Im curious what ways you guys reload your longbow magazines. I think carrying around an extra magazine would be too bulky. Has anyone used 10 round tubes to reload their magazine?

If they are anything like most other springfeeds, you can probably cut a hole at the non-gun end, compress the spring and pour paint in. That would probably drop your ball capacity by1 or 2, but it would be easier to reload.

SpecOps, used to (or still does, I'm not sure) carry a leg pouch that carried two Longbow magazines. It seemed pretty out-of-the-way to me, but I haven't used it.

I haven't done it, but it would be simple. Pull the magazine, lock the spring back. Then push the ball latch and dump 2 10-rounds in.

This seems like a 2 handed operation that would leave you pretty well open and defenseless.

one hand one toe operation.
lol.

Anyways one thing that I saw which was pretty darn cool was that the guy reversed the longbow paintball hole thingy ( that place to put the mag.)
and shoved a ten round tube in their. and just switched as the day when on. cool idea I thought.

I zip tie teh longbow mag holder with the mesh to my leg and me belt, works perfect and doesnt get in my way, and if you run it shouldnt slide out if you have the mags set right in the holster.

I would recommend getting the leg holster, it seems very convenient and out of the way.
