thanks for all the great info guys!!!
got plenty of budget mag carrying ideas now
1st i think ill go check out the local k-w surplus again and the abc military store downtown, and ill jsut bring a mag with me and see if they have any cheap pouches that a couple mags will fit into.
ive got 6 metal lo caps and 1 metal hi cap, not sure if ill be using the hi cap or not though...mite carry it around as a just incase i run outta ammo, lol
if i cant find anything i mite give the duct tape idea a try
and lastly if all else fails ill probably just order the pouches off armyissue
