Ok so I've had the regular nemesis for a couple of years now and I love it. Just picked up the cargo nemesis to keep the gun from moving around too much in a cargo pocket. It seems to work pretty well for that, but the pouch for the extra mag seems way too loose. Every time I sit down the extra mag slides out. I was really surprised by how loose that extra mag pouch is. Anybody else have this problem? Did I get one that just wasn't stitched properly? I suppose I could simply add another line of stitches to make it tighter, but I shouldn't have to! I appreciate any insight or advice.

Contact Nemesis and tell them what the problem you are have with the extra mag not staying put. They just might have an answer for you or they just might replace it for you. Keep us posted on the results.

I do not find mine to be all that loose but being completely honest I don't use it that much.

I did email them this morning. I'll let you know what they have to say.

Don't know if this will help with DeSantis' product but with Remora's holsters and mag carriers you can put an empty pistol or magazine in place then use a hot air gun to gently heat up the material then press form it to a better fit using your fingers and a towel for insulation. A "Chicago" type screw could be used as a tension adjustor as well.

Thanks I'll see what desantis says about that.

You could sew in another line and likely tighten it up some. You may also just trying to put some type of material in the pouch to take up some of the extra space. Poster board, card board, business cards, inner-tube material. More material might make it fit better and not fall out. Inner tube material might make it draw out slower, so just try different stuff to see what works.

I'm not sure which cargo pocket it is carried in, but a deep front pocket or side pocket in cargo pants, would generally make it difficult or near impossible, to get out with a week hand. I've posted here many times, I'm not a fan of having a mag on the holster. Here is my reasoning. I know some feel strongly about having gun and holster together and that is OK. But I'm sticking with my reasoning:

Generally, you carry an extra mag for a reload. Lets assume you have a holster with a mag built in and lets say you are right handed. You draw the gun to fire and you shoot until it is empty. Now you want to reload.

The hand you likely need to get the extra mag has an empty gun in it. So you would need to move the gun to your left hand. Then go get the 2nd mag with the newly freed up right hand. Then you need to reload the gun and likely backwards from what you practice. Meaning your gun is in the left and 2nd mag in the right. Then after you figure out the reload, the gun likely needs to get back into the right hand for shooting. You may be able to reload and shoot left handed and save a step.

Now assume you do this under stress and lots of adrenaline. Maybe you are running, being attacked, or shot at. It may not be a good time to be switching your gun back and forth to each hand. Too many ways to screw that up, drop the gun, or have it knocked away from you.

Having the extra mag on the holster essentially puts an extra mag on your body. However, as explained, it may not be that helpful or useful. I would suggest having an extra mag on the week side for access with a week side hand.

I agree with lws380. Even though it is more convenient (and I am all about convenience :) ) I never found it tactically advantageous to be on the same side as the pistol. Unless of course you already have one on the weak hand side. Now you have a mag you can get to with either hand. Just my opinion.

The main reason I use my cargo nemesis is because it keeps the pistol upright in the draw position in a big pocket. Being completely honest I rarely carry a spare magazine.

Oh. And I like the name gomofast. It reminds me of the time I asked a large black lady at a fabric store if there was such a thing as fabric glue. She gave me a big smile and said, "Sure there is. You need some sewnomo".

Desantis rep told me that it is loose on purpose so that you don't have to tug to get the mag out. I told them that its worse to have the mag slide out when you sit down and than not be where you expect it to be when you need it.

However I think you're all rightvthat its better to carry the spare mag on my weak side anyway. So I'll probably go back to that and just enjoy that the cargo nemesis does a good job of keeping the gun from moving around.

So how about carrying a folding knife in the mag pouch/holster. I'm pretty sure that you could find one that fit. Ya always need a knife, 'cause ya might need ta clean yer finger nails or pick yer teeth.:rofl:
