by Travis Pike Carrying a spare magazine isn’t tough, but it’s not always easy, especially when it comes to concealed carry.

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?

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?
