Generally those are appendix carry holsters. You’d index the mag with your support hand just as you would if it were in a mag carrier. The only difference is the mag draw stoke from the carrier is more inline with your body as opposed to the side of your body.

For those who carry with a combo rig for their firearm and spare mag, how do you do a tactical reload? Seems like you'd have to switch the firearm into your off hand, reach for your mag with your strong hand. Then fumble to get the mag into your off hand while putting the firearm back into your strong hand. That seems like a bunch of confusion or a lot of time to do all of that. I usually carry a spare mag in my off hand pocket or run a mag holder on my belt on the off hand side.

I'm not saying I'm some know it all, but I just don't see it.
Tactical reload? Do you have to be wearing a plate carrier for a reload to be tactical? What if all you could afford is a pair of 5.11 combat khakis. . does that count?

Most handgun combat instructors advise against combo holsters for the very practical concerns you mention: basically, if you can't get to your spare mag without transferring your gun to your other hand, then you don't have a spare mag.

A different carry weapon for the past couple of months is a G33 -- .357Sig with extensions for the Glock mags (10 + 1) loaded with Hornady Critical Duty 135 grain.

Took the Kimber Ultra Carry loaded with Winchester 230gr PDX1 today. Gotta love cool weather as a coat over a Winthrop OWB and I'm good to go!

Nighthawk Border Special 1911 (.45) or Wilson EDC X9 (9mm) if I can carry full size. Glock 43 if I need to go smaller.

Due strictly to current circumstances, I have changed my EDC from my usual Walther PPS to my Canik TP9SA. It isn't as easily concealable, but if things get sporty I'd rather have 18+1 with two extra mags in my hip pocket (totaling 55rnds) than 7+1 and an extra 8 in my pocket.

Amen! Normally carry a Stacatto-C but as the madness increases I feel much better with the Stacatto-P with 17+1 onboard and 2x20 in reserve!

I dont think its a stretch. I carry a CZ Shadow 2 with a x300 (kinda concealed), spare mag, SF light, ZT folder, and an Esee Izula when off duty.

The only thing I’d change is perhaps pick up a CZ RAMI or carry my Glock 26 if I needed to actually conceal my handgun. I live in Alabama though, open carry is legal and Constitutional Carry is in the pipeline, again.

I mean, I carry the pistol, a mag, and a folder. I skip the light and fixed blade though. By the time I add keys, phone, and wallet I'm out of pocket space. My diabetic ass has my pump and glucometer on all the time too though, so I guess that makes up for the space.

Yeah I’m seeing how I like carrying the Izula in conjunction with a folder. Definitely made short work of 10 pounds of top sirloin steak today for meal prep.

Can’t recommend enough grabbing a small EDC light to carry. If space is an issue, check out Olight’s I3T. I use it attached to a PC for running at night, definitely good brightness for the size.

I have been carrying a 43 the majority of the time since late 2014 when they first came out, I appendix carry with TTi +2 baseplates on the mags. I also have a 45 MOS I carry sometimes in the winter. Once the new 43X and 48 come out with the light rails, I will likely pick up a 48 and slap on a Surefire XC1 and retire the 43 to a go-bag. I like the 19 MOS as well, I might end up replacing the 45 MOS with a 19 MOS later this year and retire the 45 MOS to pair with my 19X that I use in classes. Then I'll have the same gun, one with an optic and one without for classes.

I carry a Springfield XDS in .45 or Ruger LCP. I like the springfield because it doesnt rub on bare skin.
