    Hey all, just stumbled across the site while checking into some concealed carry law questions that I had. Seems like there are a bunch of helpful people here, hope to be able to gain some knowledge from everyone!

    Just bought my first handgun, having it added and then going to pick it up. I went with the S&W M&P 9 Compact. Having shot a loved the .40 quite a bit, I went with the 9mm to start with to save a little on ammo cost for the time being. I'm sure there will be more handguns bought in the future, although I'm very interested in getting into an AR build... Any suggestions on that would be appreciated! I've seen classes offered to build your own AR..wondering if that would be essential or if I should just purchase something off the web.

    So in the meantime of picking up my gun, I've been ordering some things such as a range bag from voodoo tactical, a 511 operators belt, a holster from n82 tactical, and also a couple of extra magazines for range use.

    I have been searching for an answer to a question that had crossed my mind, if I were to carry an extra mag or two... I was wondering how to conceal it, or if it even needs to be concealed. I would assume it would since NY is conceal carry only, but wasn't sure how to go about concealing an extra mag.. NY is 10 round capacity so for those who might say you have 17 rounds if you cant get it done with that you shouldn't have a gun, yeah.. Although I know 10 rounds will be more than enough if the time came to use the pistol, however I would like to carry at least 1 extra mag. I have heard that some people just keep a mag in their jacket or front jean pocket... not sure how the jean thing would work.
    Any suggestions or other alternatives are also appreciated!

    Welcome from Michigan!

    Conceal the spare mag(s) on your opposite side in either an OWB or IWB mag carrier. Or, you could just pocket carry the spare mag.

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    I'd be careful with carrying a mag in your pocket. It's surprising how much lint & dirt you can find there. You don't want any of that getting inside. Then you have keys, change & other usual junk found in men's pockets that can bang against the mag. I carry mine on my belt in a mag holder. It certainly doesn't take any room. I still have space for my cell phone & multi-tool. I cobbled one together from an old LED flashlight holder & some ShoeGoo which held a belt clip from an old cell phone holder. I made two of them. They work good. Easy rapid access. You can also get mag holders commercially made.

    I hear you. There is certainly a lot of crap in my pocket, wouldn't want any of that getting into the magazine at all.

    I was looking at OfficerStore.com: Uncle Mike's Kydex Single Mag Holder, Fits Double Stacked Magazine
    I just rarely wear any baggy shirts to conceal a mag holder on my weak side.
