Magazine carriers

Post by senorgrand »

Looking for recommendations for carrying two or three 30 round glock stick mags on a belt. For a friend...out of state...you wouldn't know him...

Your friend is going to poke his ribs out. That sounds uncomfortable.

I figured there must something that drops below the waist, like a drop-leg holster

If your friend is planning to use them for action shooting, drawing the damned things is going to be a PITA. Probably best to roll with one of the magnetic mag holders- the ones I have are strong enough to even work with polymer glock mags, since they have the metal inserts. But they don't work with Pmags, so not sure how well they'd work with the 33 round Glock mags your friend has. If they are factory Glock funsticks, I think they also have the metal insert, so would be good to go. The aftermarket stuff, not sure.

They may be best left on your friend's nightstand. Properly secured, of course.

Search for H & K MP5 mag pouches, they should fit just fine.

Have you considered HSGI tacos? I have two for standard-capacity TACOs that are pretty nice. I believe they make a version for submachinegun magazines.

I have these with a Tek-Lok belt attachment. A couple for AR15 mags and larger ones for M1A mags.

This is one place in life where having a large waist size provides a perverse advantage.

Thanks all!

I've found the following.

This will hold four mags (which happens to be how many my friend has). I think with some additional D rings for a chest strap would make for a good rig. It kind of has a WWII vibe in Olive.

Image

This is probably the second most versatile. I little too tactical for my friend's taste, but probably very practical.

Image

This is likely West German Army Surplus...bonus Cold War points.

Image

This one is probably the most low-key solution. Very old school.

I carry those on the gun range in a standard open top magazine holder on my gun belt. https://www.amazon.com/CYTAC-Magazine-P ... pons&psc=1

If that doesn't work for you then get a tactical vest and look for a suitable vest MOLLE compatible holder.

Obviously it’s the chest rig.

First, you're going to need some properly fitting pants:
