I do. How could I not? They’ve gotten a bit pricey I see. Keep mine on:
Web belt with canteen and GI .45/w holster + 2 mag pouch 3/30 rnd AR mags in GI pouch make a nice SHTF strap and go.

As far as the thread goes. I only use the USGI 20rd mags. Its what I carried, and am used to.
The 30s do not reload as fast. I gave those to the wife, daughter and grand daughter.
