ARX .38 Special

You went out of your way to acquire the lightest .38 revolver you could find, so why stop there? These .38s from Inceptor are loaded with 77-grain copper-polymer projectiles, non-expanding self-defense bullets that are designed to cause massive disruption in an attacker’s body and never get hung up on heavy clothing. The weight savings in bumping from lead-and-copper rounds to these might surprise you, and 1,260 feet per second is no small feat for a .38 Special. Learn more at InceptorAmmo.com.

By strategically staging the rounds, the QuickLoad StripLoader (bottom) gives you the convenience of a speedloader with the slimness of a speed strip (or maybe two speed strips beside each other). The QuickLoad RoundLoader (top) is designed to release its cartridges with nothing but continued forward pressure — no twisting required. They’re both made in the USA and are available at QuickLoadSpeedloader.com.
