    I found a really nice leather Galco mag holder for single stack mags that just clips to my belt, so I cary that on the weak side hip. Kinda helps balance out the CCW weight.

    50 loose rounds in a tube sock in my pocket.

    A sock full of lead makes quite a blackjack. However, if you actually want to shoot them, try using mags.

    I haven't spent much on the holsters and mag carriers yet - for now I carry my spare mag (Colt stainless 8rd .45) in the belt carrier that came with my Victorinox tool (9:00). The plus to this is it looks totally inocuous

    I carry an extra mag and my SureFire 6P in a pouch on the weak side.

    If I'm wearing my Monarch shoulder rig, then it's two spare mags with my SureFire.

    Mag and surefire in an offiside Mitch Rosen SOS and another mag in a Galco mag pouch (if I'm wearing on the waist). My UC Comfort holds three mags + a knife. If carrying another, well DeSantis makes a really kewl pocket mag pouch holster. Just something to think about.

    At first, no extra mags, then one in a Fobus mag carrier on the weak side, then got double mag carrier from Fobus. Since then, I found out that I could have gotten a nice, leather double mag carrier when I got my Laredo Defender and belt for my Glock 23, for only $5 bucks more than I paid for the Fobus!

    With one in the tube, that means I now carry 40 rounds of .40 S&W, ready to go. If that won't do it, maybe I'll just stay home. . .

    And I have ordered that leather double mag pouch, a few days ago.

    At least 1 spare mag. alot of the time I use a knife pouch to further disguise my mag carrier. i have found a leather schrade knife pouch or a Gerber multi plier nylon pouch fits a hi cap pistol mag. nicely.

    I seem to be in the minority as I carry an SP101. Have a double speed loader pouch in the weak side flannel shirt pocket. They don't stand out with the baggy old flannel shirts that I wear as jackets.

    I have a pouch that blends in with my belt, nobody even knows I'm carrying a spare.
    I normally have just 1 spare, plus what's in the pistol.

    Snubbie has two Speedstrips, one 5th pocket and the other weak front pocket. Have to figure out something for my Para P16 mags. Thinking of Bianchi's #10 IWB mag holder x 2. Until then, I wil probably keep one in a pocket. If need be, my UM cheapie IWB for my snubbie or my cell phone holder can be pressed into service. My cell phone holder usually holds my OC though.

    Spare magazine for Kimber Ultra Carry

    I carry a spare magazine at 11 o'clock in a Leatherman Wave pouch. The pouch is hoizontal and opens towards my left hand.

    I usually carry a blued magazine, although I've carried stainless on occassion. Either way, nobody seems to notice a 1911 magazine on my belt in plain sight.

    I have a Tucker IWB magazine pouch, but I find it somewhat uncomfortable and rarely carry it.
