A 20 and a 25 round mag in the Taco pouch

A 20 and a 25 round mag in the Taco pouch

anettewearingtaco A few months ago I found an Ammo Burrito. Now I have a Taco Magazine Pouch. I think our gun accessory makers have gone “loco”. Ha ha. Okay, I thought it was funny. Anyway, I had posted on FB a few weeks ago my desperate search for a double stacked 308 magazine pouch for 3 gun. I now am shooting Heavy Metal class with my new Devil Dog Arms AR10. I do not have enough real estate around my waist to wear two single rifle mag pouches along with all of my pistol and shotgun pouches. I needed to double up. My friend Clover of Lantac and Froglube contacted me and said she knew the perfect company. Clover knows everyone in this industry. She put me in touch with William of High Speed Gear and he sent me what he claimed would solve my problem. I received the X2R Taco.

I love the Taco. High Speed Gear caters to the tactical, military and LE crowd. They have an incredible selection of tactical nylon gear all made in the USA. But they have something for my 3 Gun game as well and are starting to promote to that industry. They should. The Taco is super light and retains the magazines through tension. I have used both my 308 and 223 magazines and they fit perfectly. Even if you have only one magazine it still stays in place while running around as we do in 3 Gun. The side panels are made of injection molded polymer. The shell is Cordura with shock cord lacing. This one was mounted on a Kydex belt attachment to go on to my race belt. It does not

normally come with one so either order one from them or you can attach it to one you may already have. But if using these for more tactical purposes it will attach to your pack or flak jacket, etc. I like that the pouch can collapse if no magazines are in it. There is a thin HDPE sheet between the two magazines that keep them from rattling. It tried it with 2 AR 223 mags, one Pmag and one 60 round, and two 308 AR10 mags. It is super light and flexible which means if I do not have any mags in it I hardly notice it. They are now made in 6 color options, black, coyote brown, urban gray, multicam, olive drab green and Kryptek Highlander. Price is $42 on their website.

The only issue I can see, which is not an issue for me or most people, is that to return the mags to the pouch is not a quick slide in like a Kydex one would be. But I am not racing to put mags back in to pouches. I am only racing to grab a mag from the pouch. They are still easy to insert. Even if someone handed me a double stack Kydex rifle mag pouch right now I would turn it away. I really like this thing. Now if they only made it in leopard print.
