    Mag carrier

    If any of you guys use the PP(K) for CCW, what do you carry spare magazines in? I normally use a Belly Band for my PPK/S and it has mag holders on the opposite side of the holster part. I am wanting to get a nice little leather IWB rig from Galco for the gun, but now I don't know what to do with the spare magazine. What do you guys use for both gun and spare mags?

    I carry my pistol IWB, but use a Galco OWB single mag pouch on the offside. http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterA3.asp...&CaliberID=239

    I use a cell phone case for my G26 mag. Carries horizontally, which makes it more comfortable when I am sitting....

    Wow, it is nice, but it costs $10 more than the holster I am wanting to get. Oh well, I cac't put a price on the safety of my family and my life.

    Check the local Wally World. I use a camera case to keep my Laserlyte from damage. I noted that they had other cases that might work for magazines, and not appear to be mag cases. Kinda light duty though.
    I'll probably end up using a nylon mag holder because they can be washed when they get dirty.

    Drummin Man is right - a knife or multitool sheath can work as an inexpensive mag carrier until you have more funds available. Spend the money on a good holster first. The chances of needing a fast reload are pretty slim.

    I bought the Galco Wasteband inside the pants for the PPK/S http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/71294-5902-1184.html last night, looks nice, I am actually gonna look today for some leather at a craft store and make my own mag pouch, I have a metal clip from an old cell phone pouch that will work well for it. It shouldn't be too hard for me to make one.

    Leather pouch

    Making your own mag carrier(s) while at sea is a good way to spend some of your off-watch time when not studying for you rating promotion.
    When I was in the Navy, back in the ancient days (1965-69), many of us crafted our own knife carriers. Of course they were for outside the pants, but I made a couple of different types.
