I freaking love this tool. It is WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!... And I don't say that often.

I have to admit, I was on the fence about this purchase. A reloading tool is just not a necessity. I have a thumb, (Actually 2) and have hand loaded mags by hand for years. If I am in the field or on the street, they are always with me. After first seeing the UpLula used on some YouTube videos, and then doing some investigative research, checking the Factory web site, & others. I decided to try one out. AND let me tell you....This has to be one of the BEST new little gadgets I have ever had, as a shooting tool! It truly takes all the stress of hand loading your magazines away! This thing is freaking awesome! It EASILY loads my double stack, 9mm mags and single stack .380's. But I do have to manually add the last round into the single stack mag. because of it's shorter design. No big deal! It is actually fun to use. When my wife and I are at the range. One shoots, while one reloads. She has always had trouble loading the magazines. Now we look forward to both!
After reading the instructions, it takes a few times using it to train your hand motions, but it is simple and easy to master. The Uplula also comes with a built in bullet extractor. Yes... when you have to manually unload those tightly packed mags., you simply use a tab that helps shuck out the rounds. The grip is made of a thick, durable polymer plastic. It is light weight, (Bright colored) and also has a small split ring attached at its base for using with an optional 1911 single stack adapter. (I plan to tie a lanyard to it, so it doesn't fall far from my range bag and get lost.) The loader does come is a variety of colors. I started to go with the standard black, but ended up choosing the brighter YELLOW color, so I can find it quickly and easily, either in my range bag or on the bench. There is also a small, built in, lock. This allows you to squeeze the loader shut and lock it into place for compact storage in your gear bag.
If you are a casual shooter, are a competition shooter, or in Law Enforcement, this loader will change your life and save your sore thumbs!
I HIGHLY recommend the Maglula brand, UpLULA model pistol magazine loader! I love it so much, I plan to purchase more of these as gifts for family and friends. They are relatively inexpensive, but worth every penny you will spend! They are fun and super easy to use (a kid could use it). Come in a wide variety of colors. And they offer other model loaders for pistols and rifles too!
P.S. The seller had the factory product at a great price, and I got it just 2 days.
