OK Yall I have a question for you all when setting up your holster + Mags ?
In what direction do you place your magazines ? If rounds forward or primers forward ..
( If for example if you were appendix carrying your pistol for a right hand shooter would you place your magazine with the bullets facing the slide or would you turn it for the primer side of the case to be facing the slide )

Well, IF I were to be carrying appendix (never could get used to that with a 4-4 1/2" barrel) and IF I were to be carrying my mags in the same holster as my gun (which I don't think I would ever do at 4 o'clock, but I can see the logic for appendix), I would certainly carry the mag with the hollowpoint toward the gun, primers away. It's more natural for me to reach for that mag in that place with my little finger AWAY from my body, putting my thumb on the primer side (of course).
But that location feels like two separate moves to me - up/left, then up. Coming from 9 o'clock (primers back) feels more like a single smooth motion, although I have to rotate my wrist.
What's everybody else think...?
