Concealment Magazine Carrier

I’ve been using the BFG Belt mount ten-speed pouches for low/no vis work. 

Light weight, good retention, very thin, holds pretty much anything that’ll fit in the elastic. Adjustable for a variety of width/thickness of belts. Avail in single or double pistol configuration.

Blackhawk makes a clip on carrier, single or double stack for about 20 bucks. Damn thing disappears under any light shirt like a polo.

I put on an RCS old school mag carrier for the evening. Wasn’t even a thing. Of course they are mag specific so that BFG option is probably your best bet if you want one solution for double and single stack mags.

For single mag, I really like the simplicity of the NeoMag.

Mag and clip just disappears in your front pocket. Holds the mag well (I use it with Glock OEM mags) and it slides right out when you need it.

For double mag, I use a Comp Tac kydex holder. Love it. Very comfortable and good retention.

For Low-Vis I'm really digging the BFG belt 10 speed. Works with the double stacks I own (M&P, USP Compact, P30), and can be run double mag or mag and light.

Unknown if single stacks would be secure. 7rd M&P is just barely too short to bottom out but *should* be secure.

I’ve been using the neonatal for over a year and like it, works well but it you find yourself running or jumping the magnet can give way, the times that has happened the mag just fell to the bottom of my pocket. It’s good for concealment but just keep that in mind. I’ve used the BFG ones some, I like them ok? Just usually prefer my neomag or Bravo/ Raven single mag pouch.

I've been using the HSGI Belt Mounted Pouches for Everything from Magazines, Flashlights, pepper spray to Baton's.  
Running them under Sports coats to Hawaiian Shirts.
And the price is exceptional for the quality IMHO.

For Glock mags I haven't found anything as thin and holds the mags as close to the body as the ghetto  Glock mag holders.  Two allows you to move them around to minimize printing. 

I cut down the forward corner portion of the mouth and top backside so as to have minimal contact with the holder when gripping the mag.   They are still secure because of a detent that engages the mag so you can do backflips at the bar.

I've been running the same JMCK AIWB mag carrier for about a year now.  The only thing I did  was change it from a belt clip to a pull the dot loop.  Moves with me better that way.  Totally disappears under the lightest of cover garments.  Mags don't quite snap into place but do make a little snick sound when seated fully.  I like it.  The best I've used over the past 6 or so years.

For IWB use, I prefer the TT Gunleather Single Mag Holder.  It's exceptionally comfortable.  I have mine made without the sweat guard so that I can actually get my thumb behind the mag.
 
For OWB use, JM Custom Kydex is my go-to.  If I'm carry a single mag, I like his SPMP v1, as it contours nicely to the hip, and having offset loops helps to pull the carrier in tight.  If I'm carrying two mags, I prefer the SPMP v2.  That carrier still rides close to the hip, and I think it takes up about as little horizontal  real estate as one could possibly hope for while still being capable of retention adjustment.
 
I've also tried Raven's Legacy Modular Carrier with drop loops and the MD cut, which I like almost as much as the JM v1 carrier for use when carrying a single mag.  Gave their new Copia a shot, but I didn't find that it did anything for me that the JM does as well, if not better.  I don't switch carry guns, so I don't benefit from the universal fit.
 
Finally, I've tried the CCC Basic Magazine Carrier, which is nice, and takes up even less real estate than the JM SPMP v2, but at the cost of losing the retention adjustment, and the JM carrier subjectively tucks in closer.

Have seen these but didn't have a whole lot of faith the device would detach & stay in the pocket rather than fubar'ing my reload. How stout is that clip? Any issues with it failing to detach? 

For jnc - my usual concealed mag pouch is a pocket mag pouch from DeSantis.

Raven Pocketshield.

I have a BFG 10 speed double pistol mag pouch on my pocket shield. Light and mag go in the mag pouch, and knife gets clipped right to the shield. It fits well in most pants pockets, and the wings on the pocketshield allow for a decent, clean draw.

Clip is very solid. There’s also a little soft rubber disk that the clips sits on. So - when it’s in your pocket, the rubber disk is inside your pocket and the stout metal clip is outside, sandwiching the material of the pants between the clip and the rubber disk.

The mag just slides out. Sometimes with small mags (Kahn PM9 mag) the mag falls out to the bottom of my pocket. 

I always carry a full-size Glock mag as a reload when carrying my G23 or G27, and it rides in there awesomely.

No idea for a single carrier for both types of mags. I treat them like holsters, and try not to go generic. 

I regularly use some kydex carriers... but...have no memory and for reasons that elude me none are, unlike holsters, marked. Similar to some of the above linked JMCK, and one may be that. One pancake, one wraparound. 

Anyway, both (one for 9mm M&P, one for Kahr) are set up to be IWB, with a single clip around/over the belt. Work just fine, but need to be positioned carefully or they seem to be able to always find the bone in my hips. Can be hard to find a comfy, non-printing point on the left side, so one of my favorite places is AIWB, when I carry the gun behind the hip. 

The other place I often carry the Kahr one (the other is too big) is the spare little zippered pocket in my Screeline pants/shorts. Yes, in the mag carrier. It works great to keep the bullets in (Kahr syndrome) and keeps the mag oriented so it doesn't flop sideways and print or get uncomfortable, so it's not that hard to draw at a decent speed as it's oriented right.

For my smaller LC9 mags I use Kytex Shooting Gear mag carriers. I used to use them for my Glock mags but found them to lose tension on the mags and on the belt attachment with the heavier mags. Perfect for the lightweight LC9 mags.

I usually carry a G19 with G17 spare, although I also carry a 9mm Shield and 2 spare mags for NPE. I like using single OWB mag carriers with belt clips for easy on/off. I have used many different brands over the years for both single and double stack mags. I really like the JM Custom single mag pouch-version 3. Minimal bulk, easy on off, durable clips (have not broken one yet....and I am HARD on them). Be sure to check the mag tension screw from time to time or you may end up with a mag on the office floor 😁

Another option for Amazon users is the Multi Holster Elite Single Mag Holster. This pouch is a little taller than the JM one, which works fine for full size G17 mags, but may cover up too much of shorter mags for a good grip on the reload. I have been wearing  one with a G17 mag for over 18 months now. Has held up well. I use Amazon Prime and really like that you can get this mag pouch for 28 bucks in 2 days to your front door.

I have used the Blackhawk clip on single mag pouches. . They are very versatile to accommodate mags of various sizes/manufacturers. They use a bowed spring clip inside the pouch to automatically adjust to almost any size mag. This also makes them very bulky and they stick out farther from the belt than most other mag pouches. I predominantly use them as a back up for all of my "other" guns that I shoot, but don't normally carry (works well for my Sig, Beretta, and CZ mags). Only having to buy 1 mag pouch that fits many different sized magazines makes this worth having, but there are much better options available for dedicated carry of a specific mag. There are seperate versions for double and single stacks, so get one of each to throw in your range bag (great loaner and backup pouch).

Regards,

Sean
