How to use the speed strip

In my K6S box was a speed strip. Gave up after 15 mins as was easer just to load by hand.
What is the trick????

Load the round from the strip 2 at a time and peel off the strip. With a little practice you can get pretty fast. I didn't like speed strips at first, but now I'm good with them.

Where would you order more? Thinking a strip of snake shot handy would be nice.

Check for Bianchi/Safariland speed strips.

Heck of alot easier to carry in your pocket then a couple of Speed Loaders. Could you imagine carrying 2 Speed Loaders vs Speed Strips?

Gun store, Bass Pro, Cabelas, maybe even Walmart, Midway, Brownells, almost any place selling guns and stuff.

Speed strips are the best for topping off a revolver during a skirmish.

I bought a pair of speed strips for mine, that I keep Hornady Critical Defense .38 spcl +P FTX loads in... which is also what I CCW in the revolver around town. I also bought a pair of speedloaders that I keep heavy .357 mag loads in for when I'm fishing or hiking in wild animal country here in MT. I have 180 HSM "bear loads" for that, but I will carry my S&W 329PD .44 mag loaded with 305 grain HSM bear loads when in serious griz country here.

Anyways... I bought my K6s new from a reputable dealer here, but there was no speed strip in my Kimber box.
