Flared magazine pouch?

Recommended Posts

I ran into some issues this past weekend shooting the idpa patriot tier 2 match when it came to stowing magazines as part of the course of fire.  I was shooting an officer frame 1911 and had trouble picking up the single stack mags and stowing them in my single stack mag pouch.  Now if I had a well on my mag pouch like I do on my gun things could have been a little easier and faster.  

 

Does anyone know of a company that makes flared single stack magazine pouches?   I know I could get some kydex and make my own but would prefer just to order one instead. 

 

or does anyone stow the mags somewhere else instead of in your mag pouch?

I got my bugle mouth mag pickup and stow pouches from Ready Tactical.  But I shoot with the maker and got them direct, I don't know if his distributors are ordering them.

CPWSA and SKD Tac.

RLN Custom Gear can make them. Just tell him Rowdy sent you.

Methinks a flared mouth mag pouch would be considered as "competition only" and not suitable for everyday use. See Rule 8.6.2.A.  Remember that "stow" does NOT mean that mags picked up off a table or the ground, potentially for use later on in the stage, have to go into a mag pouch.

If your mag pouches are kydex, you can put a bevel on the inside to ease loading and not look like you are using competition equipment for your next IDPA competition.

I may order some kydex. Looking at 8.6.2a it doesn’t seem like a slight bevel would disqualify me as long as it’s nothing crazy.
