what I learned today: ALWAYS keep the speed loader with the gun.

waiting for parts for a suburban so I figured I may as well get familiar with my new 92FS. just to be safe I emptied all 3 17 rnd. mags and checked things out. ok, everything looks good and trigger is quite smooth. time to put it away, but first I better reload the mags. huh, I left the speed loader on my bench at home. oh well, it can't be that hard can it? YES it is !!!! even with using a pencil eraser it was a major PITA. I may go so far as to attach it to the gun case with a janitor style retractable key ring so I have it handy and never loose it.

yep, the last 5 or 6 rounds of a double stack mag can be a bear. I lucked out, the Safari Land mag loader I bought for the wife's Ruger P95 also works with my 92 FS

Yeah, I agree with you, somewhat. Even after about 25 years, the magazines on mine are a little hard to load but not that hard. It will wear your thumb out, but can be done! I have never used the mag loader on it, or on any gun for that matter.

I have to ask, why would you empty all of your mags? There I sit with an unloaded gun, and the SHTF! I might unload one, but not all of them!:eek::D
