    I must admit I've been slacking on packing a spare mag lately. :embarassed: I know, I know... I used to be good about it. I think I need a new mag carrier... Curious what's working for people out there.


    So please tell me. Do you carry a spare mag? How many? In what? And where is it located? THANKS! :wavey:

    Well at them moment I think it is in the center console of my truck. I'm sitting in a hotel room. I guess I figure if 10 rounds doesn't get me out of a situation then f-it. I just don't have enough belt to carry all the stuff that some people on here do.

    Same here. Mine is usually in my vehicle if I'm out and about. I never carry a spare mag on me.

    I carry two spare G19 or G30 mags all the time. I combined two glock mag holsters using CompTac screws. I also carry cell phone, keys, cigs, wallet, and one or two knives. Oh and a glock in a CompTac MTac. Sometimes carry my LCP in my cargo pocket in an Uncle Mikes pocket holster along with my primary. All hidden with a normal sized t-shirt or button down shirt. I live in South Florida so I like to keep it light as it gets pretty hot down here.

    Safariland 123 at 10-11 o'clock. < $20, very concealable, doesn't poke me in the side like verticals do, and I can clip my 4.5" tactical light to the underside.

    I love this mag holster. I am needing to get a second one for the DB9 mag.

    45 ACP: One 17 round Arredondo magazine carried on the opposite side of my belt and in a single Blade-Tech Kydex belt pouch that's fitted with a quick on/off Tek-Lok clasp.

    9MM: Two 17 round magazines carried in two single #250 Hellweg open-top speed pouches that are located on the other side of my belt. (Not a generally well-known company, here, in America; but I've been using their high quality leather goods for more than a quarter century.)

    I keep a 15 round mag of UA 200gr XTP's, and a 20 round mag of UA 200gr FMJ in a Fobus in my truck. For when I don't want to carry a reload, it's still there.

    Back pocket in a wallet holster.

    The G19 only has the light on it for night-stand duty.

    oh come on, carry it! haha my EDC is a 22 with a TLR-2. Only issue is finding a quality concealable holster for the setup.

    Have you fired it with the light ? i've noticed some recoil reduction due to the extra few ounces :)

    Cargo pants pocket, belt may holder, sport coat inner breast pocket - whatever suits the duds of the day. I carry a Kahr CW9 and/or a Taurus 709 in pretty deep carry. With 7 or 8+1 spare mags are a must IMHO.

    Yeah, it shoots like a dream with the light on. Find me an MTAC body to support the light and I'll carry it :cool:

    Issue i have with mine is whenever i take the light off.....then put it back on the weapon. My laser sighting gets messed up. usually a inch to the left, so i have to re-adjust it :(

    I always carry a spare mag. Just hate the thought of shooting dry, and having no reload. I'm not as concerned about having a fast reload, as just having a reload.

    So I carry a spare mag in my pocket. Usually in a nylon mag pouch. If carrying a snubby, I carry the reload in a flat pouch.

    90% of the time in a OWB kydex holder. When I am wearing a tighter shirt it's in my weak side pocket. Regardless I always have a one on me. Gun only holds seven so I want a bit more plus theres always a chance of a magazine malfunction.

    Usually have a spare mag in my off side front pocket. Also a bug in the other front pocket. Most of the time, I might leave the bug at home but I always have a spare mag on me.

    I usually carry one spare on me but sometimes I carry two. I carry my spare on my weak side on my belt. It sits in a Raven Concealment magazine holder with all the Magpul Dynamics options.
