    Comfortable extra mag carry option

    When I first started carrying, I knew it would be a good idea to carry an extra magazine. I looked at a bunch of different ways to carry one (I like my MTAC, so don't say Smartcarry ). I got an IWB mag carrier, but that was insanely uncomfortable. I put the mag in my pocket for awhile, but that meant shifting everything else to the other pocket, and there wasn't really enough room.

    A little while ago, I was sitting here looking at what I have in front of me and it dawned on me that a multi-tool is almost exactly the same size as a G19 mag. I see people all the time carrying those little multi-tool pouches on their belts, and there is nothing suspicious about it. As a bonus, it is both very comfortable and easily accessible.

    So, here is what I have been wearing for the last little while (pictured with my beloved Beltman horsehide gunbelt):





    One thing that I have been thinking about, though, is the possibility of carrying two spare magazines instead of one. I'd kinda like to do that, just in case of malfunction, but I am having a hard time coming up with anything that is as comfortable as what I have now. Maybe I should just get a second, identical pouch

    I found a mag holder at Academy sports for less than 10.00 that is made from the same material

    My gun shop had mag holsters designed like you multi-tool pouch. I use it for my Glock-36 mag, and it was very inexpensive.
    When I take my Kimber, I use a regular Galco clip-on OWB mag holder, when I take my Glock-36, I use the black pouch (like yours) with the velcro cover...works very well...it actually IS the most comfortable.

    I took a similar route with my Glock 27 Mag. It is a cell phone case. These are so much a part of our lives no one pays any attention to them.

    There are also horizontal knife cases similiar to the OPs case that you can carry a mag in that would be pretty comfortable and no one would even know.

    I use a cell phone belt type which I purchased from Harbor Freight for $3.99. It hold 2 Beretta mags with a magnetic cover. Then I added a narrow strip of leather to close the bottom and cut so the strips would fit up the sides.

    Rainbow of California makes perfect cases for your spare mag. (They are supposed to be for pocket knives) Can be used horizontal or vertical. I use them for my LCP and PPS mags.
