I wasn't sure of the correct terminology, but I noticed
that some of the folks this past weekend when Bamatrooper
came out, had magazine holders that could hold up to
4-5 magazines. I have only seen the double holders
online. Who makes these?

No this was something that you could wear on a belt.
It may have been a 3 mag case & a 2 mag case. Although
it appeared as one. I think he was wearing it on a duty belt.

Comptac makes one called the belt-feed. I think it's a four mag offset belt pouch if I remember it correctly. Google it. Hope that helps.

Belt mag carriers are totally unnecessary in GSSF competition and should be discussed elsewhere.

DannyR the reason I asked this question was because
of the fact that you can use 4 magazines per stage,
& I thought this might be the easiest way to carry them.

Experienced GSSF shooters carry all their equipment to the shooting table in a range bag. Two of the three stages require only 3 mags. Shooters lay their mags on the shooting table or barrel top. I use two mag carriers that hold 6 magazines each per entry. They are not belt carriers.

Almost everyone "experienced" (ie, been to more than one match) shoots more than one entry. I shot two entries (Am Civ and Competition) my first couple of years and added a 3rd entry (Major Sub) last year. You'd need to be able to put 12 mags on your belt then.... so what do you do?

Forget belt mag pouches.

Money has it the dude you saw was not someone who shoots a lot of GSSF matches. Just like the dudes walking around with the tactical thigh holsters.... a joke.

Agree with DannyR and Ron59 - GSSF is a table shoot match - no need for holster or mag pouches. Although I'm not being critical of those that use them for GSSF; admittedly, I don't understand why.

For me, the ideal number of mags per entry is 11 (3+3+4+1 stripper mag). Anyone know of a cheap mag storage case/bag that holds 11 mags - I'd like to put it inside my Glock single pistol case instead of just storing the mags loose in the case.

Thanx for any feedback.

Don,

I use California Competition 6-packs, two per entry. Different color for each caliber.

Todd,

The most useful thing to carry other than your range bag is a folding chair.

I have the Midway Competition (Big Bag) that has everything in it.
I also bring my Midway Compact Bag, When I get to the GSSF Match, I put my 3 pistols, Ammo, Speed Loader & Magazines in the Compact Bag and carry that around. If I need something from my Big bag (parts, different glasses etc) which I never do then I walk back to my truck and get it.
I do see a couple Barney Fife Wanna Be's walking around with their Tactical Holsters on..

Mobile is a County Sheriff's range and Bama was training (for the most part) Sheriff's Deputies. It's likely that none have shot GSSF before, but it accounts for mag holsters and tactical gear. I look rather tacti-cool myself, on CG patrol. :patriot:

Here you go Todd. Enough room for 4 guns and 40 mags. Shoot 4 categories without ever having to reload a mag during the match.

Holster, mag pouches, tactical belt. That's just extra weight when already carrying a heavy load, especially the ammo when shooting three entries. The bag and maybe a wagon but nothing unnecessary. :fishing:

The neat thing about mine in the pic above is that you can carry the entire bag which has several extra pouches or just take the center section out and only carry your guns and loaded mags. You have room for 2 Glocks in the zipper compartments on each side plus 40 already loaded mags in the center section. The center insert has carry handles and rings so you can snap on the shoulder stap to carry. Works great.

I use the Midway Tactical Pistol Case for each gun and its mags. It often goes on sale for $9.99, and comes in various colors to help keep things organized.

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/939160870/midwayusa-tactical-pistol-case

It holds seven mags on one side, and the two large pockets on the other side can hold 4 or 5 additional mags each, with the gun in the middle zippered compartment. If you don't have that many mags, the pockets easily hold boxes of ammo and a loader to load up between stages.

Best solution I have found so far, and I usually shoot 3 or 4 classes at the match.

Hey Don, who makes that bag? I can't tell from the pic. :fishing:

Its a Shooters Connection Tournament Series bag. Its about 23" long x 15" wide x 10" deep. One end has a zipper compartment and a bottle holder built in, the other end has a larger zippered compartment (where I keep my ear protectors). One side has 2 zipper compartment and the other side has a large zipper compartment. The inside has a slash compartment on each side. The lift out inside bag has a zipper compartment on each side that will easily hold 2 Glocks in each side plus an open center section where I carry 40 mags. Has a large shoulder strap on the outer bag which can be unsnapped and connected to the smaller inner bag which is usually how I use it during the match. I have had it 11 years and over 130 GSSF outdoor matches and its still good as new condition.

Not all of us. The only reason I carry my range bag is because I shoot different guns or more than one entry with the same gun. When I wear a belt, I wear 2 Alabama Holster double mag pouches (will get more when his order back log is down), a single AHC mag pouch and whatever other ones I have lying around.

I carry a gun at work and when I am off. so to me, any added repetitions of drawing the gun from the holster, removing a mag from pouch and loading the gun are beneficial.

Todd, I think the ones you saw were from Safariland or Bianchi and they were duty gear type UNLESS it was Sgt Robinson or Cpt Cassady; theirs might have been some sort of competition set up. I will ask when I get back to work and see what they use.

Here is what my mags sit in inside the smaller inner bag. They are made from the cardboard magazine storage boxes like they use in the library. When I empty a mag I just put it back in the same place upside down.

THAT is how you set up for GSSF:wow:!!! I use a large CED competition range bag but in all honesty, it's the best bag Ive found for USPSA but it's nothing near what Don has there, that's an excellent setup. Of course I only carry 4 mags per entry, 16 total, but im working on getting another 32 to round out my typical four entries. How about a link to your gear Don? You've peaked by interest.
On a side note if you're going to be shooting Beckley Saturday morning and you need mags let me know and I'll bring a couple extras that you can borrow for the day. I'm shooting my IPSC open division G22 (40) on Saturday in UL so four of my G17 mags will be freed up that day.

Don At PC
08-08-2012, 12:38
I know I will not be shooting Beckley this weeken as I am on hold for Cataract Surgery. It was supposed to be done this past Monday 6th but my surgeon had to change it till Aug. 20th. Hopefully I will be healed and ready for Conyers, Mobile, Lexington and San Antonio. Good Luck this weekend.

I will see if I can get a pic posted of my inner bag setup by itself. It is very comfortable to carry on the range as opposed to the entire big bag. Having the big bag set up this way means I always have all I need for a match in one place ready to go.

Thanks for the info on the bag. I'll look into that one; Uncle Mike's is good but there's always room for improvement. Bama Trooper-I take your point that, based on your job, the holster makes sense. :fishing:

I had a shooter come up with his Glock, floppin' around in a small burlap sack. Seems another RO allegedly told him he couldn't use his Glock box - had to be holstered or 'bagged'. Of course an organized and concerned RO would have no idea if that gun is really clear, or where the muzzle's pointed at any given time.

Like I say, I could write a book...

That bag is identical to the MidwayUSA competition Range Bag that I have, it is a great bag. The midway one is less than half the price of the Shooters Connection one.

I would much rather carry 30 mags on my belt, than in a range bag over my shoulder.

Currently I use 2 (Wal-Mart) plastic sport-gear boxes for gun(s) and mags, but would certainly entertain a system like this that transfers that weight to my belt. I can carry on my belt all day long.
