    I use a single OWB holder as of right now. But I need to rethink that since the G36 has only a 6 round mag...

    When I am wearing my Uncle Mike's shoulder rig it is on my weak side. When I am wearing my paddle I don't carry.

    I carry mine in a generic cell phone/radio holster, OWB, weak side. Going for the multi tool look, not the tacti cool look. It rides behind my cell phone on my belt.

    Sometimes I carry a pair on the off-side of a shoulder holster, sometimes a single in a clip-on carrier on the outside of the waist band, sometimes in a pocket, and sometimes none at all.

    I usually carry one extra mag in an OWB belt carrier. For Jax or Orlando, I have a double mag carrier (still OWB).

    Is the motto of the Jax/ Orlando resident, "More ammo!!"?

    Over time, the whole carry thing’ becomes an integral part of your life. It’s like intuitively dawning your seatbelt when you get in your vehicle. I use to carry a heavy semi-auto for all the right reasons but I eventually chose something more conducive to my minimalist life-style. I usually carry a speed-strip in my hip pocket and that’s it.

    I ordered a dual pouch Fobus paddle for my extra mags. Right now I use my Galco with the single mag pouch attached to the holster or just pocket carry them.

    Cellphone case

    I have a Glock 27 that I put an extra mag into a nylon cellphone case that has a velcro closure and spring clip.
    I seem to have my phone in my shirt pocket or pants pocket more than in the case, so I stuck my extra mag in the holster and nobody even notices.

    Having recently switched to my Kahr PM9 as my primary EDC, I decided I really needed to start to carry an extra mag. I first tried an IWB carrier from a custom holster maker, but it keeps poking me in my side. I think I am going to try a horizontal carrier next. I looked at a Galco on-line yesterday and it seems to be just what I am looking for. In the interim, I am just keeping the extra mag in my back pocket
