At the start sorry for the same 2 posts in diffrent categories. Good Evening! I think that this category suits better. I recently had bought a thompson 5 magazine pouch. It seems that it was used for short magazines http://photos02.allegroimg.pl/photos...2/05/728120593 I noticed that USMC used them in Pacific theater and in Europe. Im going to play airsoft with them and I use M43 uniform with suspenders and pistol belt. The only thing that i got to know is: Were the soldiers carrying long magazines in short magazine pouches? Will it be Okay when I'd carry long mags in this configuration? I know that thompson smgs were carried by higher ranked soldiers. I just want to know historical comparsion. Thanks for help.
