Worth Staying Tuned for ….the New SLMC!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on November 18th, 2008

Imagine, just reaching down to your belt for a loaded magazine and finding one after the other, in the same place, at the same height and same angle each time –

up to seven times for single stack mags and four times for double-stack magazines. Yes, it holds up to seven single-stack mags and up to 4 double stacks.

Introducing the incredible belt-mounted SLMC!   *It’s a magazine for magazines! *   

What’s the SLMC? It’s the Spring Loaded Magazine Carrier – And Tucker has it ready to ship.

Is it for IDPA? Subject to interpretation.

Is it for IPSC? Yes.

Is it for any other time you want to carry up to a 50-round box of ammo on your hip in loaded magazines in a compact, convenient/fast dispenser? Yes.

Does it work? Flawlessly, man, flawlessly.

The SLMC comes with Belt Slide w/Stabilizer or can be worn with optional mounts (MOLLE Plate, Duty Belt Mount, etc.)

Yes, it accommodates bumper pads. No problem.

More pictures Next POST!

 

Caution!!! If you fully understand what the SLMC will do, You WILL want one!

If that worries you, close your eyes right now!

(The SLMC is manufactured for Tucker by Garrett Industries.)

    It’s a magazine… for magazines!

    That, my friend, is the coolest thing since night baseball.

    Congratulations!

    Regarding IDPA suitability:

    1. IDPA Magazine Carrier Criteria
    Magazine carrier must:
    A. Be designed for concealed carry and suitable for all day
    continuous wear.
    B. Be worn on a standard belt of no more than 1 ¾” width that
    must pass through the belt loops on the shooter’s pants.
    C. Hold the magazine with enough tension to allow it to be
    turned upside down and retain a fully loaded magazine.
    D. Cover 2” of the magazine as measured from the top of the
    cartridge rim down the back flat of the magazine tube.
    E. Cover the entire front face of the portion of the magazine
    inside the carrier. The front face is defined as the side of the
    tube away from the shooter’s body.
    F. Hold the magazine within 10 degrees of vertical (80-100° to
    the ground) position on the belt, no substantial forward or rear
    cant.
    G. Be worn in a belt location that will position the front edge of
    the carrier behind the centerline of the body.

    And:

    4. The shooter may
    carry no more than two spare magazines on the belt.

    It looks to me that the only limitation for IDPA would be that you could only have 2 magazines in it. I still think it would be advantageous that both your mags would be in the exact same place!

    Most reloading I do is with my left hand. Holster is on my right side. Mag release is pressed with the right thumb while the left hand is retrieving the new magazine from my left side. In this scenario, is the “Left Hand” or “Right Hand” model more appropriate?

    A.)
    You would wear the SLMC on your left side and order a left handed model.
