One of the big benefits of the Glock platform is its aftermarket is massive, and part of that aftermarket is an exceptionally large amount of magazines. This includes extended magazines from 31, 33. Even 50 round drums exist. When it comes to capacity and handguns, one of the best reasons to choose a 9mm is the amount of ammunition you can hold. I like to think of each and every round of ammo as an option. I like my options, and a multitude of options is better than just a few options. Trying to carry a Glock with a massive magazine extending from the bottom of your gun makes concealment difficult.
Warlord Applications is a small, one man holster and accessory making shop that is quite willing to do things differently. Jason at Warlord Applications is a Marine Corps infantry veteran and he’s creative with his kydex wielding. While he makes your standard OWB and IWB holsters he’s more than willing to try and do things a little different to satisfy his customers.
Remember what I said above? I like my options and I already placed an order for a dual magazine pouch and light-bearing Glock 17 holster when it struck me that I could really use a means to carry an extended magazine in a covert manner. After talking with Jason we came up with the Party Pouch.
Is That A Magazine In Your Pocket?
A big long stick is hard to conceal in most ways, but IWB seemed to be the easy way to conceal a near foot long magazine. I gave Jason an idea of what I wanted and he went to town with it. The Party Pouch was born and it’s a simple design. It’s all kydex with a single clip design. It’s small and lithe and can be worn in a traditional side style or an appendix position.
The pouch goes roughly halfway up the magazine and keeps it secure. In shorter pouches, the heavier and higher capacity magazines can jostle and fall out. The Party Pouch keeps the magazine secure by being much longer than the standard mag pouch. Retention is passive and decently tight, plus the IWB configuration ensures it stays put.
Since the Party Pouch drops so low below the waist it’s not any higher than a standard 17 round magazine in an OWB pouch. The magazine offers plenty of room to grab the magazine and spring it into action.
The Party Pouch and Comfort
I’m wearing it now and while I’m aware of it I don’t feel any discomfort from it. I’ve carried both a KCI and an ETS extended Glock magazine and both feel comfortable for daily carry. I prefer a traditional offside carry versus appendix with both holsters and this magazine pouch.
Do I really have a need for a Party Pouch and a 30 round magazine for concealed carry? Probably not, but in another life, I was a machine gunner and to me, more ammo is always better than less ammo.
