Safariland kydex single mag pouch on my support hip if carrying the pistol IWB, which is most common. Comp-Tac IWB mag pouch in the same place when carrying OWB and concealed. Don't have the room in my pants to fit both items IWB.

Galco does. Somebody mentioned it earlier in the thread.

These guys are great:

Holds tight to the body. Less than 2 week turnaround and the price is pretty good.

I have a little pocket on the side of my khaki cargo pants that fits a G26 mag perfectly.

I use these, for all carry guns.

They are quick on/off, and hold very securely. You can keep a few in the car and put them on a belt quickly if you ever needed to carry more ammo, and can remove them easily if you need to take them off without undoing the belt.

I'm of the opinion, that you should ALWAYS carry at least one spare mag. In the vast majority of encounters you won't need the ammo, but you MIGHT have a magazine failure. Many failures can be attributed to the magazine, and you CANNOT complete a level 2 malfunction drill (such as a double feed) without a spare mag.

For 29.99, it is cheap insurance.

FWIW, i always carry it weak side, bullets pointing forward toward my centerline.

If Ken Null is still in business, he makes one. This may have validity for reloading while crouching down behind cover.

Double stack, I use this.

Single stack, a large smartphone case holds two magazines nicely.
for revolver folks, small flip phone case holds two speed strips.

I use a nylon knife sheath with a velcro flap, that rides horizontally on my belt at about 7:00.

Generally in my weakside cargo pocket, rear most interior mag pocket. The front most one is where my light resides. Truspec 24/7 pants. I just like the pocket layout of the truspec better than other brands. Plus the velcro placement on the flap of the pocket generally keeps stuff in the pocket, should I find myself in an odd position.

My cargo pants have a small cargo pocket high on the thigh that is the perfect size for a single mag. I carry my spare there and that is home to my barney mag in USPSA matches.

desantis makes an ankle rig that has 2 slots, you could 2 mags, 1 mag with flashlight, 1 mag with tourniquet, etc. I use it but only when i have run out of space elsewhere, its not as comfortable as the glock 26 in galco on the other ankle. Safariland makes a simple metal clip I used regularly for 3 years. It is now in the junk pile because i lost a glock magazine in a parking lot...i think. It would probably work well for guys without a muffin top, but my fat hip pushed the mag outwards.

Concealment is my number one priority.
Extra mag is carried in a Schrade LB7 belt pouch on weak side at 2:00.
Appears to be holding a knife, not a mag.
Carry pistol at 7:30 in a Super Tuck.

I use a Buck folding knife case for my Shield mag or my PX4 SC mag. Works well

I carry two magazines on the belt in a leather double carrier. Rounds facing forward and silicone lubed inside-super fast to the weapon. Chris

I always carry 1 spare mag on my support side in a belt mounted holster. I don't like to carry a loose mag in a pocket.

Left side belt carry in a generic nylon knife pouch with Velcro secured flap. Looks innocuous and protects the mag too.
