Most of us who carry a firearm have many drawers and bins full of different magazine pouches.  It can be annoying when changing platforms to buy magazine pouches, and a lot of universally sized magazine pouches do not have appropriate retention levels for all magazines.  The new “Burrito” magazine pouch from Mean Gene Leather seeks to solve that problem by using springs to contain whatever item one chooses to carry in them.  For those of you familiar with the “TACO” pouch, Gene Higdon founded High Speed Gear and designed the TACO prior to selling the company.  Details of the “Burrito”  Per MGL:

Product Description

 Item will begin shipping on 07/12/2016 |  Pre-Order will end on 07/05/2016, pricing will then increase to regular pricing.

The “Burrito”, an open top pouch will come equipped with Springs that maintain a positive retention to assure the contents remain secured within. Almost every leather magazine pouch produced to date is limited to either a single or a double stacked magazine. The “Burrito” now gives the user to choose a majority of single or double stacked magazines without having to purchase multiple pouches.  The “Burrito” allows you to carry other items such as flashlight and other similar sized items. These pouches have triple stitching on the leather loops to fit 1.5” belts. For 1.75” belt can be ordered upon special request.
*Handmade in the USA.
*Made from US leather.
*Springs made in the US, constructed of Heat Treated 17-4 Stainless steel.
*And more importantly, Made by the person whom Invented and brought you the First Positive Bungee cord retention magazine pouch!

Personally, I’ll be looking to try some of these out, as my EDC mag and multitool pouches are starting to fall apart.  It’d sure be nice to have one pouch to hold most of my different CCW magazines, and I’m also curious to see how these fare in competition use.

    Whats with the buzzfeed type titles recently?

    • Joe Goins

      The sight used to be about journalism. I feel it is now about pushing product.

    • Theo Braunohler

      Maybe you haven’t noticed, but basically half of what is posted here are paid advertisements.

      • PK

        Well, that’s fine with me. I’ve found out about a lot of products I ended up buying through articles here.

        The only real grievance I have is the recent sensationalized/capitalized-word titles. That makes no sense and has me less likely to read articles with such headlines.

      • Pete M

        There are no paid reviews on TFB.

  • Robert Morrison

    The capitalization in your titles is really making this site feel cheap. So many other pieces are professional and this is Facebook-tier.

        Thirded. Who is coming up with the titles? The writers or the editors?

    • TechnoTriticale

      Not nearly as laughable as another site (initials DR) whose article titles are multi-line paragraphs that are exhausting to read, and always end with an! plus (somethingobvious!)

      Meanwhile, does anyone have an IWB mag pouch with a sweat flap, for 1911 9mm, so the floor plate or extension doesn’t dig flesh?

      • Some Guy

        I carry a stealthgear double mag pouch and am quite happy with it.

        • TechnoTriticale

          Bingo. Thanks.

    Pleb, get on my level

    • Jwedel1231

      With that upgrade we never stood a chance.

    • Swarf

      The four that are still closed have doubled up Snickers, yeah?

      You can tell us.

      • CupAJoe

        I now have an extreme desire to oc a banana at work with snickers mag pouches and a nutella jar in the drum pouch.

  • Tim Mumma

    When did this become a Web design critic site? Does capitalizing the title deminish the content?

    Good article!
