Nothing is close to the UpLula.  Suck it up and buy the UpLula.

Very True!  If I lost my UpLula, I would buy another in a heartbeat!

You can find good deals on them on ebay and Amazon.  I think I paid about $27 with free shipping from one ebay vendor and it stays in my Range Bag.

I've used other less expensive magazine loaders, but the UpLula really is the one to get.  I also own UpLula Magazine Loaders for my AR15A2 and AKM.

I had a hard time spending the money on the Maglula too but finally did.  For an expensive hunk of plastic, it really does work great.

I have a one piece unit that came with my 75B but it doesn't work nearly as well.

My brother and his two oldest boys came down a couple of weeks ago and we did quite a bit of shooting.  I didn't use the loader and my thumbs were kind of sore for a couple of days. 
Spend the money, you'll only regret it until you use it a couple of times.

Maglula is the only way to go. 

Twice now I’ve forgotten mine, which necessitates a trip to the front of the range, retail counter to buy a new one.   

There’s no going back.

Thanks for all the suggestions :).  I was curious as to the cheapest offerings to be had to save a sore thumb or two, and you've helped.

Sometime, they (uplula) have a good deal on ebay/amazon; it is less than $25.

just go with the 'lula

one loader that will cover everything from a vz82 (9x18) up to a Desert Eagle .50AE (and do it all really well)

you owe it to your thumbs

This. I use mine for my Shield and P10C. Couldn't be happier.

I can confirm that the generic plastic 9mm glock loader thing does work on the P10c mags and Ruger SR9 mags one of my daughterinlaw uses. They sell them at the gunshows for like 5 bucks in my neck of the woods

I've always scoffed at mag loaders - I can generally load faster by hand. And, since I'm a mag junkie, I usually have enough mags to run a whole class or match with minimal, if any, reloading. My thumbs get a bit sore after loading 15-20 mags, but I do it the night before so it's not an issue.

I'm really intrigued by the ETS Cam loader, but I can't get over the feeling that it's rough on the feed lips.

I've tried to use the UPLULA, but it doesn't feel natural to me, and I'm way faster with my thumb.

So... as part of a promotion from S&W, I got one of these with the purchase of an M&P:


https://www.btibrands.com/product/mag-charger-universal-pistol-loader/

I loaded 3 M&P mags, 3 CZ mags and 1 (all I had within reach) Glock mag with it, and it worked great. It wasn't super fast, but it took no effort at all. The only issues I had were when the mag wasn't fully secured - it has to be all the way in to work. When it is, it's super smooth.

I tried a Tripp, a Metalform and a MecGar 9mm 1911 mag in it and it didn't work for those at all. The Tripp and Metalform I could load the first round, but the second wouldn't go in no matter how I adjusted it. The Mec Gar, I couldn't get anything to load.

I didn't have any .45 within arms reach, so I haven't tried any single or double stack .45 mags.

I don't know that I'd drop $40 on one, but since I got it for free, I think I'll start using it to load mags at home and save the thumb blisters. At least until I can work up the courage to try the ETS.

I misplaced my uplula one day after a range practice shoot.  I bough another on the same day.  Later I found the original and was still glad I bought a backup.
I load over 90 RDS before a match and reload some of those including my big stick. Load about the same before weekly practices.  I am NOT fast loading by hand.  I AM very fast with an Uplula,  and have NO hand or finger fatigue/discomfort.
Without the Uplula I would HAVE to load the day before a shoot and buy more mags.

My Maglula works perfect on mt P10C mag, in fact I've used it on 9 different pistol mags and it's worked on everything. I thought I paid about $26 for it but it's been a few years back. It's built better than any of the others I've seen.

The ones that come with a Glock will work, but like others have said the uplula is my go to.  I have one in both range bags and one in my safe.  Expensive for what it is, but it just works
