I have been testing a product that may answer the age old question. How do you carry a spare magazine for home defense?
Every firearm instructor I've worked with a training video I've watched has stressed the importance of carrying a spare magazine(mag). Not just for reloading but for clearing malfunctions and the handful of other things that could go wrong when the shit hits the fan.
But scenario time. Your at home in bed in your birthday suit or favorite PJs and all of a sudden ISIS kicks in your door or the local scumbag home invader. You grab your gun and go. But what about that spare mag? Is it back in your nightstand. Do you hold it and comprise your grip. Most guys don't sleep in full kits or carry spare mags in their elastic of their boxers.
What if I told you there is a device that can hold a spare mag, knife, flashlight, Tourniquet or your favorite snack for home use. Oh, I forgot to mention it goes on instantly. That's right a snap bracelet for grownups. This is the WristMag by SnapTech.
Its designed with two heavyweight elastic magazine loops that are capable of handling any mag from 9mm to 45acp in single or double stack and most speed loaders for revolvers. The magazines are held securely with nonslip neoprene pads. This isn't the same plastic snapbraclet from the 90's. It is constructed with 10 steel springs. After the snap the velcro secures the wrist mag firmly. Once its snapped to your arm it's not going anywhere till your remove it.
I love how it's not just for mags and it's pretty universal. I keep a spare mag and Tourniquet on mine. The WristMag rests on my nightstand ready to deploy. No more fumbling around in the dark trying to get a mag out of my edc holster in the dark. It's also peace of mind knowing I have a Tourniquet on my person just incase.
Disclaimer this is not for concealed carry or open carry. Its strictly designed with home defense in mind.
If it isn't obvious by now I'll just say it, yes I I recommend this product. Stop waiting just order one. SnapTech is not paying me to say this. It's just that great.
