    Spare P3AT mag

    Picked up a P3AT and am very happy with it in a Nemesis holster, riding in the back pocket for when I can't wear my regular carry. I'm looking for a way to carry a spare mag.
    I'd rather not just put it in my pocket to get full of lint. Looking to find an OWB pouch with a snap top similar to a knife case that doesn't draw attention to itself, or something that could be carried in a pocket.
    I've seen the holsters that have the spare mag next to the gun, but they look to be too large for my pocket.
    Any ideas?

    I would suppose any of the custom holster makers could make a mag holder for your pocket. I would get in touch with Nate at UBG Holsters and tell him what I needed.

    Yeah I thought of the leatherman/knife case, but haven't come across any even close to the right size.
    I know a guy who does leather locally who is going to make something, but won't have time for a little while. I'm just surprised that there's nothing (I can find) available off the shelf as this is a very popular gun. Maybe most people don't carry spare mags for it.

    My guess is that most people either carry this for a backup gun, and probably don't carry spare mags for their backup, or they use it as a mouse gun where having a magazine on your hip would defeat the purpose of deep concealment.

    KD Holsters has a pocket mag pouch. I use it for my Keltec.

    Is it a backup gun or your primary? If its your primary you really should have a spare mag - and practice drills using it. If its a backup gun, good on you for wanting to carry an extra magazine, and I sure hope you never need to use it! I would consider ankle carry for an extra mag for a BUG - you'll probably be on the ground or hiding behind something at that point anyways - and it would be out of the way and easily concealable.

    Thanks for the info guys. I like the look of the Hedley a little better, but he requires you buy a holster for it, and isn't accepting new orders anyway. The KD should get the job done nicely.
    I'm a machinist and wear a shop apron at work. So it's pretty tricky to wear anything on the belt and not have it print. Quite a bit more in the warmer season with just a t-shirt. So the Kel Tec in a back pocket is a good compromise for me. Of course when I come home the first thing I do it put my Sig on, but a .380 sure beats nothing.
    aus, I always carry a spare mag or reload, good for peace of mind.

    I have thought about the same thing with my P3AT. Then I got to thinking about it, If I can't take care of the threat with 6+1 in this little gun - I sure as hell ain't going to survive a gun battle with it. I use mine for deep concealment - pocket carry and can't risk or afford much else showing.

    Not so much worried about a long gunfight or mag failure- although those are good reasons to carry a spare- but if the day ever comes, I really don't want to be standing there with an empty weapon while I wait for the police to show up.
    But hopefully it'll remain an academic question.
