To address a couple of concerns some have raised:
EXPOSED ROUNDS: Considering I work in one of the most uptight places in the State, not one person has stated a word about the exposed rounds being intimidating. I Never lost any rounds while wearing on duty or while training.
LOSING MAGS IN A FIGHT: Although I have been in only one hand to hand confrontation wearing it, I have worn it for countless hours during training and on duty. I have never had to reset the mag in the holder or anything like that. I have ran the yearly PT Test with the duel fire system and never lost the mags. This included scaling cinder block walls, chain link fences, belly crawling through water pipes with all gear. The only thing that happened was the mag holder got scratched during the belly crawl.
PERSONAL THOUGHTS: Ok, it is no secret that I am not a fan of Glocks. However, I was impressed with the idea behind Duel Fire enough to have one issued at work just so I could try it out. In my first run with it at the range, it took about 5 minutes to get the motion down and the position of the mags being sideways stuck in my head. Once I did this, I was smoking fast during reload drills. I had a student time me with a shot timer at the range. I ran a 7 yard reload drill consisting of firing 2 and 2. My time from holster to last shot was 1.66 seconds. My slowest time was 1.84 seconds.
I really like the design. I tried and couldn't make it malfunction by losing a mag, stripping a round on anything I came in contact with. The only thing I was able to do to it was scratch it during PT. This was fixed by taking a piece of 2000 grit sand paper and lightly scuffing out the scratches. Then I buffed out the plastic and you couldn't tell anything had happened.
I did run into the springs getting sticky while laying in the prone on the live fire portion of the yearly SWAT quals. However, I attribute this to the extreme amount of sandy terrain around the range (APD TAC Range) . I was able to get sand in my mags wearing nylon mag holders , so this was no surprise. All I had to do to to loosen up the grittiness was slap the system a couple times with my hand. When I got home, I sprayed it out with gun scrubber and it felt fine.
When I first saw this system, I was impressed with the design but didn't like the idea of wearing mags sideways. After actually wearing them that way, I don't think it's a bad way to carry at all. I am just one of those old farts who doesn't like change.
I would like to see a model for 1911 magazines. I understand there are very few of us dinosaur gun carrying cops these days, but I would definitely carry this system with my 1911. I can only imagine how fast my reloads would be with a gun I truly like and am used to carrying.

I've been a Game Warden in New Mexico for 9 1/2 years and I work hard
and get dirty on a regular basis. I started wearing the Duel Fire
Magazine Delivery System in August of 2007 and I love it. Here's what
it's done for me:
Prior to wearing the Duel Fire, I qualified with my duty pistol with an average score of 86. Within 2-3 weeks of wearing the Duel Fire and practicing my draw and reloads with it every day, I was able to improve my next pistol qualification score to a 92 out of 100 possible points. Here's what it helped me do....not many of us practice drawing and dry fire much at all. In becoming proficient with the Duel Fire, believing it would improve my reload times and reduce my movements, I ironed out some of the kinks in my draw and trigger press. That helped me concentrate on sight picture and sight alignment and during the last spring quals....I scored a 96.
Also, prior to the Duel Fire, I used to use the open top, vertical, leather mag pouches. During my back country patrols on horse back I would regularly lose a magazine from the pouch. One day, while on horse back, I noticed that one of my magazines was missing. I doubled back for it and couldn't find it over about a mile stretch of trail. Luckily, the tourists in my country are good folks. One of them found my magazine on the trail, picked it up and left it on my windshield at the parking lot near the trail head. Since wearing the Duel Fire, I have been on many horseback trips and have not lost a magazine once.
The Duel Fire is a great tool and I recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their skills, their scores and their confidence. Don't go 10-8 without it!

I have been using the Duel Fire floor plates for my Glock 22 for 6
months. I have given them to several of my fellow firearms instructors
with the mission of breaking them or finding the weakness in the design.
To date none have found a weakness or flaw. Should an empty magazine
not drop freely from the magazine well, the little finger can hook
floorplate and rip it free. During injured Officer training drills, you
must clear a feedway malfunction using just one hand, the ability to
hook the floorplate on your gear and rip it out is great.
