I prefer one handed loading with a speed loader, ala Safariland or SLVariant, so I don't like or use the HKS line of speed loaders at all. Safariland doesn't make 7-shot loaders and the 7-shot Variant has been back ordered for months (if not a year by now). For this reason the only 7 shot L-frames I find acceptable are those cut for use with moon clips. I have two of them so modified and find then great for home and personal defense, when the extra round could possibly make a great deal of difference. Other wise the other L-frames are all 6 shot and I don't feel un-armed in any way with them or their "limited" capacity. YMMV!
