Tip from Tiger McKee

“I practice with and carry revolvers a lot, especially S&W’s ‘K’ frames. I like the HKS speedloaders. With the HKS loaders you twist the knob to release the rounds. My old fingers don’t work as well as they used to do due to arthritis and old injuries, so twisting the knob is sometimes a bit difficult. My solution is to drill and tap the knob of the loader; installing a #10 Allen head bolt. This little bit of extension gives me a better grip on the knob and something positive to twist. Reloading is much easier. Since there’s not a lot of torque involved you could also probably just drill a hole and use JB Weld to epoxy the screw in place.” — Tiger McKee
