Colleene Answers Questions is a new series of videos intended to address both common and directly asked questions from viewers and those who frequent my Keeping the Piece Facebook page. Some questions may come from the comment sections on other videos. If you would like to ask me a question, please comment below or stop by the Facebook and post one there.
Today's question comes from N.W. on YouTube as a private message. She wants to know any tricks I might have for loading magazines. So we'll discuss and demonstrate both single stacks and double stack magazines in this video.
I did make mention of the Maglula Uplula Magazine Speed Loader, which you can view on their website at this link: maglula.com/product-category/pistol-mag-loaders/9-to-45-pistol-loader/
You can also see a great review of this product at this link: youtube.com/watch?v=l3U3OHmGtiY
There is no "stupid" question when it comes to guns, self defense, and concealed carry. Most of the time when a question is asked, there are others wondering about the same exact thing. So, why not let everyone benefit from the answers to your questions. That's what we'll strive to do in this series.
I will only call the person by name if directly asked on YouTube, or if permission is given in email or via phone call/Facebook post. Otherwise, I will use a first name, or no name at all.

My gun is a M&P 2.0 9m compact. I use the mag uplula loader. My hands don't have the strength, yet! But, I am not giving in, as I love the double stacks. Thank you.
It is the summer of 2016, you're on top of your game, as usual. But something is missing....the braces. Hallelujah! Nice looking results, those pearly whites. If you have a multi-$$ manicure, does it help to don some gloves before manually reloading those problematic magazines, or wrestling a semi-auto pistol in any case. Take a look at an empty magazine for a PA-63. Check that little flag that stands out proud, which operates the slide lock back lever. I sliced my thumb open one day at the range with that little piece of sheet metal while trying to reload at the lane. The RO's thought I had shot myself, with all the blood.
Thanks for making me feel so much better about myself! ;) I have a really hard time with the P938 mag, and I thought I was just being a wimp. I've considered getting the uplula, just not sure I want to fork over $40 for a one-use tool. A video/review would be great, Colleene

Upula magazine loaders are worth their weight in Gold. If it were not for them, I might own all revolvers. I have arthritis in hands too.
I like the idea of using the Uplula for long sessions. If I need to do an emergency reload of a magazine, it's nice to know I can do it because I didn't wear my thumbs down to a nub last range session(8-). Hey, I don't want my pals givin' me nicknames like "Thumbkin or Thumbleena...or Nubs...Mommy didn't raise a fool(8-). More seriously...many manufacturers pack a mag loader in the case with a new semi auto pistol. None I ever messed with was very complicated to use...

great vid! it was a interesting time the other day for me... i was out shooting with a friend, and she loaded my ranch rifle 30 round mag by hand as fast as i loaded one using a speed loader
Great tips. I confess to using a loader, though. :)
Argue for your limitations, and sure enough theyre yours.
UpLula for the win! best speed loader out there.
MagLula UpLula loader on ebay . Worth its weight in gold. It saved my thumbs.
I have a Springfield XD9mod2, - 12 round mag double stack (3 of those), and the extended mag is 16 rounds. I have a tough time after I get about 8 loaded. I can do it, and now that the gun is four months old it's gotten easier (about 1000 rounds shot through it), but I need a hard surface for those last few, or I press the butt end of the mag to my diaphragm. I also have pressure sensitive skin (coined by my pediatrician decades ago) that blisters and gets irritated easily. For that reason more than the muscle needed to load the mags at the range, I use an UpLULA. If I don't, the skin on my index finger (that presses against the top flanges on the magazines) is sore and peels the next day. Weird, I know! So for dry firing at home, I load the snaps by hand on the coffee table since I'm not loading as much as I do on the range.

I bought my GF an MagLula Uplula magazine loader. Probably the best gift she ever got from me! LOL
