Need Micro 9 Speedloader Recommendation

After going to the range the first time and reloading my three magazines, twice, my old man fingers hurt bad.

So I am in the market for a speedloader to ease the pain!

Do you have any recommendations based on YOUR experience? I have looked at the MakerShot (~$12.50) and the Uplula (~$25.00). I have read that the Uplula needs some sort of centering piece, at extra cost, for single row mags. True or not?

Thanks in advance!

Mark

Not true. The Uplula are great. I have two, one for 9mm and larger, the other for my wifeís .380.

I use the Uplula, and it works great on all of my pistols. Except my .22

I resisted the Uplula purchase for some time, but my geezer fingers felt like yours.....tender and sore after loading about ten mags worth at the range for my Micro 9 or any of my 1911's.

I use the Uplula model that allows both 9mm and .45 and now wonder what made me wait so long. They are one of those little thingies that actually WORK!

Upvote for the uplula. I didnít think Iíd actually use it as much as I do, but some mag springs are a chore to work with.

I recommend the Uplula and the single stack option. Don’t know how I loaded mags without it.

Not only much easier on the fingers and thumbs, but much faster too. Less time loading and more time shooting!

Agree on the Uplula. I made fun of my wife for needing one.... she started making fun of me when i kept stealing it at the range. She put one in my stocking this year.

Gentlemen with big, strong hands (and ladies, too) often end up with cuts, abrasions, and blisters just from day-to-day activities. A loader can help minimize discomfort and getting blood all over your magazines. And even the best can get sore hands from loading hundreds of rounds. Loaders can make your shooting a more joyous experience. I like the UpLula. And Mrs. Iron liked mine so much that I bought here one in a pretty girl color. It doesn't work well on my .32s. But on a .32, they're not really needed.
