To set the record straight, yes, new/different/clever designs ALWAYS interest me. When I get an idea in my head and putting it into action is within my capabilities then I have to at least attempt it. Here's my latest idea; a tuckable, "IWB", horizontal spare mag carrier/holster. That's a mouthful! I don't have a catchy name for it yet, maybe "T-mag Carrier" (since it looks like a T). If you think of something that fits give it a shout out.

I have a detailed writeup of it on my blog - hiddendefense.blogspot.com (http://hiddendefense.blogspot.com/)

I also have a short video demonstrating it on youtube - YouTube Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVYAFZVA5ao)

I think as you suggested, "T-mag" is a very good name for it. I'm not so sure it'll work for double stack mags though. Single stack mags are so much easier to carry.

Say hello to the "T-magster"!

My wife came up with the name and I liked it so that's what I'm calling this new magazine carrier. This is a quick post about my latest updates to the design.

As you can see I shortened the "T". After wearing the original style for a day and a half it became uncomfortable because the extra extension would poke me when I sat. I realized that it didn't need to be so long to accommodate the amount of shirt that needed to be tucked in so I went about trimming it and reforming the kydex. You can also see that I improved the retention by dimpling the kydex where the mag catch is. This allows the magazine to click in and out so you know it won't start sliding out on it's own. Another feature that I made to enhance concealment is a slight tilt of the mag towards the body. I found that when the mag was straight up and down in line with the bottom T that it would lean out away from your body when attached to the belt. The slight tilt counteracts that and helps keep the mag close in.

With the refinements it's become an incredibly comfortable way to carry an easily accessible concealed spare magazine without taking up valuable pocket space.

I call this idea a solid success!

Ok, I was asked if this would work for a double stack and then also asked if it could be made with a J-clip attachment instead of velcro so last night I decided to give it a go for one of my double stack S&W mags. Here it is:

And some pics of it being worn. Now you see it...

In my blog I have a video showing how well it conceals and how easy it is to access.

That's nifty! What's pricing going to look like? I have a Kahr MK9 (looks like you have that one already made) and a Glock 29 that I might be interest in purchasing for.
