    My magazine carrier is a nylon pouch used for a Leatherman, with a velcro flap over the top. It has to be threaded onto the belt so it won't come off, and it's good that I don't have to hide it and people can't tell it isn't just a multi-tool.

    Or for that matter, your cell phone. Although I quickly retreived it, the life of the phone was right then and there permanently ended. At least the firearm would not be permanently ruined if properly cleaned. I am uncertain about the lasers.

    I honestly didn't know what it was at first, I figured I knocked something off the sink and it fell in. The look on my face was probably one of complete surprise and the exact words that I recall saying were "You gotta be kiddin' me" and "The forum is going to love this"

    With all due respect, did you need to sleep in the garage that night?

    If you are refering to a Fobus mag holder, the lack of adjustable tension can be easily fixed. A small piece of self-adhesive felt (or the fuzzy side of velcro) can be placed on the outer body wall of the carrier extending about 1 inch down inside from the top edge. Just make sure to place the felt piece near the rear edge of where the magazine will be located and wrap a small length up and over the top edge to prevent the magazine feed lips from catching on the felt and dragging it down into the mag carrier. For heavier double stacked mags, a nylon-tipped set screw can be added as well to the lower body wall in a position that will provide positive retention pressure but not touch the feed lips.

    This seems like a lot of effort, but I have yet to find a mag carrier that holds this tight to your body while being quick to remove (paddle vs. threaded belt loops). The BH CQC carriers are nice, but the spring steal retention leaf and removable belt clip add extra thickness.

    BTW...that would probably be this one that JD is talking about:
    It may work great of single stack mags, but I find my double stack 16 round XD mags to be kind of on the loose side. In fact, if I turn it upside down and give it a mild shake, it slides right out.

    I'm presently looking for a replacement. I do like the belt clip on that mag carrier. One of the most secure clips I've seen.

    My ex-girlfriend did that too. She was a real winner and did dumb things all the time so I wasn't surprised.

    Well at least you now have one very clean mag.

    Now tell us what you would have said had this happened in a public restroom, or if you would have just left the mag or tried to flush it.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
