Extra carry ammo concealment
I just wanted to quickly share something I've been doing to keep my extra carry magazine hidden in plain sight. Where I live now it's hot enough to wear a T-shirt on Christmas Eve...which got me thinking that a lot of other people do too and might find this tip useful since summer clothes make concealment difficult.
I used to carry an extra mag in a standard belt-loop magazine pouch. A while back I started carrying them in an extra Leatherman Tool or Gerber knife pouch. Buck knife pouches work too if you prefer a snap closed flap as opposed to velcro.
A Gerber Tool/Leatherman Tool case can hold most hi-cap or 1911 mags. I found a belt-loop case for a sharpening stone that holds a .380 mag perfectly too.
It's very easy to withdraw a mag from these types of pouches and until you do it holds them very secure. They are also plentiful enough that most of us have lots laying around in the truck, boat etc. If you don't own any...they are cheaper than mag pouches anyway.
This trick may not be new to some people but some of ya may of never seen it. If you're reaching for your wallet and snag your shirt up to expose a pocketknife pouch it gets wayyyy less attention than a big double stack stick with a gleaming jacketed hollow point cartridge on top! No one is naive enough to not realize they're looking at a pistol magazine...even if they don't see the rounds. (But another Leatherman... no big deal) Anyway, I find it easier to just have to worry about not flashing one side of my belt than worrying about both sides...thus hide 'em in plain sight.
Hope this is useful to many. If anyone has any tips I'd be glad to hear them.
Happy Holidays to all.
