Who carries a spare mag? And how?

Hi All,

I've never concealed-carried a spare mag. Not in 2002-2005 when I had my G26, and not currently with my G19 (IWB, ~1oclock). I've always justified it as: any number more than zero rounds is infinitely more reassuring than none, but adding a mag pouch to my already-lumpy waistline would increase the risk of being 'made'.

Lately, I've been considering something like:



Riding horizontal, maybe around 10,11oclock...

Any guidance/advice/hard-learned lessons?

Thanks!

Just added a G30S to my EDC rotation so I'm carrying a G21 13 round magazine at 07:00 in a Blackhawk or Bianchi (?) ballistic nylon single magazine pouch. Works very well for me.

I sometimes carry a Wilderness System horizontal mag pouch http://www.thewilderness.com/magazin...stack-updated/ (like that, but horizontal instead of vertical), in the woods. Sometimes a vertical Minotar Comp-Tac mag pouch http://www.comp-tac.com/product_info...roducts_id=135 , around town. But rarely either, unless I am going into what I think might be an extra dangerous area.

Who carries a spare mag? And how?

Spare 16rd mag In a Mitch Rosen Mag holster on opposite side. While the extra rounds are a plus, I carry it incase of a failure that would be faster to rip old out and insert new in.

I carry a G26 at 4 o'clock with a spare G19 (15 round) mag in a Galco Horizontal Mag holder at 1 o'clock.

I carry two extra xds 9mm 7 round mags in a nylon carrier with Velcro flaps in my left back pocket, like a second wallet. Works well for small single stack mags.

I always carry two ex-mag's plus 100 rounds in the glove box of my truck. You never know what may happen? Like the Mike Brown thing. I would not want to be driving down the road & drive into something like that. The more ammo the better.

Whether I'm appendix carrying a 1911, a Glock 26, or my new Walther PPQ, I always carry a spare mag in my weak side pocket in a Desantis magazine pocket holster.

When I carry an extra mag I just put it in my left pants pocket.

Many ways, in off side pocket in a kydex sleeve, Off side kydex IWB holster, raw commando, spare mag loose in offside pocket, pocket holster with flashlight combo, and/or a small nylon pouch so the bad guys think I am carrying a leatherman.

Mag pouch on weak side or inside cargo pocket. I use a lot of 5.11 shorts and trousers and their cargo pockets have a couple of smaller pockets inside.

I thought that was what the extra pockets on my pants were for. Keys in one, wallet in another, then snot rag and spare mag. What else would it be for?
