For years, Bianchi Speed Strips have been an effective method of carrying an extra load of ammunition for your .38 or .357 revolver. I have personally used and recommended the Speed Strips to a lot of people needing extra ammo when carrying concealed.
However, for calibers other than .38/.357, shooters were out of luck. That has changed with the introduction of the Quick Strips from Tuff Products.
Tuff Products has brought a line of ammunition carriers to market that appear to be very similar to the old Speed Strips, but the Quick Strips are available in a wide range of calibers. The currently available calibers are:
- .22 rimfire (10 rounds)
- .327 Federal Magnum (8 rounds)
- .38 Special/.357 Magnum (6 rounds or 8 round models)
- .410 shotshell
- .44 Special/.44 Magnum (6 rounds)
- .45 Colt (6 rounds)
- .460 S&W Magnum (6 rounds)
- .475 Linebaugh (6 rounds)
- .480 Ruger (6 rounds)
- .500 S&W Magnum (6 rounds)
Additionally, new calibers are scheduled for release in May: the .41 Magnum, .45 autorim, .500 Linebaugh, and .50 Bowen Special.
Tuff Products sells the Quick Strips in two packs for $8.49 on their website.
