Post: How Do I Carry Spare Ammo for My Hellcat? Specialized Mag Pouches
Concealed carrying daily requires preparation, planning, and a few compromises. One of those challenges is what size gun you can carry. I know I want to have as many rounds as possible to help ensure victory if I ever find myself in an unavoidable fight for my life.
Sure, my full-size XD-M Elite will hold 22+1 rounds, but it’s big and therefore more tough to carry and keep concealed. So normally I grab my Hellcat instead. It’s small and compact and still can carry 16 rounds with the 15-round magazine and one in the chamber. Still, is 16 rounds enough? Hell, is 23 rounds even enough?

Dan - thanks for taking the time to review the ExtraCarry™ Mag Pouch and your great review
What kind of options do we have for carrying extra magazines with us? I guess we could drop one or two in our pocket? However, would you be able to get that magazine out from your pocket under stress? Let’s not even get into all the lint at the bottom of our pockets. Another option is getting a magazine pouch that goes on your carry belt. I guess that’s not a bad idea, but what if you’re trying to carry concealed? That’s a lot of extra bulk at your waist that might print through a jacket. What if there was another option?
