HOW IN THE WORLD CAN YOU LIVE WITHOUT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay now that the yelling is done, I got this because of the 17 round magazines on my 9mm CX4 Storm. After a single session at the range, those magazines beat me down like a Mike Tyson hook. I never worried about single stack mags, but those doubles get a little rough in a session at the range.
Youtube shows a couple people who are very efficient in using the loader. I broke no records but the ease of use and saving of the thumb pad makes it very worthwhile. This model loads 9mm through 45. I donít know about the others but the single stack on my Springfield EMP or the double stack on my CX4 is no challenge at all for an extended range session.
Yes itís this easy...

I've been introducing people to these for years now! I wrote a review back in 07 (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=317415&highlight=maglula).

From 2007 to now (5 years) I've loaded tens of thousands of rounds into multiple types of magazines and my LULA loader has been out under every imaginable weather condition. Still works like a charm!

Are you still using the original one that you bought? Has it held up since 07?

Yes, still the original from 07. I do blow it out with compressed air every now and then when it's dusty out.

It's expensive, but man, does it speed up the reloads! Saves your thumbs, and magazine lips. What's not to like about them?

It's about the same $ as a box of .45acp.....and lasts a lot longer!

I bought my MagLula when I was living up in Fairbanks. Not only does it make reloading a bit easier, but it also avoids the whole frostbite issue you get reloading at -40

Highly recommended.

I have two for 9mm up and two for 380 down or the baby. One is the original name Mag UP Lula while the other is the Butler creek one both are the same. The other two are Baby Up Lula and work well for single stack mags. My wife has one of each in her range bag the same as I do.

...two for 380 down...

The 9mm and up model actually works for at least some .380 mags. I use it for loading 13-rd BDA mags. I was about to order the smaller model then decided to at least try the bigger one before popping the CC again. Voila!

Don't know if it would work for single stack 380 mags; kind of doubt it just based on the size of its interior.
