@Lineman1982 thank you. It’s worked well for me for a while now. Sometimes my 642 is a “stand-alone” gun, other times it’s carried as a back-up to something bigger.

The Tuff Products Quickstrips have really been a winner for me.

I hope I never need it.
It has sent over 3,000 rounds downrange and spent about 24,000 hours on my hip. Even so, there are many times I realize it's not there. If I ever need it, I hope it's there. If I need it, and it is there, 5 will have to be enough.

I don't practice fast drawing, drawing from concealment or speed reloading . I practice having a gun whenever possible. And, in that regard, I know I'm better prepared than the vast majority of people who could be carrying.

Very nice.

Just took off this: custom .44 Special, built from a Model 28, with 3" barrel. Line bored and extremely accurate. Wearing a set of Deacon's grips and carried in a Gould and Goodrich semi-shoulder holster. Backed by two Tuff Strips holding 250 grain Keith SWC's over 7.5 grains Unique. Skeeters load an no need to change.

Strips are the way for pocket carry. One of my j frames has boot grips and a speedloader won't approximate to the cylinder anyway. But I carry a 442 with Speer Gold Dots...almost every day, especially in summer.
Appreciate the info. Don’t think I would carry a speedloader. The strips look like the way to go. I will have to check out the Speer Gold Dots. I also got this for summer carry in Texas.
