    How do y'all carry extra magazines?

    I imagine this has probably been covered before, but since there wasn't one near the top, I am sure the info would probably be out of date anyway. So I have been thinking about carrying a spare mag, maybe two. I don't know if I want a plastic or kydex carrier though. So what do you guys use?

    I use my left hand back pocket. Magazine remains vertical, bottom up. If needed, being right handed, drop the empty or almost empty magazine, grab spare from back pocket and insert.

    A nylon clip-on mag holder on my left hip works for me. They make leather ones too but the nylon works just as good, IMO, and holds it there nice and steady.

    Just like the gentleman said, left rear pocket or left coat pocket in the winter.

    Dom Hume or Bianchi clip on single mag pouches.

    I prefer the Don Hume (model417) but I ran into a Bianchi thst works for my Para and Witness in the used holster box at a LGS. I like clip ons because i can get closer to the belt loop than the ones you have to thread onto the belt.

    I make mine. Kydex is cheap, and mag pouches are way easier to make than holsters .

    Left front pocket. Used to use mag pouches but then I came to my senses and that method of carry clutters my waist line.

    When OCing at 3:00 and belt clip for my phone at 9:00 no more clock space on the waist.

    I have tried nylon and leather mag pouches. I like the clips as they are easier to swap out or remove temporarily, however I have had the mag body catch and lift up and off on chairs or in the driver's seat. For that reason I pretty much have settled on the belt loop design. If it's in my back pocket it becomes a pain in the butt. Currently my two spare S&W Compact Shield mags are riding in a leather DeSantis mag pouch which features a belt loop with heavy snaps to remove it without taking the belt off. The snaps are so aggressive that I usually end up taking it off anyway. Just got a nylon compact dual mag pouch for the TCP magazines.

    You guys mind posting pictures so I can get an idea what you mean. I really just wish watch pockets were on the left side of jeans too. I have my oc in there, but if it were on the left side that would be great. Anyway, the back pocket isn't great for me, I'm a truck driver so I sit on my ass a lot.
