    The reason I asked this question was because I was at a contingency working group meeting the other day put on by FEMA and an FBI guy was there doing a presentation and he pulled his suit jacket back a bit to get something out of his pants pocket, and there loe and behold were 2 mags on his belt. It certainly screamed that he was carrying and I didn't think that was necessarily a good idea - but then again I'm not in the FBI. The audience attending were all Feds from various agencies so we weren't a hostile group.

    yep. If my pistol is concealed so are my spare mags. It also goes the other way. If I'm carrying open so are the mags(whats the point of hiding the mags if they can already see the gun).

    I conceal all defense equipment, including the Wilderness belt and the folding knife.

    I must conceal my spare mag(s). I use either a Smartcarry, a Leatherman/Gerber holder (concealed in plain sight), or both.

    Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of concealing your weapon, besides the legal issues involved?

    Why would it not be a good idea for anyone so authorized to carry here? Why would it not be a good idea for an FBI agent (or other cop) to carry anywhere?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I dont think he was saying its not a good idea for the agent to be carrying, but it wasnt a good idea to be carrying the mags the way he was.

    Mine are concealed in a special made back pack of mine Lara Flynt style.. they deploy automatically... it's rather ingenious.

    On a side note.. yes.. I do conceal my mags.. depending on where I'm going is how I conceal them.. usually in a double mag holder.. lately however I've been thinking of buying a BUG

    Do You Conceal Your Extra Mags Too?
    Yes. Displaying any of the gear gives away all the gear. So, it's all concealed.

    The only thing that may show would be the clip on my SD knife in my front pocket.

    OPFOR - That is not what I was saying. SIXTO - Yes, that is what I was saying. If the agent had been off of the compound, noone would have known he is an agent and someone might be inclined to get the drop on him if they know he's carrying. It was just an observation. They can carry anywhere they want to and should - they are the FBI after all.
