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 dark....plus it conceals very well...looks like what it is supposed to look like....a phone holder..

I carry a single spare magazine in this: http://www.safariland.com/DutyGear/product.aspx?pid=123

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 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)

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

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 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.

In my door pocket, glovebox, pack, tac bag, computer bag. junk drawer, night stand, motorcycle glovebox, and in a single or double mag carrier on my belt. Galco/Bianchi/Blackhawk/Glock. Sometimes no carrier, just one in a pocket.

it's a pocket holster that I assume you keep in the pocket on the strong side. in a crisis you reach in and immediately pull the weapon.... now the spare is still in the pocket on the strong side, while your strong hand is otherwise engaged with the weapon... doesn't make much sense to carry a spare on strong side unless you can still get to it with weak hand i.e. on the waistband. I've tried to get my keys out of my pocket with the opposite hand and it looks like having a seizure...

I wear two Don Hume clip on leather mag holders on my weak-side hip. Been using them for about four years. Work great, stay in place, and look good. No Velcro flaps to deal with and no problems of magazines slipping out. I use them in IDPA, as well.

For someone wanting a case on the cheap. Walmart was selling the Blackhawk nylon single mag carrier a while back for about 10 bucks. They were actually pretty nice for the price and made in America.
