    as in a revolver.

      However, a single action revolver can only usually fire six times before you have to reload it.  ;)

      As we've seen from many of these mass casualty events, the reload period is when they get the perp.

      I personally think that a speed loader is not necessary for anything outside of very specific shooting events OR law enforcement/military purposes.

      Just my opinion, YMMV

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

        murdering lunatics almost always carry TWO handguns.

        I'm thinking a murdering lunatic may find a speed loader "necessary":

        With this in mind, let's take a look at a few combat-reloading techniques.

        Revolvers:
        When I entered law enforcement in the mid-1970s, the speed loader was a fairly new device. In the academy, we were still instructed on how to load from dump pouches, which was a perilous endeavor at best.

        The speed loader corrected this problem and made reloading the revolver a much simpler task. This device lets you load all of the revolver's chambers at once, giving the wheel gun a reloading capability similar to that of a semiauto pistol. Carrying a revolver for police service and not having at least two to three speed loaders to recharge it is, well, less than wise.
