No side-by-side magazine couplers allowed. Magazines must be carried on the belt or in apparel pockets. See rule 5.2.4. No restriction on location on the belt. No thigh rigs or tie down magazine holders. End-to-end coupling/extension is allowed.

Just to stir the pot, what exactly does "side-by-side" mean?

 

Is this mag coupled setup "side-by-side"?

And if so, how long until someone comes up with a coupler that puts the mags in this orientation? Definitely not "side-by-side".

TBH I would welcome people doing that...I guarantee it is slower than reloading from a front "open shooter first mag position" mag pouch.

People seem caught up in the semantics, but it seems pretty simple.  If you couple (or splice) two mags together such that they become one mag and feed as such, you're good.  If you couple two mags together such that they function as two different mags, each feeding from their respective feed lips, then you're not.
