I used to carry a horizontal mag pouch at about 1:00, in the empty space where speedloader pouches went, when we had revolvers. Tops turned toward the belt buckle. It is comfortable, fast to reload and you can reload while sitting in a car, if it ever comes up. It also allows more space on the left-hand side for flashlights or whatever.
"Liberal" is when you hire others to use a guns to protect you, so you can pretend guns aren't necessary.
