    I keep mine in a mag carrier, weakside about 7:00, be careful about just slipping them in a pocket!! Lots of stuff can make it's way into the magazine.

    You might want to let members know what kind of gun. Single stack or double?

    Well, you have a few options. IWB or OWB or pocket...I currently have a milt sparks IWB mag carrier. I have a staggered mag, so the extra thickness is kind of uncomfortable. I think I would like it more if it were single stack. So my next mag carrier will be OWB, but still covered by my untucked shirt. I'm not a big fan of pocket mag carriers. I think it's a little harder to access, and I don't like bulk in my pockets. There's too much crap in my front pockets already (a few keys, my money clip wallet, cellphone, and I don't want it getting mixed up.

    Kydex or leather is another option. I think that's pretty much just down to personal opinion. My leather one has a guard that goes to the top, so it's pretty comfortable in that respect. No bare magazine against me. I'm looking at a kydex double mag carrier for IDPA. Kydex is a little faster.

    I have an OWB Galco double mag carrier and just got an IWB Crossbreed tuckable. I am currently using the Crossbreed.

    I've tried the IWB Crossbreed tuckable mag holster and really liked it. Depends on if you can wear OWB or if you need more concealment.

    I usually use OWB, pocket carriers or a mix of both. My favorite is the double mag carrier from WRB (on right in pic) carried in front pocket. I use one for a couple of 1911 single stacks, or another for two mags for the PM9. The Milt Sparks on the left is also quite good. Another option is the Mag Packer from DeSantis, same material they use for the Nemesis pocket holster.

    Regards, T Bone.

    I carry a horizontal Safariland on belt (double stack XD 9mm)
    Smallest footprint I've found, except for IWB.

    I keep mine in my front left pocket.

    I have sewn or safety pinned all the pockets in all my pants so there is a vertical pocket within the pocket for the magazine.

    kind of like this:

    I don't get any lint, dirt or otherwise with the pocket carriers. Are the pics working for you yet? Showing up here fine (anyone else?)

    The Milt Sparks is the premium choice for a single mag, but like their holsters you'll have to wait.

    If you want to carry two single stack 1911 mags, here's the link to the double mag carrier I showed from WRB.

    If you only want to carry one, here's the DeSantis Mag Packer

    Not as much as I get in my carry gun (carried IWB), so the mag gets cleaned regularly.

    Well, here's what I use. And I use it OWB or IWB. You can also ask member jfl how he likes his. Mine is very dependable and modular, at a good price too!

    Thanks for the Pic T Bone. Exactly what I have been looking for. Mine is ordered and on the way :)
