    I stuff it right down inside my tidy whitey's, right up next to Big Ben. That way it really looks like I'm 'packing.'

    I just ordered and received earlier today (10/20/10) a Galco horizontal single magazine holder. I wanted this style so it would not stick into my "belly" when sitting or driving and would lay accross my belt and hopefully be less noticable.

    Galco website:

    Where I ordered it from (quick and great pricing)-scroll down for the various model and color options:

    I have learned that I must carry on my strong side right in front of my holster (which is perfect for me). My cell-phone is on my left side hip.

    I did not want or need a double mag carrier (for horizontal wear) nor did I want a single mag carrier that rides vertical... so this was my best option... and after 1 day, so far so good.

    Personally, my firearm hols 16+1.... so I hopefully will not need to reload... but if I do, I will have 16 more at the ready. I do not see myself carrying the extra magazine all the time, but I did want it for when I do.

    If your wearing jeans you can stick the mag in the watchpocket on the right side of the pants ammo down and the mag behind your belt. Works best with single stack mags like the 1911. Thats Old School from way back.

    That is a prime example of the K.I.S.S. style of carry.

    I am a MAxpedituon fan myself. They work great for my friend but ok for me.

    For my LCP I have a custom made RKBA leather holster that is basically like the pocket roo advertisement you see on this site. I also have an RKBA mag carrier that I use if I have cargo pants on that have 2 extra little pockets below each cargo pocket that perfectly fit my extra mag carrier or my zippo.

    For my SR9c I use a basic mag pouch from Cabelas that just goes through my belt loops.

    Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    Another here for retired Gerber multi tool holders. I have one of the fabric ones with the velcro flap. Its great for discreet appearances but it is not easy or quick to access.
