My safariland opens up in my pocket every time I carry it. It's a 5 shot 38/357. Anyone know of an sp101 reloader that doesn't do this?

I have used HKS speed loaders for many years.  Safariland speed loaders have been problematic for me in the past too.

once upon a time I carried a SW442 in a fanny pack with HKS speed loaders... not as tight as a pocket, but never had a problem with them... switched to Bianchi style speed strips to reduce bulk

My experience is the direct opposite I have had hks open up while carrying but never a safariland

I use the SL Variant, from http://www.bobmacs.com They are currently out of stock.

With the LCR, I also carry Quick Strip loaded with 4 rounds.

Yeah, I use those too sometimes and I think I may go back to them.

Well mine is the opposite yet.  I've never had an HKS open on me.  I've been carrying one for about 2-3 years now.  I do also carry a speedstrip on me though.

Yes.

S.L. Variant. German made. Available in a large variety of revolvers. Adjustable spread of bullets. Each cartridge is individually sprung. I have carried this loader for more than two years and not once has it lost a cartridge. You do need to clean out the lint from time to time.

Bob Macs has them. Go ahead and order if back ordered. Only way I have found to get them.

I do not work for or personally know Mr. Macs but have been satisfied with his service.

I have no issues with the HKS line in python, k frames and N frames so far.  

The Safariland ones I got from a guy on cast boolits were trash(ed).   I can't say the design is junk but they didn't work for me but were well used and weakly held anything.

Well I recently picked up a near new S&W model 28-2 and have only the one speedloader that was in the shop.   I will pick up at least one to try out, the HKS one is a tight squeeze with the original Magna grips on it.  I hate to think what it'd be like with target grips.

ETA- well so much for the N frame plan, they don't support them unless you're with the .44's.

On the 28 that's what I'm finding, it's kind of like a semi controlled drop.....I am releasing with just the noses in the mouths of the chambers.   Not a high speed way to go.   I suspect I'll pick up some Hogues for it.
