What's your source for that style of mag holder? Thanks
Sorry, I've been away from the computer for a few days. I ordered it from:

http://www.dalefrickeholsters.com/products.php

It's the Joab Appendix carry. There's a holster and a mag pouch. I don't have the holster, but I ordered the Mag pouch. It actually came in a few days ago (he says he has a 2 week backup on orders right now, but mine shipped in a week). I've been using it since I got it and I love it. I hardly know it's there. It's very comfortable, and since it sits along the belt instead of perpendicular to it, it's easy to conceal and it doesn't dig into my stomach when I sit down. It holds the mag very nicely, and ha adjustable retention. It's a bit spendy (about $50 after shipping), but worth it, I think.

Good topic....

This is a good subject.
I gave this point some thought a few years back & decided I'd carry spare mags in rear/back hip(right side). I'm left handed & would want to maintain the same draw/reload method for duty-uniform details as a EP or concealed carry(off duty) draw.

The back-rear carry method would conceal the spare mags but still have a swift smooth motion.

Muscle memory & reflex are common too. You won't shift around looking for magazines in a high stress event. ;

My main CCW is a S&W Shield and I carry a spare mag in a Leatherman multi tool pouch on my weak side.

Generally in the truck or cantle bag.

If I'm lazy, I carry one in my weak side cargo pants front pocket. When more industrious, in a Jeff Hays OWB mag carrier.

Doesn't carrying spare mags OWB (unless it is a discrete pouch like one that looks like a knife pouch), kinda defeat the purpose of CC?

Also, are there any pouches that are better for single stack mags, as opposed to the wider double stack mags? I've got a Shield (single stack) and am specifically looking for one that covers the mag (like a knife pouch on the belt look).

I carry my spare magazine in my left front pocket, if I've got the 709 Slim on me.
However, I plan to get an XDM9 Compact or XDM40 Compact sometime this year, so IWB all the way.

The one I noted was good for both 1911 mag and M&P as it was slightly flexible.

It depends. Many people can conceal a handgun in an OWB holster. Under a concealing garment, even if the mag pouch prints, it'll look like a cell phone holder, or knife holder. However, I have an OWB mag pouch that conceals very well, under nothing more than a T-shirt. I've already mentioned it in this thread, the Dale Fricke horizontal mag pouch.

Obviously if you're wearing a tucked shirt, it's not going to work, but in that case most traditional methods of concealment won't work anyway, unless you have a coat or vest on over, in which case, this mag pouch would still work.

CC Where to you carry your extra magazine(s)

I just applied for my ccw and I bought a fobus double mag paddle holster for my 1911 mags, easy on/off, secure and hides easily under an untucked shirt.

I have a kydex holster from comp tac for my spare mag that i carry on my support hand side behind an Ontario Rat 3 knife. Works well for me, and helps balance out the P2000 on the other side.

When I carry a spare magazine, it goes in my back pocket (weak hand side).

I wear a vest for work (photographer) to carry extra lenses, notebooks, etc... I decided to upgrade and got a concealment vest from Sportsmansguide. It has three inside pockets to carry a variety of different sized weapons and has five magazine pockets and six shell loops for small caliber cartridges. I usually carry an LCR or J-frame, but one of the pockets is big enough to fit a full sized 1911 if I so desire. I don't know what your situation is, but a concealment vest is a great option.

All of my carry holsters have a mag pouch attached.

Mbritt I wear either a button down shirt untucked, or a cover jacket and have never had anyone notice (at least not vocalize to me) that they knew it was there, other than people who already knew I had it. Both the gun, mag, and knife are OWB on my setup, with a flashlight clipped to my pocket.
