I've been a fan of Galco products since I discovered them in the early 1980s. I became a Texas Peace Officer in 1981 (I'm still actively employed as such) and have preferred this type of magazine pouch, and the Galco brand in particular, for on and off duty use. I own other brands and have tried them but they all take up too much real estate on my belt and they don't hold the magazines at a level I prefer. This product works for me and the Galco line lasts a long time. I'm still using Galco holsters I bought back in 1982 and 1983, among other Galco holsters purchased after that.
