Galco updated their PMC Pocket Magazine Carriers at SHOT this year, giving concealed carriers a better option than just dropping a spare mag in a pocket to flop around. As they tout . . .
Improved for 2018, Galco’s Pocket Magazine Carrier now features vertical magazine orientation, an adjustable tension unit and twin fore-and-aft “hooks” to retain the unit in the pocket as the magazine is withdrawn.
That’s a good thing if prefer pocket carry. . But there are plenty of ways to tote a spare. There’s the ever-popular OWB option, that’s comfortable and easy to access. If you want something more stealthy, there are plenty of inside the waistband options out there. As yet another pocketable choice, there are a few clip-designs that let you carry a magazine like a pocket knife.
And for our part, we’re fans of 5.11’s Defender Flex pants that give you a hip pocket that’s perfect for toting a spare.
No matter where or how you choose to carry your backup reload, the most important thing is to carry one. As the old cliche advises, no one ever came away from a defensive gun use situation wondering whey they bothered to have an extra magazine on hand.
So assuming that you do, in fact, carry an extra mag, how and where do you pack it?
