His lady made it happen – Part Three

Posted by Rob Longenecker on December 29th, 2006

Don’s Tucker Gunleather rig review continues – all because his lady made it happen.

“OK, suffice to say, the build quality of this rig… has no equal.

Now for the fun stuff!

THE MAG POUCH CONTROVERSY:

“Double angled” mag pouch?  Man, did I ever think this was… not only WEIRD, but completely contrary to everything I thought about mag changes.  What a dummy!  As it turns out, both Tucker and Longenecker are VERY experienced and lauded competition shooters. 

Together, they came up with the whacky idea that angling their mags rearward; kept the wrist from breaking and enabled them to make a clean, circular sweep, from gun, to mag, to gun, without breaking the wrist… which costs you time.  The boys were really on to something here. 

For weeks prior to receiving my rig, I played with my Fobus Roto mag pouch, canting it rearward.  Yanno what?  Those crazy kids NAILED IT!  Rearward cant really IS more natural and faster.  Who knew?

The mag pouches are of the same quality and build as the holster.  The backing is softer, so as to enable the user to fully benefit from the dual tension screws.  You can customize the pouch to literally ANY friction coefficient you prefer.  They lay amazingly flat against the body, making it virtually impossible to print on your left side.” 

In his next post, Don will detail his thoughts about his HF1 holster.
