    I was just looking at one made by Milt Sparks. Andrews leather makes one too I think.

    They hurt. It's not hard to conceal a high-riding OWB mag pouch.

    As a firm believer in IWB carry I thought that an IWB mag carrier would be just the thing. So I had a nice one made for me by FIST for 1911 mags. Wrong, wrong, wrong! Even for the relatively thin 1911 mag this device is lumpy, bumpy, and absolutely uncomfortable to wear. The only place I can comfortably wear it is in my right, rear pocket with the metal clip on the outside. It's OK there but as an IWB carried devise it has been, for me, the pits. If you so some searching on various sites you will find this to be a kind of consensus.

    Sounds like a consensus... I'll just stick with the normal OWB mag carriers.

    Wise move. I have an IWB from Milt Sparks (was advised against it). They were right. I rarely ever use it. Too uncomfortable. And if I'm carrying a pistol IWB (in a comfortable Milt Sparks VM-2), a high ride OWB mag pouch on the off side conceals just as easily.

    Got enough things stuffed into my pants so this won't fit anytime soon (sorry Tim)

    Galco also makes several IWB mag pouches. I would like to try the deep cover IWB pouch, but hate to spend the money to find I don't like it.

    I have a tucker gunleather IWB mag carrier and is is completely comfortable. I hardy know it is there, and never carry without it.

    I think it depends on how much you already have stuffed into your britches whether or not you can comfortably use an IWB magazine pouch!

    I have an IWB pouch but I prefer an OWB pouch and it conceals easily under whatever cover garment I'm using.

    Mileage will vary, most likely, on whether folks consider them comfotable.

    But, since most don't consider them necessary, not too many folks bother trying them out. After all, dressing to conceal the magazine carrier isn't typically seen as a difficult thing.

    I would suggest either an OWB mag holder or a knife sheath. The leatherman types work well.

    I had a beautiful custom tuckable dual mag holster but I never wore it because I got rid of the gun (with the mags of course) the day it came in the mail. I have no idea if it was comfortable or not. I sold it recently and jintsfan is supposed to let me know how it feels.
