You know, that title is going to bring some weird google searches…but I digress. Tam asks if you’ve ever seen someone flash their gear belt at a restaurant. So the question is, have you ever seen someone’s spare mag carrier in a setting other than the range or a match?
Like Tam, I’ll confess to not carrying spare ammo as often as I should – when I’m carrying a full size pistol, I usually am also carrying the famous Jetfire pocket gun instead of a spare mag. If something happens to gun number one (or when it runs out of ammo after six shots) I’m not going to try and fumble a speedloader into it, I’m just going for the pocket rocket as a backup.
To the original question though, I have never in my life seen someone’s ammo carriers in a restaurant, unless they were open carrying, in which case I’ve also seen their pistol as well. The whole “people want to flash their gear at restaurants” line doesn’t really hold water with me, as I’ve been to a lot of restaurants and have yet to see someone expose their bat-belt at the table.
