    I got a new Glock 19 and took it to the range a few days ago. Put 250 rounds through it. Great gun right out of the box. However I wasn’t impressed with the Glock speed mag loader that came with it. I got use to it but really don’t like it much. Can anyone suggest a better speed loader? I see lots of them advertised but don’t know which to choose.

    I second the UPLULA, it's absolutely fantastic.

    Make sure to obnoxiously mark your UpLula. They have a habit of walking off in your range partner's bag.

    Took me about 10 minutes to figure out how to use my UpLula :rofl:

    Now I fill my mags with ease.

    Mostly stock, just happy to have a truck.
    I used to follow the same “no need for a loader” mentality, then I got old and mags got tougher to load and some developed habits of biting, the uplula made me change my opinion, if you are on the fence remember buy once and cry once then enjoy.

    Uplula 100% effective at loading mags, comes in many colors and available in 22 Lr also for smaller mags. Don't leave home without it.

    Uplula was some of the best money I've spent. My thumb loves them.

    Best money I've spent in some time, 9mm and 45acp. I can knock out 5-600 rounds with no sore thumbs.

    Just got my UPLULA and 10 new magazines that I ordered. Can’t believe how easy and fast loading with the UPLULA is. I just ordered 2 more so I will keep one in my range bag, one in my truck and one at home. Thanks all for the suggestion. I now don’t leave home without my uppy (as I refer to it)

    Uplula FTW, they also make a single stack adapter for 1911, P220, etc
