    I have researched this (simply out of curiosity) as to what percentage of CCW Holders carry speed-loaders for their respective revolvers as opposed to that very same question pertaning to semi-auto carriers and magazines? The only people that I personally know that use a revolver do so for either solely HD or in the case of my Uncle as a BUG absent a spare speed-loader (his primary CCW piece is a Sigma). I do know from the videos I have seen that there are some extremely proficient speed-loaders out there that make it seem as seamless as a semi-auto mag change. I have thought about revolvers for some time in a CCW capacity but always knew I would have to acclimate and become competent with the revolver reload (certainly not mandatory but would help provide that peace-of-mind).

    By the way, I carry almost always a P11 (either 1or2 spare mags) but if not it's a full size semi in what we used to call Winter of which never came this year here in the "Show Me State." In fact, we had what I call an extended Fall of which in my forty years on Mother Earth I have never seen:confused:--Come to think of it, I might have carried my PT-92 or 1911 this 'Winter' less than a dozen times since Thanksgiving.
