Hi Bill and welcome :smilez: (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.
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.
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! :haha:
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".....:image035:
Edit 04 26 06: Holster canceled pending resolution of Skyy matter (lack of confidence as CC weapon).
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
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
