Magnet.

I just went shooting IPSC and learned something quite smart.

Some of the guys on the range had a magnet mounted on there belt, so if you had to take out your magazine, to do something with your gun you just put it on the belt and the magnet would hold it until you needed it again. This worked very well when you moved and reloaded at the same time, you didn’t loos the magazine.
Of course it would have to be a metal mag.

Dump pouch means you have to fish around inside it to get it back. magnets mean it is always in the same spot, means same motion, means practiceable and thus faster and smoother.

One of my teammates uses magnets to actually hold his mags onto his ACU's

sewing a (strong enough) magnet into all your mag pouches allows you to use them without the flaps or straps which means a considerable increase in reloading speed and allows for really fast reorganizing (putting full mags into your primary mag position), shortening the pouches to leave more magazine exposed means that you can get a better grip around them too, which also helps in better performance during reloads.

but a single magnet on your belt or vest is indeed also very helpful: http://www.cedhk.com/show.php/Object903

Yeah some people get stippling jobs, but which is better?
