    I go as flat as possible on the front of work armor as I can without losing my ability to perform the necessary task list.
    That usually means single-depth mags on the front of armor.
    I still maintain that general rule for armor integration of support equipment, but I'll allow a little extra depth since I no longer use a soft backer and my plates are thinner, but it's still pretty thin.
    That said, I still avoid double mag depth, whether 2 rifle or rifle and pistol on the front. Just generally uncomfortable for real world wide-spectrum use.

    As accurate as needed, as fast as possible, as many times as it takes.

In an actual scenario Iíd obviously prioritize pistol mags or medical stuff more, but I do have a belt setup that would come out with most of that already set.
    What is "cat crap"?
