The Mad Duo
Richard Kilgore and Jake Call enjoy something of a celebrity status among action figures and 1/1 scale trigger-pullers alike. They are world renowned for their wit, objectivity, keen tactical insight and utter lack of exaggeration or hyperbole. They leverage tens of thousands of hours of training and operational experience to the betterment of all mankind (and shooters). When not saving helpless school children from terrorists, rescuing damsels in distress and removing insurgents from the gene pool, they write, blog and support single dancing moms one dollar bill at a time. This provides much needed wisdom and perspective to the vast community of trigger-pullers that so desperately hungers for it.

8 Comments on "Regulation Tactical: Reflex Mag Pouch"

  1. Nice!

  2. Still take my old ALICE mag pouch.

  3. Okay, that is a well thought out piece of gear.

  4. how many mags will it holded?

  5. Why would you want to place empty or partially depleted magazines back in the same place you reach for full magazines?

    Why would I fumble around with an empty magazine at all if I am in a fight for my life?

    Why would I try to put a magazine into a small, tight hole while under stress, versus dropping it into a large hole (dump pouch) or on the ground to pick up later? What is more important: getting my rifle firing again to keep me alive or fumbling with an empty, expendable magazine?

    Interesting idea on an age old concept, unfortunately it doesn't address the priorities inherent in a magazine change. Emty magazine retention is the least of my priorities when my rifle stops firing in a fight.

  7. well we would find plent of M-16 mags in taliban hands. the loved taking american weapons from the afghan army.one less mag dropped on the ground the better. the part about fumbling around boils down to training your muscle memory and conducting rifle drills as often as possible. its a neat piece of kit but i would still keep my dump pouch for just in case stuff.

  8. If you drop your magazine on the ground, you'll never find it again because combat is movement. If you're stationary too long you'll be shot; you always fire & move.

    'Empty Magazine Retention' should be on your mind; the magazine is part of the weapon and what happens to you when you reach the point when your magazines are nearly empty and you need to refill them? That's why we carry 150-round bandoliers with sufficient 10-rd clips to top up 5 magazines. Whether it's a moment to get into some quick cover and top up your mags; or a full reorg to fill them all ready for the next bound, you will be filling mags on the hop.

    Dump pouches are ok, but they rattle and can cause damage to the magazine lips, which means stoppages. I like this pouch idea; he's obviously had a think about a common problem.
