Default Moon clips in a Ruger

Would you say the difference between half and full moon clips for a 9mm revolver is only personal preference?

Is there a recommend brand, style or design you folks use; especially if you have a 9mm Speed Six?

I think with half moon clips, you can reload after firing two or three rounds, whereas with full moon, you have to reload all six. Plus half-moons are less obvious and easier to carry. Full moon clips are great for the range where you know you're going to fire six rounds.

Might be a moot point, I don't know that anyone sells half-moon clips for 9mms. I know I've never seen any.

T K Custom may make half moon clips for a 9mm Ruger, but if so will be pricey, but very high quality.

I don't have a 9mm revolver.(yet) But I carry a 325 45acp revolver. I carry my spare ammo in 1/2 moon clips. They are easier to carry. Full moons are great but kind of bulky. 1/2 moons don't take up near as much space. I even have a few double clips that just hold 2 rounds. But, like the 1.2 moons best for everyday carry.

Thanks for all the info.

My Speed Six came with the factory supplied (??) envelope with 9 or 10 half moon clips that work great.

I also bought some TK full moon clips from a guy on another forum and a local friend (and member here) GIFTED me his demooning tool!

Really enjoy these forums!
