    That being said, where else do you carry rifle mags?

    You can get cummerbunds with either molle or, like the one I have has 3 pockets down each side for mags or whatever you want to stick in them.


    Edit to add pic. Here I have 3 on the front and could do another 3 diwn each side. Although I think the rear most ones would be a little hard to reach...

    This set up is new to me, so I'm still wirking on how I want everything laid out.

    Carry a mag or two on the belt as well. Good way to distribute the load too.

    And as soon as one of those are moved to the gun itís back filled by one from the PC or chest rig when you have the opportunity.

    I can't remember who it was off the top of my head, but somewhere on the internet someone did a test of this. Long story short, they might not be as dead as you think.
    Considering in the 'dudes who do this for a living" community I don't see a concerted drive to get away from front mounted mags (except for the Brits, and that was for IED issues), I'm guessing it's less of an issue than other things...

    That crossed my mind after I asked the question, on people who get paid to carry guns. I know itís not something Iíd seen talked about, and was curious if itís a non starter or not. So thank you for your answer

    I knew a member of the 75th that claimed to have taken a russian 30 cal through a mag and into his ESAPI while doing a raid. He said he just pulled the mag out of the pouch and dumped it; so that he wouldn't grab it later in the fire fight.

    It's still worthwhile to front mount magazines if that what your into even if they can take a round. I have seen a trend in people wearing slick front plates; but it is not for this reason. The main reason they (I) do this is because of vehicle work, and getting prone/moving around cover is a lot easier without mags infront of you. I carry 4 mags in my CB. Two on each side. Then one mag on my belt and one in the gun for a total of 6 mags with a completely slick front.
