    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    I don't carry a gun, so I've never seen the need to carry magazines.

    I carry them in my off-side pocket. Just like I carry my speed strips when packing a revolver. No matter what I'm carrying that's where my reload will be - for consistency.

    I have a nifty little nylon holster that came long ago with a clever, but long-since-dead little flashlight from the "BigBox" store. It fits the 10-round KelTec (or the 12-round S&W mag for the KelTec P-11, and has a long velcro closure) It is a slide-on-the-belt job, and it resides at about 8:45 on my belt. Small, unobtrusive, soft, quiet and convenient, and does not come open unless I want it to.

    I carry a Springfield XD40 in a Serpa holster setup for cross draw at the one o'clock position as I am left-handed.
    I carry 2 spare mags in an Uncle Mikes double mag carrier at the 4 o'clock position.
    The carrier's 2 flaps are Velcro not snaps unfortunately. By having them there I can be reaching for a loaded replacement mag while shooting left-handed.
    The hand finds hand method of reloading without looking away from the action ( the going ons, not the gun)
    My knife and phone are carried on my left side to somewhat counter balance the weight.
    FWIW everything is positioned to be easily accessible without interfering or be pressing into me while seated in my truck or on one of my mobility scooters.

    These days I find myself wearing the surfeit of tactical pants and shorts I have, so I stick a magazine in the mag pocket of the pants.

    This is same style DeSantis I use. Have one each for my single (709/740 & R51) and double stack mags (M&P 40C/ Mil G2/ Sigma, SD's), and all other double stack. Well made, functions well.

    These days I am more likely to carry a second handgun than a spare magazine.

    As a civilian and committed Old Fart I am unlikely to have to make a traffic stop, serve a warrant, answer a domestic dispute call or even take offense by someone's driving. I'm seldom in a hurry and have no problem queuing and waiting my turn. If someone really is in a rush and needs to butt in line or pass me on the highway I understand.

    So that brings up the issue of what might go wrong and in my case it is more likely that my primary gun failed (jam, misfire, part break, ... ) then that I run out of ammo. In such cases simply switching to a new handgun is the quickest and surest solution.

    Fortunately today there is a wealth of small reliable pocket-able choices out there.

    The next handgun I buy will be the next to last handgun I ever buy!

    Keep my Canik's extra mag in left front pocket, in a Remora mag carrier. Keep my PF-9's mag in front right watch pocket, when available, else in left front with other mag.

    I carry the same gun and have not changed it in about 8 months. It is a Bond Arms Bullpup in 9mm and I carry a spare magazine occasionally. I order my leather from a custom holster maker and he makes a mag holder when he makes me a new holster.

    I carry OWB with the holster about 3 to 4 o'clock and the mag pouch horizontal about 11 o'clock.
