NOTICE:
To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

The Safariland Comp 1 Speedloader is a very sweet concealed carry reload option for the S&W J Frame

In the comments of an earlier blog entry, a kindred gunslinging blogger, Comrade Misfit, suggested that I try Safariland Speedloaders for concealed carry.  So, I bought three Safariland Comp 1 speedloaders for my S&W J Frames.  I practiced with them ... I carried them ...  and I found that I liked this speedloader design a whole lot!  






No conflict between the speedloader and the grips on this J Frame S&W






On YouTube, I found several tutorials on how to use the Comp 1; IMHO the video above is the best.

I’m also a fan of Safariland speedloaders and use them for my Smith & Wessons. I find them to be more intuitive and faster to use than the HKS type, which are rather awkward for me.

Dunno why I never tried them before ... it could be that I never once found them offered at any of our local gun stores ...

Live and learn, I guess.
