    I remember a time, just after Art Of The Tactical Carbine came out, everyone was scrambling to get their hands on a Redimag. Now I wouldnít even know where to find one

    Rifle mags are large and heavy enough that a spare on the gun will be clumsy.

    For a grab-and-go in a vehicle, a compact "active shooter" bag or a simple battle belt with 2-3 rifle mags are decent options.

    While I agree it's not necessarily the norm, most individuals who seek out forums are looking for a deeper level of understanding on the subject. To that end, someone who is planning for an event where they intend to rely on a carbine should treat it as a weapons system.

    The chest rig with spare mags, medical and other necessities should be a cohesive unit and travel everywhere the firearm does. Seems like this thought process is starting to become more commonplace but should certainly be encouraged.

    Sometimes members who have joined fairly recently are spot on.

    Just to clarify, my truck rifle is the only rifle I keep a redi-mag on. I don’t use it on other rifles because it adds weight and bulk.

    With my other rifles I feel that the preparations I made “around them” increase the probability that I will have the space to grab extra supplies. With the truck gun, I assessed that the probability of having that space is lower. Hence, I use a redi-mag to fill that gap.

    I don’t think that the redi-mag is very good for general use, but given certain conditions, it has a place.

    When the rifle's at home, it sits ready with two mags taped together. Being a lefty, the redi-mag doesn't exactly fit my needs from an ergonomic perspective. But I find having 60 rounds on board a whole lot more appealing than just 30.

    I have the Israeli coupler and a Pmag Mag clamp deal. Both are horribly bulky and heavy. The Israeli a little less bulky though. I keep the pmag deal in my truck, but neither is in a gun full time.

    I have several ETS AR mags that couple together.
    They SEEM to be very secure to each other, not had any issues with their mags, AR or pistol.
    But after using them snapped together several times- I just thought it to be too heavy, bulky and just cumbersome.

    When I took an AR training class we put spare magazines in our pockets. It was fairly hot for a chest rig even though I believe everyone had a chest rig. It was pretty interesting when you had other person load your magazine and randomly put dummy rounds in as well so never knew when you going hit dummy round.

    If I knew I had to defend against shit bags like Kyle did, I would definitely take the weight/bulk hit and have that extra mag. But for general home D, I single mag it.
