Bamaranger mentions a good carry method:

I have them for .357 and .44 mag/spec.

In the past I have carried two speed strips in a compact camera case on the belt.
Stay Groovy

Speedloader carry ideas?

Well guys I bought some of the Safariland "split six" carry pouches and I really like them. They don't carry as flat as a semi auto mag on the belt does but they're not bad. Here is pic of them on my belt.....

Yup...they look good. Now all you need is a backpack to carry several hundred loaded speed strips...

I found a small belt pouch (looks like it is for a cell phone orbrange finder???) that I put on my belt. no one gives it a second look.
No second place finishes in a gun fight.

speed strips adjunct

For speed strips, I like to use this leather speed strip sheath. It holds the loaded strips (Bianchi, Tuff, etc). It protects the bullets from getting beat up in your pocket. The lead LSWCHP's I use are particular vulnerable to pocket wear.

I carry the strip in the leather protector in the right (dominant) hand pocket. I open and eject the spent casings holding the revolver in my left hand and by smacking the ejector rod with my right palm. I practice loading the strips by using my teeth to hold the leather sheath, removing the strip from the leather sheath using my right hand (my left hand holding the revolver) and then reloading from the strip with my right hand.

It sounds funky, but it works quite well. I think it faster (reloads are all about speed) than futzing with a belt mounted snap container of some sort. I would carry the strip unsheathed in the pocket rather than in a belt rig.

I'm not sure what this means, but, if it's a question, the answer is simple: six (or more) rounds it.

A 642 is holstered in my right front pocket. Since I load with my left hand a HKS or two lives in my left front pocket along with my nitrotabs and change. And no, the loaders have never come apart on me.
Too old to fight. Knees won't let me run.
Good reasons to carry.
