    I used to regularly carry a spare mag, now I usually only carry a spare in the winter when I've got to wear a bunch of bulky clothes anyway it's easy to throw in a spare mag. When I carried in warmer temps I just wore it on my weak side. When I first started carrying (20years ago) the butt packs were still socially acceptable to wear so I could carry a spare in that.

    I have a Kytex gear mag carrier for my M&P9C that I carry on my weak side(highly recommended). I have a MT Holsters mag carrier for my M&P Shield .40, but I don't like it so I've just been tucking the magazine into my back pocket next to my wallet. Not ideal, but it works until I can get a better carrier for it. I've also carried my spare in a Maxped Fatboy or a jacket pocket before.

    I'm using a DeSantis IWB, stealth pro model, (maybe pro stealth?)
    extra mag fits in front on the holster
    Its comfortable, and around $30, i think.
    awkward to change mags though, takes some practice to stay on target.
    I noticed after I took the pics that the talon "granulate" grip is eating it up too :/

    Depends on the gun. When I carry a .380 I drop a spare mag in the front left pocket. It's small and hardly noticeable. When I carry a Glock 26, I either don't carry a spare mag, carry one in the car but not on me, or if it's winter then in my left jacket pocket. Most often I carry a revolver so it doesn't really apply.

    I drop a couple of spare mags in a side pocket. Cargo pants are great.

    I carry one spare Glock 19 mag in a S.H.T.F. mag carrier. I want to get a Dale Fricke horizontal carrier though.

    I just carry too much stuff in my pockets to drop a spare mag into the pocket. It would take me to long to get to it. I also carry Vise grips in my weak side back pocket so that is out as well..... the hunt for a mag carrier continues.

    What kind of holster do you use? Maybe get a custom one that holds a mag.

    Carry it weakside and it will help balance out the weight of the firearm.

    You didn't really specify how or what you carry. When I am carrying my M&P shield I carry AIWB in a GCode Incog Holster with its Mag Pouch.

    If it is my Sig P229 or P226 I carry an extra mag weak side 10:00-11:00 position. I generally use a Bravo Concealment Mag Pouch when I carry those guns.
