    Bianchi speed strips. Fits in my change pocket (never put anything else in there). I usually cary 2 strips, 1 with 158g JHP and another with 158g Flat Nose just in case the terminator is after me.

    2X2 pouch and usually HKS speedloader. 2X2 for partial reloads, speedloader for full reload.

    A HKS Speedloader or a Moon Clip depending on which type of revolver you carry.

    It depends upon which revolver. For all except the SP101: HKS speed loaders, plus, perhaps, a speed strip and/or 2x2x2 belt carrier.

    The SP101 factory grip tends to cause speed loaders to bind, so I skip that option. The grip mitigates magnum recoil so well that I will not grind off any of the material. If an SP101 is the biggest gun I am carrying, I will generally carry at least another SP101, which lessens the urgency of speed-loading.

    If I am only going to carry one SP101, for whatever reason, I will carry a speedloader, but with shorter .38 Special ammo, which allows clearance for the speedloader.

    Depending on how I am dressed, I either carry a speed strip in a Most Versatile Pouch from Simply Rugged or a HKS speedloader in a Split Six pouch from Safariland.

    Without question. No matter what I'm carrying, I'll have a minimum of 2 reloads on my person. Extra magazines are especially critical when carrying a semi-auto, in case of a jam or malfunction. I carry 2 speed loaders with any revolver, and even with my SA's I carry a dump pouch or speed strips. I also have another cache of ammo in the center console of my vehicle for a couple of calibers.:cool:

    My truck has a 50rnd flip box under each rear seat , the wifes truck has a 100rnd flip box in the rear storage compartment .

    this is all 357 mag ! , now think of makeing it 38spec. since it loads easier under stress .

    12 rounds in a belt loop that slides on my belt. Been loading a revolver one or two rounds at a time for most of my life. Hate to have to change and learn a new way this late in time.

    All my reload ammo is stored in speed strips, though I seldom carry one on my person.

    Speed strips, tuff strips, speed loaders, and a box of ammo in the truck. Which is on my person depends on how I'm dressed and where I'm going.

    Just one speed strip normally, I carry it in my right front pocket. I am right handed and switch hands with my revolver during reloading.

    Never heard that before. I have heard that bullet shape matters, and it does, but not a difference between .38 and .357.

    That said I carry a couple of of .357s loaded with .357 and a .38. (Not necessarily all at the same time) All my spare ammo is .38 so I don't have worry about grabbing the wrong speedloader on my way out of the house, and if I am carrying the .38 as a BUG, the ammo will work in either gun.

    Call me crazy...I don't carry any spare ammo for my CCW...Yeah, I've got both speedloaders and speed strips, but carry neither. I keep them loaded in my safe door pouch just in case I need to grab on quick at the house, which is unlikely...I keep two loaded wheel guns in my safe for easy grabbing if I need them.

    I don't carry spare ammo on me either. If I can't get it done with seven shots then it probably ain't gonna get done.

    The Bushmaster,
    I sure would like to see a picture of the belt loop. I just don't like speed strips, and speedloaders are too bulky.

    I'm with you Walking Dead...I go out with the mindset that if the time comes, I had better make the first one or two rounds count.
