I agree with coyo...chances are that if you're changing mags, the situation around you is less than silent...

About the velcro too...good quality hook and pile "velcro" is pretty tough stuff...a lot of people have bad ideas of velcro, but their views are based on cheapo chinese/taiwan ripoffs...

The mag pouches would also be secured using quality brass "durasnaps" as the primary means of closure, and the velcro would be used as the secondary means of closure.

Another innovative means for closing mag pouches is what's known as a "Positive tension release" which utilizes a metal hook that is attached to elastic and hooks under a 1" piece of webbing. This system is totally silent, and impervious to dirt etc.

I don't see how the CF's can utilize a 5 mag. ready load? While in theory every shot fired should be an aimed shot at a target, I personally feel that having more rounds that are readily accessible makes me feel more secure...
