    Question Favorite concealed carry mag holster?

    So what is your favorite magazine holster for concealed (not competition only) carry?

    Manufacturer? IWB? OWB? Paddle? Snaps? Leather? Kydex?

    and why?

    I'm looking to get a double mag holster for my PM9, and a single for my P99 (perhaps combo with a light). I'm generally a fan of leather, but thinking that mag holsters may be quite well suited to Kydex.

    Thanks.

    I prefer: Leather, double mag carrier, OWB, belt mounted.

    Leather won't break, 2 is better than 1, IWB mag pouches are 50/50 on the comfort level, belt mounting is the most secure IMO.

    I have two mag carriers that I am fond of, both for single stack .45s
    1 was made by Rhome: Desibens Custom Leather (currently not making holsters)

    The other is made by 5 shot leather.

    I also have a single mag carrier made by Rhome, and a single mag pouch from Desantis, which has a snap, which I'm really not fond of.

    I like leather IWB tuckable (you don't have to tuck if you don't want too).

    I most often use Smartcarry

    Edited to add Why

    How I dress for work requires deep concealment, so mag in Smartcarry pocket or IWB with my ID badge in front of it.
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    Blade-Tech combo mag/light holder for SF E2D.

    with Tech-Lok

    Why-b'cause I needed a light and carrying one in my pocket wasn't making it. "Someone" (Chris Bird?, Ayoob?, Am Handgunner?) said you'd probably need a lite more than a 2nd mag. This thing doesn't get into my pants like a paddle holder, stays put and the Tech-Lok works well with all my belts 'cept the Rafter S (too thick).

    I use a Mitch Rosen dual mag carrier.

    Why? Because I like this model.

    Gary's OWB leather. I like the angle of it. Superb workmanship as are all of Gary's products.

    I had a nice Del Fatti leather carrier but I sold it...now I only carry a spare mag when I have a jacket...I find a gun and mag pouch just too much for daily civilain life...

    I prefer the Don Hume single mag leather clip on. It is well made, easy on and off, and reasonably priced.

    I only use leather gear and prefer Brommeland's work whenever possible. His designs and craftsmanship are second to none and comfort and concealment are excellent with both of these mag pouches. I highly recommend them.

    I really like the design of this Mitch Rosen that Captain Crunch and fed_wif_a_sig have recommended.

    I'm leaning towards this double for the Kahr PM9, and either the same, or the similar mag/light design for the Walther P99.

    Anybody know the current turnaround time with Rosen?

    Thanks again.

    I don't, but I'd guess it's on a par with the rest of the industry. Rosen offers two styles, the "Premier" and the "Express Line". The Express is not as finely finished as the Premier, so the turnaround might be a little less.
