    Default Need to carry more mags

    Well, like those bold letters say, I need to carry more mags. I always have one in my car but I got to thinking about wtf I would do if i empty my magazine and I'm not close to my car. I live on a very small budget because I get shitty pay haha, so I can't go out and buy a mag pouch. I've tried to carry it in my pocket but a 18rd double stack mag is not exactly small. Any suggestions? Or ultra cheap mag pouches you know of haha. Thanks.

    Do you have any folding knife sheaths that will fit a mag?

    I have one for my buck knife which is too small. If I force it in it'll fit but is hard to remove. But that is a good idea that I will be able to work with. Thanks.

    Don’t know where you live but Rural King here has a bunch of nylon holsters and mag pouches on clearance for between $2-$3.50. If there is a store close by, a phone call to the gun counter might be worth it. I bought a small IWB holster for my RM380 for $3

    Do you have a second gun?

    Does it have its own holster?
    You can carry a backup gun, like I do.

    We all know about the crap pay years.
    It just takes a little longer to save up for quality equipment.
    Just put a few dollars away each week until you can afford a proper mag pouch, you will be glad you did.

    Or if you believe the liberals, the world will be coming to an end in about 10 years, so just put it all on plastic and do not worry about paying it off!

    The folding knife sheath or various pouches made of nylon or leather are pretty easy to find and cheap.

    I was reading your post (yeah I do that) and wondering how many rounds you feel like you need. If your spare mag is 18 rounds I assume the mag in the gun is the same; total 36 rounds with one spare mag...you planning for a running street battle? Of course, you can and should carry what makes you comfortable. Your post suggested spare mags (multiple) so...that could become quite a lot of ammo. I was also wondering, how can you afford practice with your EDC if you cannot afford a mag pouch...but obviously I should stop reading. Hope you find a pouch that will work for you.

    How many rounds do you need to defend your life? Most gun incidents are 3 rounds or less. No bad guy is going to stick around when to defensive gun is drawn. Most encounters don’t even go beyond the gun being drawn. You go around carrying to many magazines and the prosecutor is going say you were looking for a gun fight. It has been argued that hand loads were used to be more deadly and show a intent to do more harm. Personally I wouldn’t carry more than the mag or cylinder holds.

    If I need more than one spare mag I need to get out of dodge fast.
    Probably will never use the spare but it makes me feel better.
