You must have a technique that escapes me. I've got pretty strong hands and I can't manipulate those moonclips without hurting my hands and/or bending them. For me, it is not unlike putting rounds into a mag with bare hands. That is why the Uplula was invented.

The BMT tool is the cat's meow.

DPris will become famous soon enough
In using Ruger clips that came with two guns, the cases were very easy to get in & out without tools, much more so than the Smith clips where I DID buy a de-mooner.

Unless Ruger's changed tolerances since, there was no wear & tear on my fingers whatever.
Very easy to use those without any tool at all.

Yeah, I have not tried setting up the picture upload function yet. I'll work on that soon. I have to agree with DPris that loading and unloading the moon clips was fairly easy. The 9mm Smith is much more difficult.

Sorry to necro, on the subject of moon clips I found Speed Beez on Amazon. 10 for $29.99 or 20 for $29.99. I have been tempted to order a pack and try them, but they don't look like they'll be springy like the Ruger clips. Some people have said seating rounds in the clip is really difficult. I can't imagine that having no give in the bullets alignment is going to help load them quickly. TKs are pretty pricey. I don't doubt they have quality product, I really eyed them for a conversion before the 5032 came out.
