Default Extra mags for CCW

For those of you that carry a spare mag or two for CCW, where do you carry it/them?

I bought an IWB mag carrier from Supertuck but it's just not comfortable for me to wear both the holster and mag carrier IWB.

Btw, if anyone wants to trade for a Supertuck mag carrier (Glock 9mm or .40), pm me.

I carry in an accessory pocket that so many pants have today OR a pocket knife pouch. Have one that mounts sideways or up and down.

I try to counter the "tell" of my handgun with the mags on the other side.

Then, instead of having a medical condition on one side, I have it on both.

I use a cell phone case. You should have seen the look on the clerk's face when I walked into Radio Shack and pulled out an empty magazine and told him I needed a case to fit it. He asked me if it was loaded, so I told him not to worry, the safety was on.

That's a really good idea.

For my smaller semi-autos, I use a nylon knife belt holster.

Something like those use for swiss army knives.

I carry an extra mag in my front left pocket, as I am right-handed.

I just wear it on my belt weak side. Then cover it with my shirt.

I have a DeSantis "Tuck This" IWB holster for my G-20 that holds a spare mag. 31 rounds of 10mm should be enough to either stop the fight or get me the hell out of Dodge.
