Default Speed Loader for M&P 9 Shield Mag??

Just picked up a new M&P 9 Shield 9mm and am looking for a good magazine speed loader. Lots of good reports about the Maglula/Uplula speed loader but their website has a note saying their loader will not work with S&W SS 9mm 8 round mags, something about the beak is too wide.

Suggestions?

Thanks, Dave

I guess it just proves that "ignorance is bliss" because I happily use my Uplula to load my 8 round Shield magazines.

I took a peak at their website, and noticed that it said the Uplula wouldn't load Glock 36 mags either...when I had my Glock 36, I used my Uplula to load the magazines for it. I've had my two Uplulas for several years, so maybe the design has changed, I dunno....but I've used mine on every gun I've owned (except my revolvers) and I've never had any problem.

My Uplula works on my Ruger LC9, Shield 40, and Springfield XD45. So it will work fine on the single stack Shield 9mm.

Will throw in another plug for the Uplula - works great with my Shield 9 mags, both 7 & 8 rnd. Also use it with my FS 9 17 rnd mags.

Uplula works perfect on my .40 Shield, as well as the Gen 4 Block 19 and the XDS .45.

It works so damn good, our range has started selling them to people.

Isn't the Baby for .22? Anyhow, I'm sure the Universal version will work. The mag is just a little shorter, after all.

OK. I notice it didn't mention anything about a 40 cal on the Uplula Baby Mags description. Just wanted to double check.
Thanks for your help.

Well, I use the same Uplula for .380, 9mm and .45, so I think it will fit .40.

I don't use a loader either. I just place the round vertically, push straight down on the nose, then tilt the round and it pops into place, one after another all the way to the last one.

In almost every facet of life, the tools and accessories we use have evolved to make tasks less onerous...like a power-propelled lawn mower, or even a riding lawn mower. Like electric windows and door locks. Like electric saws. Like an electric can opener. I could go on and on, but hopefully you get my point. I'm willing to bet you have and use some of these things, too.

If you choose to load your magazines by hand, or tell your son to do it, that's fine and it's your choice. I don't see any glory or machismo to be gained from it, or a badge of honor, so I'll continue to use my UpLula which saves me time and effort, and gives me more time to shoot...and then load the magazines again.

I do get your point and Sacarsim noted.(Unlike my post)
I NEVER said it was a Badge of honor, NOR did I imply that. I simply stated that I was a little suprised that someone would use a speed loadeder to load a 8 round 9mm magazine. And possibly I was missing something, If i was offensive it was unintentional, If i was being Macho it was unintentional.

I didn't use sarcasm...I was stating simply and directly what I think. I don't see any benefit to be gained from not using modern conveniences, nor do I see it as "weak" to use a speed loader to make loading easier. I also said, and believe, that it is every man's choice.

That's all...no other meanings to be inferred here.

Lets agree to disagree. I never even mentioned "weak" so thats on you. I guess if you really want to get down to Brass tacks. Mordern conveniences are nice but are not always gonna be available. Case in point the GPS system which will never ever replace a map and compass. At some point a GPS will not work,Be it a bad satellite, bad weather etc etc. We get so acustomed to these mordern conveniences that we forget how to simply navigate life. I bet if you go to a grocery store not one teller will be able to give you the correct change without looking at the cash register first. Modern conviences has even limited our mathematical skills.
Thats has something to do with speed loaders I am sure

Hey, guys! With the pain in my hands, the Uplula loader is a godsend that allows me to enjoy shooting. If I didn't have it, my range sessions would be much shorter. I'm sure many of the older shooters on the forum share my appreciation for the loader, and whether you're young or old, healthy or not, the speed does allow all of us more time to shoot.

And like the earlier poster, I'm glad I didn't know that the Uplula wouldn't work on the 8 round 9mm Shield mag, 'cause I just used it to fully load one to begin breaking in the spring!

i have a H&K loader from a double mag. put a few bolts / stops thru the handle to use w/ both the 6 rd. and 7 rd. mags. i did purchase the llula loader, it was worth the $30. range time is a quick load. it will be nice when S&W puts some xtra mags on the market!! saw a guy@ the range loading his mags. so fast he was sweating. but it doesn`t work w/ the 223 mags.:. 40 years ago i was in the deep harwoods of pa. it got dark, storm come in, whiteout time. walked slow so not to sweat, wished i had my compass, only cabin in the mt. section i was at, a few hours later, when i heard a couple of guys taking a leak and laughing, i knew i wouldn`t have to sleep in the woods that night. when i rechecked my pack i found the compass under an extra shirt, so my thoughts were that i was never lost. for some reason i have a compass in the car, pack always. just like i go to the range i have a loader to use. don`t know why the hunting story came to mind. but i`ve hunted w/ people that wouldn`t use a compass.-- didn`t want to reroute the thread, but somebody might have been in my tracks at one time, maybe brought a smile to someones face.

Until I got my M&P9C, I'd only had .45 1911 style guns, and never thought about, nor needed, a speed loader. Then I got my 9C, and thought my thumb was going to abandon me, especially getting the last rounds in. That's when I found the Uplula speedloader, and now I feel like I'm going back to the stone ages if I don't use it on any of my CF guns. Much quicker and easier, generally just more fun.

I chuckled when I read somewhere (here maybe?) about someone keeping only a single round in the chamber of a SD gun, and no loaded mags, so while he's aiming for his first shot, he's using his left hand to load his magazine(s). That guy must have at least 10-12 fingers and 3 thumbs on that one hand to accomplish that!

Anyhow, I forgot my Uplula my last time shooting, and just felt lost.

