I've pretty much decided that I will be playing with my m733 at the night 'op. I have also thought seriously about purchasing a tracer unit to use. As tracer BBs are a bit pricy I have decided to pick up a couple of mid-caps to go with the five or so standards I already have and space the tracer BBs about four apart. This will require more magazine changes than I'm used to and I can't imagine trying to fumble around putting empty mags back into my vest pockets in the dark. (clearly dropping them on the ground is out of the question..)

What makes a good dump pouch? Which side of the belt is this item best placed on?

Tactical Tailor, High Speed Gear Incorporated, Eagle Industries and Maxpedition all make good dump bags. Try the following online retailers:

http://www.optactical.com
http://www.skdtac.com
http://www.eagleindustries.com
http://www.tacticaltailor.com

The HSGI dump pouch will be the most expensive, but you get what you pay for. The Eagle and Maxpedition pouches both offer roll away capabilities. The Tactical Tailor pouch offers a lot of volume, fair price and ease of use. Basically, you kind of have to figure out what you're most comfortable with or interested in.

I've been using the Tactical Tailor pouch for over a year now and have been quite pleased with it. I'm planning to upgrade, however, to the HSGI drop leg dump pouch. Merely for greater volume and leg strap, which won't interfere as much with my knee pads.

As for which side to wear the pouch on - typically the side opposite your strong (trigger) hand. You'll remove the magazine with that hand, drop it in the bag, extract a new mag and load. All the while keeping your strong hand ready at the trigger.
