    I realy enjoy carrying my GP100, but would like to have a little more than 6rds. on me. I know speed loaders exist, but have no experience with them at all. So, a few questions:
    Do they work well, and are they worth carrying?
    Can I get a holster/pouch of some sort to keep it on my belt?
    What brands should I consider or steer away from, or what features should I look for?

    HKS speedloaders work well. They have a shorter shaft/knob than others, permitting them to be a little more discreet on the belt.

    HKS makes different models for the various cylinder sizes onguns. Lookup the GP100 on their website, or read the back of the packages on the display at the store.

    Get some dummy cartridges for your revolver caliber, six of them. Then test the speedloaderat the store if you can.I understand some small-frame revolvers have a problem wherethe side of the speedloader, the part that actually holds the cartridges, rubs the grip just enough to throw the long axis of the cartidges out of line with the chambers, requiring an extra jiggle or two to get the cartridges into the chambers. In that the HKS speedloader is pretty thin at this point anyway, they couldn't really make it any thinner. A GP100 grip and cylinder may have better clearance thana small frame revolver.

    DeSantis makes some nice speedloader pouches. I very much like them because your belt passes through the center of the pouch, rather than a loop on the back. This allows, and expects, that 2-3 cartridges will ride on the inside of your belt and the rest outside. Thus the pouch doesn't sag away from your belt. It rides in nice and close. Look on their website for "Second Six" pouches. Be prepared to pay for this nicety. I think they run about $25 each.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    They're not as fast, but Bianchi Speed Strips for .38 Spl./.357 Mag. conceal very well. If you've got a K-frame, you can reload 2 at a time. I usually carry one in my left front trouser pocket & another in my left shirt pocket whether I'm carrying OC or CC.

    I have developed a variety of solutions for the revolver shooter. They're just neglected by the big companies!
