Here it is. Prices have apparently gone up. May be worth shopping around some.

Safariland 774 Competition Rifle Mag Pouches
http://www.copquest.com/23-8155.htm

Although described as "competition" pouches, they are duty-ready, open top kydex with adjustable tension and proper hardware for attachment to the shroud.
Quantity: 3
Total Cost: $76.80


Your choice of:
Safariland 6004-4 - Double Leg Strap Shroud Only
...or...
Safariland 6004-14 - Single Leg Strap Shroud Only
http://www.copquest.com/23-6265.htm

Single or double strap shroud based upon your preference.
Quantity: 1
Total Cost: $12.00


Safariland Thigh Leg Strap for 6004/6005 Holster - Single Strap
http://www.copquest.com/23-6500.htm

One or two of these depending on your preference in shroud.
Quantity: 1 or 2
Total Cost: $14.40 or $28.80


Safariland Complete Vertical Strap and Buckle for 6005 Holster
http://www.copquest.com/23-6385.htm

Pretty self explanatory. Go with the 6005 strap so that you get the QD buckle.
Quantity: 1
Total Cost: $32.00


TOTAL: $135.20 or $149.60

That's still $11 cheaper than buying the complete two strap shroud and the three mag pouches.

Alternatively, if you want to do the one strap, you can buy:

Safariland 6005-10 Small Tactical Leg Shroud w/1 leg strap - Detachable
http://www.copquest.com/23-6225.htm

Quantity: 1
Total Cost: $53.60


and the three magazines for $130.40 and have a one-strap shroud (albeit a slightly different one, I think) and three pouches for $5 less than piecing it together.

I'm actually a bit surprised by how prices have increased. May be worth tracking down a 6004 or 6005 on a forum, swapping the vertical strap for the QD one if necessary, and going from there. The current prices make me wish I would have bought parts to build some spares.

I actually carry my bug in my left side cargo pocket so when we do our bug quals that's where I draw/shoot from. First couple of times I did it & we switched to "weak hand" (which would mean changing to my strong hand if you're following at home) I got yelled at for doing the drill with the "wrong" hand & had to explain.

I would get a plate carrier. I have one with 3 30 round pmags, 3 extra glock 22 mags, 3 zip cuffs, and a medical kit. I am not "allowed" to wear one either...but I'd love to meet the guy who is going to yell at you for wearing it when rounds start flying...

Here's what I have on hand. Scalable of course to fit the situation. At the very minimum, I have two extra handgun magazines on my sam browne. If I need to deploy my rifle, the minimum load out to go with the rifle is a thigh rig with four extra 30 round magazines. If it starts to go sideways, my tac vest has three more 30 round M4 magazines, and two extra handgun magazines. If it gets worse, I have five more 30 rounders and a couple more handgun magazines that I can deploy.

In light of the **** shows I've been sent to lately, I want to have more available. Something I can throw on in a hurry. Plate carriers for patrol are not an option.

Anyone use one of these guys?
We use a Blackhawk drop leg. It holds 4 ar mags and snaps into a buckle worn on inner belt. Very fast to throw on. Costs about $40 for the drop leg pouch and $10 for belt adaptor.

Some guys use 3 pouches for mags and 1 for med supplies like tourn and qc.

My question to myself and out loud is how many guys train with their bailout bag? I am liking the thigh idea more and more. Much easier to deal with than a bag that you need to carry on your person somehow and not let it get in the way.

Have you thought of going with a drop leg MOLLE platform and then adding FASTMAGs to the platform?

I would think you could get as least 2 probably 3 M4/AR15 mags. You can then add FASTMAG pistol mags to the rifle mag holders.

I like the thigh pouches a lot. Some of our guys have 2 of the adaptors on their belt. Left side for ar mags and right side for a med supply dump pouch. Very fast to snap on and access once attached.

As officers do any of you see a time where there would ever be a need for some of these rigs w/ 5+ rifle mags?

Considering several on here have responded to active-shooter incidents, including a very recent major one, I'd say, "yes".

Incidents such as? Just trying to learn. 8 30 round mags seems to be quite a bit from my current perspective.

Early on in my career, in 1980, I was involved in a bank robbery/pursuit where a Deputy was killed, numerous Deputies and Officers were shot, a helicopter was shot down, and several thousands of rounds of ammunition were fired. Then fast forward to 1997, and deja vu all over again. Again my agency was involved in a band robbery where several thousand rounds were fired, and numerous officers and bystanders were shot. In 1999, again, my agency was involved with an active shooter who shot numerous people at a Jewish Synagogue. And intertwined in those high profile events have been several hundred shootings my agency has been involved in, not with thousands of rounds fired, but many in the hundreds. I was personally present at approximately 20 of them. The last being on December 9, 2012. During that time, I have fired my weapon on duty approximately 12 times, and been shot once. So you're asking me why I carry 12 30 round magazines?

Another option. I'm open to pretty much anything. I'm liking the one in my OP more and more.

I hear ya. The problem is storage and logistics of moving it in and out of my assigned car without a boss seeing it.

In these engagements how many rounds did you fire personally? How many rounds did each officer fire on average? How many suspects were involved in each of these engagements?

To be clear I only ask after seeing some of these rigs w/ more extensive load-outs than some of our Infantry guys.

Not questioning the decision just asking.

The pistol mag pouch fits on any molle system, but the AR mag pouch is actually part of the thigh mount itself. I bet TAG sells the AR shingle pack in a molle version by itself though, or if they don't they might be able to make it for you.

Absolutely.

Why do you feel that I shouldn't?
