    I usually carry one or two mags, depending on the situation, in leather mag pouches on the weak side.

    Hi Bill and welcome (even if you did join last year!)

    I have mag pouches/holders for most mags I might carry but in fact do not use them too often. Most likely now is a Galco single for a SIG 226 mag - and that is handy because a clip-on. If I were to have 1911 on board then it too I have a double holder for and would probably use it - if not doing the lazy pocket trick!

    I don't carry spare mag much of time and so on occasions am lazy and throw one in a pocket. back when my carry was SP-101 I had a coupla speedloaders just in pockets - pouches were too protruberant for my liking.

    What TN Eleven said...

    although I also have some nylon magazine carriers I use as well.

    If I'm carrying a revolver, I carry one or two HKS speedloaders in a nylon carrier on my strong-hand-side belt in front (so as to be at-hand when the revolver with open cylinder is in my weak hand).

    I usually carry a spare magazine for either the 1911 or the USP .40.

    If we get past the first 8 rounds, priority after the mag change will be un-butting the AO...

    I have many mag pouches but most every day I carry an extra mag in my left front pocket or one in my left rear pocket.In the past 4 years or so I put on a little weight and the mag tends to dig into my flesh a bit so I started carrying in my pockets most of the time.

    One spare G17 mag in Comp-Tac kydex mag pouch @ 8 o'-clock (waiting for Blade-Tech pouch to arrive).

    Two Speed-Strips (with 4 rounds 2+2) for S&W442 (my in between gun, not a BUG) in jacket pocket whether I have the gun or not.

    I bought a Comp-tac double mag pouch for IDPA usage because I might need up to 31 rounds on a stage.

    For daily concealed carry, I found that this kydex pouch sticks out pretty far---with G21 on the left and mags (or G27) on the right, I must squeeze into my form-fitting car seat too tightly. So for daily carry, I keep 1 extra mag in the console when I am in the car and transfer it to a pocket when I exit.

    I just got my leather belt loop mag holder for my Glock 17. I haven't used it yet - with 17 rounds in the Glock, I really really hope I never never need it!

    I have the same on order for my Skyy CPX-1, along with the holster. That's a Haugen Handgun leather "Huntington Wedge". The 10 round capacity of the Skyy makes that mag holder look a "little more reasonable".....

    Edit 04 26 06: Holster canceled pending resolution of Skyy matter (lack of confidence as CC weapon).

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Havent carried an extra mag yet. But this year itll be a single mag carrier on the weak side. Most likely be a Donn Hume product. Ive had good luck with there stuff and its reasonably priced. Have a great day Sixgun

    Hi Bill.

    I carry at least one magazine on my weak side; two if it's a single stack 9mm mag. I usually carry a spare mag for my BUG in a pants pocket.
