Midway put these mag loaders on sale, and they're still on through the 28th; I'd suggest getting one. I've tried it now on 1911, Browning Hi-Power, Makarov, Star BM and Colt model M mags(.380) and it's worked well on all. I have a lot less dings on my thumb from mag lips now. And it makes loading a 13 or 15-round magazine a lot easier on those last few.
The 9mm loads with Titegroup worked well.
And if I can do decent draw & fire drills with some fingers on my left hand half-numb, then I'm doing better than I'd thought
