I absolutely always carry a spare mag, but usually a spare j-frame i mean it is your life whats a little extra weight?
I have been involved in a bank robbery with an officer killed and a bad guy wounded in the arm, I admit I was armed with a 1911 General Officers 45, I had a split second decision to make, shoot it out or get the heck out of Dodge which I did, there was an exit I knew I could get out of and I did, no regrets. No one ever knew I was armed. I removed myself from the fight and I am very glad of it.
When it really happens you never know what you will do.
I really need to carry an extra mag, as I usualy don't have one. when I do its usually in the glove box, though keep in mind on the occasion I actually have a mag in my pocket its in a pocket of its own that I have cleaned out. And yeah I usually do a few quick grabs at that mag but this whole scenario is rare... a lot rare then it should be I guess.Question for all of you who carry spare mags in your pockets (Actually, a few questions)
Do you practice reloading from your pocket?
If so, how often?
If not, what the hell's wrong with you? (That's only slightly in jest)
Do you carry your mag in the same pocket with your change?
Ever see a dime get jammed in the feed lip of a magazine?
I know there are pocket mag pouches out there and times when you can't carry a mag on your belt. A pouch in a pocket is always going to be better that just a pocket, in my opinion. Just wanted to get some of you thinking about that if you haven't already.
