    I have several singles (Tucker, Sparks, CC holsters, etc..) the Tuckers carry closer to the body, the Sparks are the nicest and Carl's (CC Holsters) has a full length shield that I like for driving and siting. All my Tucker stuff is belt loop, so they naturally hold in a little tighter I think.. I like the build quality and design of the Sparks, but it needs a shield.. Ron

    I'm using a Crossbreed IWB. It's fairly comfortable and conceals very well.

    I'll give a +1 to the Raven pouches. The IWB clips work great for easy on/easy off and hold nice and tight. They are all I use for my 1911 mags and double stack P30 mags.

    Although I don't carry a 1911, for me, concealment and comfort are both big deals.

    Unless I'm out to dinner or going to some other kind of event where I must "dress like an adult," I'm usually in an untucked T-shirt, and I prefer to have leather against my own exposed skin.

    The XDm's magazine is large and bulky - especially when I use the full-size magazine grip extension with my Compact - but I carry it really comfortably in a Comp-Tac MTAC IWB magazine pouch. The extra leather over the top makes all the difference.

    Sure, it's not a speed rig, but the need to reload (on a pistol that's already 13+1) isn't my true priority for carrying the spare mag: it's more the fear of malfunctions...and for that, I'd either already be bleeding out on the ground, or else should have high-tail'ed it to some kind of cover to work the problem.

    Certainly, any day where I'd have to draw my concealed handgun would be a bad, bad day...but the day that I'd actually need the ammo count of my spare mag? that's probably going to be the Zombie Apocalypse - so I bias it towards concealment and comfort.

    I use a leather double pouch from El Paso Saddlery Co. I originally got it from Cheaper Than Dirt (one of the only good deals from them) and liked it so much I bought a second one from them. I don't see it on their website now but if you find one, I would definatly give it a try. Holds the mag very tight to the body and the tension for how hard they are to remove is adjustable.

    This was the CTD link to the pouch. Original price was under $20: http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/LEG533-1.html

    Normal price directly from the manufacture is $36: http://www.epsaddlery.com/c-59-automatic.aspx

    You can see the pouch in the upper left of this picture which I've posted all too much. I need to take a new one.

    Bianchi IWB for me... but I replaced the metal clip with a belt-keeper. Those metal clips will eat holes in your shirts!

    ^ That's a great tip - I hadn't even thought about that, as none of my carry rigs now have a metal clip....

    My T-shirts all have holes on the sides from my pocket knives and flashlights. :lol:

    I carried a Sparks IWB double but honestly unless it was positioned perfectly it was not comfortable

    Yep.. We like-um... My friend Carl Collins (CCHOLSTERS) is going out of business and he told me that he had numerous single stack mag carriers still in inventory. He also has a few Holsters left. Chechen is website CCHOLSTERS.com and look at the announcements page..Ron

    TTGunleather mag holsters. The matching single and double are IWB and the sweat/rub guard works very well. The dual OWB has sharkskin for wear protection. All fit well, but I find that the double mag holster has a better feel for me when using my IWB for my EMP... kinda like a matching footprint or back belt, pressure seems more evenly spread.

    I used to make a more intricate mag carrier but found that most of my clients wanted something much smaller for pocket carry. I came up with a simple fix and have been going this route since.

    I've tried several different mag pouches. All of them are functional, but the most comfortable for me is the Milt Sparks D-4C double pouch with snap loops. It rides high, so the bottom of the mags don't dig into my hips; the snap loops hold the pouch slightly away from my waistline, so I don't need a sweat shield and can easily grasp the mag for loading.

    I've also found that a double mag pouch carried on the opposite side of a holster actually increases the comfort of the entire rig. My most comfortable rig for a 5" 1911 is an IWB holster at 8 o'clock (I'm left handed) plus the OWB D-4C at 4 o'clock.
