As I write this,
we have just returned from the 2003 SHOT Show in Orlando,
Florida. With over 512,000 square feet of displays, it
took us three days to see everything that was of interest to us,
and that is skipping over all of the outdoor clothing and
archery stuff. There were, of course many new guns introduced at
the show, along with hundreds of gun-related products. Some of
these were useful, while others were just plain silly. One of
the most useful products is the subject of this article:
While visiting at
the Savage Arms booth, one of their representatives asked
me if I had seen the LULA. After displaying my total ignorance
of the product, she pulled one from her purse, and explained to
me how the thing works, and directed me to the booth where they
were displayed. There I received a demonstration of this little
device, and immediately had to have one.
The LULA is a
dandy little device that is made to easily and quickly load any
magazine that is made to fit an AR-15 or M-16, regardless of
magazine capacity. It is, without a doubt, one of the neatest
little mag loaders ever devised. It is manufactured in Israel,
and is in use by the Israeli Defense Forces. The LULA snaps onto
the top of the magazine, and locks into the cutout for the
magazine latch. To load a magazine, one simply drops in a
cartridge, and rotates the top lever. The lever moves about 45
degrees, and a round is inserted with each push or pull of the
handle. It is amazingly simple, and very fast. The first try, I
was able to fully load a thirty round magazine in 37 seconds.,
without any effort at all. Unloading the magazine is even
quicker. In a total of five seconds, the mag was emptied.
It is so easy, that it is fun.
Anyone that owns
an AR-15 type weapon should own one of these. If I can help it,
I will never again be without one. The LULA weighs under two
ounces, and is very compact. It sells for under 25 bucks, and
would be a bargain at twice the price.

I give the LULA my
highest recommendation. It is light, compact, inexpensive, and
