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.

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.

Ok this may sound strange , but I am a devout DIY freak. I don't know what kind of tape I used by brand , it is a cloth based product with a friction type adhesive . Sort of like Hockey stick tape, but the adhesive is not gooey. I cut the side of a plastic milk carton , played around with cutting them up till I got a decent pattern. Folded it over on the Mag:a Kahr P9C and a Walther P99c . wrapped the tape tight enough to get a tight fit, but loose enough for an easy strip off. Hit it for a few minutes with a warm hair dryer. I have carried one daily for over a year with no wear and better yet , no woolly boogers in the mag . It actually works and costs nothing . Since I just pocket carry it I never worried about making a clip for it , but I imagine it could be done .

I want to carry G17 mag for mt G19.

Does anyone carry it horizontal? The cell phone case is a good idea.

Would a horizontal mag holder print less than a vertical one?

I carry a spare on the outside of the Sitka sling bag. I will also carry one for the pocket pistol in the watch pocket in my jeans or in a jacket pocket.

If you’re in a gunfight:
- If you’re not shooting, you should be loading.
- If you’re not loading, you should be moving.
- If you’re not moving, you’re dead.

Suggested homework assignment:

From a prone position behind a 6 inch high block, simulating using a street curb for cover, do a speed reload while minimizing your exposure.

Use either a self loader or revolver ... your choice.

I use a Don Hume leather mag pouch OWB on the weak side, with a G26 on the strong side IWB (appendix location). I used to carry a mag in a pocket but it got way too crudded up with lint and other stuff that way. I also tried a cell phone holder but the one I had, you could rotate the holder all the way around and I found the mag would fall to the ground way too much. I think the money I spent on a real mag pouch was well worth it.
Anti-gunners seem to believe we can have utopia if we just pass enough laws. But, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

In a SmartCarry holster, or Fobus single or twin paddle for CCW. In a duty belt mag carrier when on duty, in multiple CR Speed mag holders in competition.

Almost always wear some type of wrangler cargo pants/shorts. No shortage of space in them so it goes in a pocket.

I generally do NOT carry an extra mag for my G23.

I do however carry many mags to the range, and include my Fobus double-mag paddle unit.

It is easy to load and unload and carried on the weak-side is an easily concealed method.