I do see your point about loss of certain skills...I will admit that I have become so accustomed to using a calculator that I won't try to balance my checkbook without one, for example. I do think that is a different issue, and I really don't think that using an UpLula will make me forget how to load a magazine without one.

In the interests of harmony, though, I promise that if my GPS ever goes out, I will load my magazines by hand.

I think that this is the crux of this. Using a speed loader doesn't make you forget how to load a magazine by hand... It just is easier and quicker. I think MP1SG has a good point about tech atrophying abilities that it enables; a good example is spell check and autocorrect.

I'd argue that one could sneer at people using modern cartridges because a 10 year old can load the other black powder rifle while I'm shooting this one. Obviously that'd be silly and was used only as an example.

I really liked the post about how it enables people for whom the magazine loading is the most physically taxing part of shooting to continue to practice and pursue their hobby.

I'd also say that if one wants their kid to reload,thir mags without a speed loader, more power to them... A beautiful part of this hobby is the freedom we have to pursue it in our own ways. I'd also suggest that the kid gets a uplula cuz he'll be able to load more mags faster

Cheers.

The UpLula's for all (most) mags is the best thing since sliced bread. I have a couple for all my mags from handguns to Modern Sporting Rifles.

+1. Love it. Ours works well on Shield mags. It is just a tad of an issue to keep the single stack mag centered, but no big deal.

I've been shooting over 50 years and never used a mag loader in my life until about 3 months ago. I have a FS 40 with 15 round mags and a 9c with 17 round mags. Shooting at the range one day I saw the guy next to me using the uplula and asked about it. He let me use it to load a mag. I packed up, left the range, drove straight to Academy, and bought myself one.

I still have callouses on both thumbs from where I loaded by hand. It was getting to the point that I almost quit shooting pistols because I'm getting arthritis in both hands and loading the mags was painful.

Since then I have bought loaders for my Ruger Mark 11 .22 and the Ruger 10/22. I'm shooting more now than I ever did all because of the magazine loaders.

UPLula Magazine loader shown with magazines from a Glock 32, 1911, and Kahr CM9.

As stated by those who use them, an invaluable tool to avoid sore thumbs when loading multiple magazines and high capacity mags.

What I don't understand is why anyone would give a flip how
another person loads their magazines. If you don't like to use
a loader, don't. If you do, go for it. The UpLula works great for
me, & I won't go to the range without it!

I'm the same as you Steve32k. I never used a speed loader at all until last year I bought a 15 round mag for my M&P 45. It was fine until about the last 2-3 rounds and it was painful. arthritis was acting up and I could barely move my right thumb. There was a guy next to me loading mags as he had just arrived and pulled out the Lula and loaded 6 - 15 round 40 cal mags. I borrowed it to load the mags I had twice more and that was it for me too. Off to the store and bought one for myself and both my sons. We never used them before, but they are great as far as I'm concerned. I come to the range to shoot, not stand there and load magazines. Every little bit helps.
And it does work for the M&P Shield 9mm. I use it for that also. I keep it around my neck on a small lanyard so it's right there for me. Time is important!!

I got the UpLula to help my girlfriend load her Shield 9 mags because she couldn't get the last round in and broke her thumb nail twice on separate occasions. No she doesn't get her nails done, but she couldn't keep my XD mag loader centered so she did it by hand when I didn't do it for her. So I got the UpLula and taught her how to use it and now I use it for every mag as well. From the Sigs to XD's to both Shields. I don't think it's any faster for me, but sure does save the thumbs. I got the .223 version for loading my Surefire 60 and that makes a world of difference. They're the best.

StripLULA™ 5.56 / .223 Loader & Unloader

A 10-round magazine loader and unloader. The StripLULA™ loader & unloader are military-quality 5.56 / .223 cal 10-rounds magazine loaders and unloaders. They facilitate loading both ten rounds from stripper clips and loading ten loose rounds into a magazine, and unloading them out of the magazine. They do so fast, safely, comfortably and painlessly. Usable for tens-of-thousands rounds. Available in models for both M-16 / AR-15 and Ruger Mini-14.

Use the M16 LULA™ for professional and quick 5 sec. unloading of M16 type mags.
I got one of those this weekend and it works great. My dad decided to get one too after seeing how easy it was to load one of his 40 rd Pmags.

At some point a GPS will not work,Be it a bad satellite, bad weather etc etc. We get so acustomed to these mordern conveniences that we forget how to simply navigate life. I bet if you go to a grocery store not one teller will be able to give you the correct change without looking at the cash register first. Modern conviences has even limited our mathematical skills.
Thats has something to do with speed loaders I am sure
So because a modern convenience may not be available sometime you should never use it at all? So by that logic, when you want to eat, you don't use a microwave or even a stove. You run outside, gather wood, & cook your meal over an open fire? Yet here you are using a computer, one of the most modern of conveniences. Too windy for smoke signals? To reiterate my earlier post, I don't see why anyone would care how someone else loads their magazines. Your ten year old loads your magazines, isn't that a convenience?

I use and love the Mag Lula. Mine was given to me by another shooter at a firearms qualification course because I was loading everyone's mags for the shoot. I could load six M9 mags with it in the time it takes to load one by hand.

I am not sure why anyone cares how you load your mags. These persons should remember that where the lead goes down range is more important. Of course if their lead isn't flying well they may be easily distracted...

I have the uplula for my mags. Originally bought it for training. It helps out a great deal when you go through hundreds of rounds in a single class. Last weekend I forgot to bring the speedloader to the range with me and I hand loaded 100 rounds by hand and my thumb was aching. I must be getting soft...

Best 30 dollar accessory out there IMO
