As a southpaw, I've been trying to figure out an more effective way to use a DA revolver. I particular, how to reload quickly. I've tried both the HKS speed loaders and stripper clips. The only handy way is to pass the revolver to my right hand, open the cylinder, go through the process, then pass it back to my left hand. It's just slow for me. And yea, I should learn to shoot it right handed, and I will someday, but I'm strongly left handed. I might suggest you righty tighties, give it run loading your DA from the other hand for a practice drill. Now the SA revolver is a different story. With the loading gate on the right, it's a natural for a lefty. Punch out the spent brass and strip in some fresh rounds with my right hand and I'm good to go. It goes rather quickly and smoothly for a lefty. So the question is, why isn't the loading gate for SA revolvers on the left side to accommodate the 85% of the population??
