I carry more speedloaders​ than you do, so relax. I go with at least two, often four and as many as seven. It's AWESOME that you have taken the time to figure out what works for you instead of just saying it doesn't work. My Safariland Comp 1's are not as fast with .357's as .38's. are. Speed strips are effective. Two by two by one is a reliable method and you're certain to get something in the gun and it can't hang up and disable the gun. I don't use HKS in any serious application.

You sound like a right handed shooter. Have you considered how much the coin pocket being filled with a speed strip may slow or hinder access to you firearm? I don't like anything in the way.

You believe that pulling a gun without a threat present is going to bode well in any state in the Union. In NC it is a charge of GATTTOP, a misdemeanor, but still will result in a ride with pretty bracelets. If a person goes pointing guns at other people without justification I would suspect more serious charges in most states.

Use of force in every state is only justified when it is justified. Don't know which state you are in, but you might want to check with an attorney.

I carry AIWB, not pocket. But wow, you carry as much as 7 reloads at once? Nice.

I had three originally and I had them in my left pocket when I took an untimely departure from my motorcycle. Anyway​ I ended up sliding down the highway on speedloaders. So I ordered 4 to replace the totalled speed loaders. Turns out they were salvageable​ just scuffed, so now I have seven. The other three have a different .357 load that's cheaper to shoot. 7 speedloaders on rare occasions where I have to look nice, but can't go IWB and I want to be prepared for an extended period of entertainment.
