Magazine Carrier Suggestions

Hoping you guys can help me out with this one. Figured you've helped with other stuff so what the heck.

I am looking for a double mag carrier that carries in the horizontal position. I prefer black leather with some kind of retention screws. So far all I have found is a Desantis Leather A01 that goes either vertical or horizontal. I can't seem to find any pics or reviews on the horizontal mounting of it.

Thanks as always.

For lack of a good source for what you're looking for, try Ebay!

Looked on eBay. Didn't see much.

Thought if I went horizontal it might be easier to conceal. I have see a few single carriers that seem pretty streamlined to belt. Thoughts on horizontal?

You may have a real problem finding a double horizontal. I can't see it being any easier to conceal, to start with. By the time one considers the width of the two mags and what ever space the maker put between them, the vertical distance is going to be similar to the length of a standard magazine. But, I think the biggest reason a horizontal piece will be scarce is gravity. Why fight it while trying to build a better mouse trap? Most makers are going to allow gravity be the primary source of retention.

I don't think I've ever seen a double horizontal magazine carrier, your best bet may to contact one of the many custom holster makers and see if they could make on for you.

I don't think you'd gain much going horizontal. I would think the pouch would take up as much space in either direction. I have seen some single horizontal pouches that seem to blend into a belt. I have single and double vertical pouches and don't have any concealment problems.

I see I am a little late to the party but that was going to be my question.
The only horizontal dual magazine holders that I have seen are on the shoulder rigs. Which would not be much help to you.
