    How do you carry a spare mag?

    Feeling like I should I have the ability to carry a spare mag for my XD or LC9. What do you like / use?

    Thanks in advance for the help,

    for my pocket-carried guns (642 and CM-9) i used leather or nylon pouches that go in another pocket.

    for my holster-carried guns i use OWB mag pouches or speedloader carriers. mag pouches are carried at 7:30 on my off-side. speedloader carriers are at 1:30 or so on the gun-hand side.

    I usually just stick it in a pocket. I've been thinking about getting a mag carrier for the belt.

    I cobbled up 2 holders from small flashlight holsters. Some Shoe Goo & clasps cut out from old cell phone holders did the trick. They rest on my belt at about 7:00 & they're very firmly held in place. I normally carry one with a 14 round mag but when my M&P40C comes in (10 round mags) I'll probably carry both of them.

    Sometimes I carry a spare mag for my primary in a left rear pocket, and a spare for my pocket gun in my left front pocket. Sometimes I carry a spare mag and surefire flashlight in a leather carrier on my left side, and sometimes it's a double mag pouch. I also have a single kydex carrier for my primaries mag, that I carry on my left side. I guess it just depends on the situation. One thing that never changes though, is I ALWAYS have a reload or three. Better to have it and not need it then . . .

    Be safe.

    Been carrying a spare mag in my off hand front pocket for a couple of months now. Got a flashlight the other day that came with a holster, my spare mag fit in it so I experimented with it. I found out quickly that a spare mag on my belt is a little too bulky for me. Possibly if I put it horizontal, but still not sure. I'm glad I got to try it out as I was getting close to just buying a mag pouch, for now I'm just gonna roll with it in my pocket.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    On my belt, weak side, in a cheap nylon knife or multi tool holster. I like the flashlight holster idea too. I'm trying to keep my reload inconspicuous.

    I always belt carry on weak side.

    Usually I carry a spare in a leather OWB mag holder. And if I see a need for another mag the. I use a Blackhawk plastic clip on holder.

    I recently purchased a clip on leather belt pouch for a spare 12 round mag for my XD-40. Prior to that I just dropped a mag into my weakside front pocket.

    When pocket carrying my 642, I drop a speed strip reload into either my weakside front pocket or the watch pocket on my jeans.
