I love my S&W 442 but with it only holding 5 rounds it makes me feel like I'm not carrying enough ammo in case of a worst case scenario. So what's the easiest way to carry a reload for it? Keep inmind that I normally wear T shirt and jeans since 9 months out of the year it's over 85* here. I know about the traditional reloaders but I think that they would be hard to carry/conceal, is there an alternative?

I saw some rubber strips, kinda like a stripper clip, for pocket carry. I can't remember where but they looked pretty stout compared to what I've seen before. They are in a line so they lay flat in your pocket unlike a speedloader.

Dillon Precision used to sell them. I just did a quick scan of their site and they are hidden pretty good if they are still there!

Greetings.
I was going to recommend the same thing.
Check this out:speed strips
I wouldn't call it a speed loader, but it will hold the cartridges.
Take care

I realize you didn't intentionally dupe my thread and my title didn't contain the word 'revolver' although it was posted in the 'revolver' forum.

Anywho...

I went ahead and orderd the Bianchi Speed Strips referenced above and Dillon Precision sells a neet little wallet for them too.

What's the easiest way to carry/conceal extra ammo when carrying a pocket revolver?




A second gun!

I just keep two speedloaders in a belt pouch at 8:00-9:00 under the loose shirt that also covers my CCW piece.
