Default Extra Magazine for EDC

Reading through the recent EDC thread got me wondering how many guys that carry a firearm actually carry an extra magazine.

If you do, how do you carry it? In the pocket or in a holster? What kind of holster?

Depending on the day, I usually try to throw an extra mag for my G19 or P365 in my pocket. I doubt I’ll ever need to use my gun, let alone an extra mag, but it would really suck to see your slide lock back on your gun and not have another mag to throw in.

I carry a Glock 43X in a T Rex Arms Raptor holster. I run my extra mag in a Neomag pocket clip holder in off-gun pocket. The Neomag is kinda hard to get on some jean pockets but it does hold the mag in place really well. T Rex Arms and Tier One Concealment also make holsters w/ an attached mag holder that’s all still inside the waistband but I haven’t tried those out yet. Neomag wasn’t too expensive.

I turn 21 later this year and will be carrying in a Tier 1 Concealed Axis Elite which is setup for an extra mag. The Neo Mag is one of the best ways to carry an extra mag if your holster doesn’t accommodate

I carry at least 2 or 3 extra mags when i carry my 1911 or shield. Glock 22 1 or 2. I use a uncle Mikes in pocket hilster for medium size auto pistol and carry in front pocket. Sometimes i use a blackhawk kydex mag pouch on the belt.

I carry an extra in a horizontal sheath on the off side. It either fits between belt loops or outside two loops so as not to move. Any leather worker can easily make one. Would post pic but don't know how.

I used to carry an extra mag in a belt holster, but I’m down to just the 365. I got tired of all the extra weight hanging on my pants. Hopefully I never have to resort to throwing my empty gun at a bad guy.

Same, I just pull the rounds and hit the mag with compressed air every weekend.

I carry an extra mag when I have my lcp. It only holds 6 rounds and the mag weighs nothing. I carry it in my left front pocket and don't realize it's there

In pocket. It's nice to have extra ammo, but the main reason I carry an extra magazine is because of a chance of malfunction. Most malfunctions are from magazine failure.

The “ holster” I use has two “ pockets” one for the weapon and one for spare mag.

Be careful with pockets, I've gotten pocket lint stuck in the feed lips a few times from that.

Luckily never had to use it for serious purposes but that would definitely caused a problem.

When I carried a G42 I carried with 8+1 and another 8rd mag in a small kydex IWB.

Now- I just carry a G19 with standard mag fully loaded. I do keep a spare mag in kydex clipped inside my truck for grab and go if needed. I also have my vest and duty mags if needed.

I don’t out of laziness and I’m a minimalist. I would like a hellcat or p365 for higher round count than the typical single stacks to make up for it.

Don't just think about an extra mag as extra ammo. Magazines can and will malfunction, so a double feed after the first round turns that 17 round mag into a single shot. I carry an extra mag any time I carry. It is usually in my offside back pocket next to my wallet. Like stated above, make sure to keep your mags clean and free of debris.

I usually carry an extra in my left front pocket, although I really don’t know why.

If you’re in a fight and reloading your carry gun out of a pocket, you’re already screwed.

No lint, water “ proof” liner against your body so sweat does not affect weapon. And you don’t need to wear a belt. So you can carry totally concealed no matter what you wear.

If I’m carrying my G43, I have an IWB holster with an extra mag attached. If I’m carrying my G19, I typically don’t carry an extra mag.
