    Heh, my only revolver is a SAA clone.

    I'd like to pick up a 686 some day though.

    Probably - drop the whole thing in without worrying about cleanly separating the speedloader from the cartridges.

    For sport, it sounds good and would likely be faster.

    For defense, potentially requiring a tool or a pair of pliers to load your gun is a bad idea.

    It just depends on what you want to use the gun for.

    I've considered it but my revolver is for carry only and while I don't mind a couple speed strips in my pocket, I don't think I'd like clips so I don't see the point. I'd rather have a new front sight and some trigger work done.

    Having a j-frame that shoots 9x19 could be nice.

    From what I remember the 940's are near impossible to get and out of production.
