    I saw this, and in a way, it kind of made me chuckle. but then when you think about it, it is pretty baddass.

    Excessive? or just really well prepared? YOU DECIDE!

    If the Mags were for the only weapon I had available to me and I WAS IN IRAQ it would be well prepared but other than that....:rolleyes:

    It would b fun to have at the range but it would kinda be a waste other wise.
    It would also suck reloading them.
    There that is my to cents.

    I don't know.. lol

    ...

    Hmmm, seems that with the heavy load on that side, one would need to have 2-3 guns on the other side to even out the look, otherwise, right-side heavy-tilt painting may be in effect.. :what:

    I think its a bit much, it would be awkward to wear. Hate to say it, but also I think its outright excessive, and its probably going to make even some of the more openminded people question rather you put on a tinfoil hat when watching TV

    Wow....If you need that many mags for a handgun, you should probably be carrying a rifle or subgun. :neener:

    My idea for comfortable shoulder carry has always been to balance the load. With a steel framed 1911, that would mean a bunch of mags. However, this isn't a bunch of mags, its a BUNCH of mags. I think that this would reverse the situation, making you unbalanced to the other side.

    BTW, I've seen those pics before, but I can't remember the site. I've looked for it a couple of times since, but no dice. Any chance I could get a link?

    "Monarch Options" under shoulder rigs, and the one I posted was urban firepower IIRC.

    Wow, looks like another A-Team episode :scrutiny: I'm not sure if that's tactical or practical :confused: I'm curious the true context of that pic

    Well, if Hollywood were ever to make a movie that depicted correct firearms use (i.e., no endless ammo without reload scenes), this is what a mag holster would look like.

    Probably not super practical, but we have all heard the old adage, "an unloaded gun is useless, unless you can throw it 850 fps".

    I would add to that, a gun is only as useful as the number of loaded magazines you have ready to feed it, so it can do its job.

    I started out with just a few magazines, but I continually add to my collection because you never know when you'll need them. The more the merrier and the better prepared you'll be.

    i like that second one. a shotty + 1911 would be alright. but you'd have to lose a few shells and add some mag holders.

    If you had a pistol + carbine using the same magazines (like a beretta storm + pistol), I could see the logic in it.

    Heck the stroud 10 pack (that is what it is called) is only $165. I might just buy two, to balance the load for my next trip to pick up a six pack at the grocery. :)

    Everyone has the right to be a little strange. Lets not for get the revolver guys who might feel the need to have a lot of ammo available.

    I guess you'll never need one of them as long as you skip the Godfathers daughter's wedding reception?
    When would you anticipate that intense/prolonged a pistol engagement, and under what circumstances would you live to use carry+ ten magazines? Zombies storming the bunker?

    You couldn't even use all of them on Zombies. Your pistol would overheat and jam way before you shot off all those Mags in succession. :p

    Those are some neat ideas for extra magazines.
    I often use my empty shot shell waist bag for pistol magazines when I am making noise at the range.
