How do you carry spare mags?
1. How do you carry a spare mag?
2. What brand?
3. IWB or OWB or other?

Don't remember the brand but got a single mag holder (hard side) with a spring-clip for about $12 from Bo ..... (they whose name shall not be mentioned).com. It was a friction type that held the mag very well.

I tried to make one myself, out of a knife pouch of all things..

Worked great for about 2 whole hours.

I am now in the process of trying to find a single mag pouch for a reasonable price, since I only have two 15 round mags and one of them is in the 19 when I'm carrying (even though I could legally carry the 33 round mags, I'd prefer not to when CCW'ing.. lol)

Galco single magazine carrier made from leather.
It is leather worn on the outside of the belt and attached by a polymer J clip.

I have several of them for different sized magazines. This one will fit double stack magazines fairly tightly.

I use a old cell phone holder, holds two 13 round G23 mags or one mag and a 5.11 ATAC-A1 flashlight, which is how I normally carry it...I figure 26 rounds and a flashlight is better than 39 rounds and in the it conceals very well...looks like what it is supposed to look like....a phone holder..

I carry a single spare magazine in this:

Model # 123-83-2 holds my 15 and 17 round PPQ magazines just fine and it conceals well. I have a few other horizontal style OWB and IWB single mag pouches collecting dust.

I just throw it in a pocket. No need to have another thing hiding on my belt.

I would, but the problem with that is the pocket lint, loose tobacco that falls out from the pack, etc..

If I were to carry in pocket, it would need something covering the tip (where the bullets go)

Weak side(left for me) owb. Currently in a BlackHawk single mag carrier I got for 20 bucks at my LGS. I recently ordered a Mitch Rosen MBS express for 50 bucks plus shipping. I carry an XDM 3.8 .40.

These looked interesting and well designed. Good reviews as well. Will know tomorrow when they arrive. Price is great and communication with the owner was fantastic.

I carry a Glock 13 round mag for my model 30 in a Glock brand mag pouch OWB.

Your welcome.

I do not carry spare mag, I carry a spare handgun. Usually a Seecamp 380 or a S&W J frame.

nosuchagency 02-18-2013 21:12
primarily the comp-tac tek-lok single on the left (for which i have one for each of my permit pistols).

Sgt.K 02-18-2013 21:24

Nylon velcro flap made by Pass Port. Weak side OWB with the clip. When I carry my G19 I use one that will hold a G17 mag w/a plus 2 and when it is my PM9 I carry one that holds the 7 round extended. Sort of discrete/stealth if I have my shirt tucked in.

OWB in a Kytex mag pouch. Great product!!

cadillacguns 02-19-2013 04:01

OWB kydex, where do you get the comp-tac tek-lok?

Oh, and my car door has a G-22 mag, and my consol does to, so around my car or in my pocket I always have a spare.

Me too. I haven't needed to strip the mag and clean out the lint yet, either.

EBay seller that I know makes custom knife sheaths and mag holders. I went for a plain black one for a g17 mag for my g26. Here's a picture.
