It's not going to be a dealbreaker for me if they don't drop free, but it was a question I specifically asked DT and was given a specific, confirmed answer. Given the entire chain of events, I have trust issues with them, lol. I run the Regulation Tactical reflex mag pouches, so no need for a dump. Just nice to know it does drop free it if need be.
Oh, I completely agree that it would be nice to know beforehand. It just isn't an issue for me one way or the other.
