed strip but would be interested in these if they don't have an issue with the grips getting in the way.

    The price is right, compared to traditional speed loaders and they are probably flexible enough to fit in the pocket better.

    You know, swapping magazines is much quicker.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    Meh, I'll keep my speed strips. They might be a little slower, but I'll get to cover before I need 'em. AND, speed strips are flat, so they're easier to carry. It is an interesting option, though, and I'd think they might be a little faster than fumbling with HKS speed loaders.

    Yeah, but they don't make them for any of my revolvers

    So, have you guys had problems with the push-type Safariland speedloaders?
