    I carry a spare mag for my .380 because it only holds 7, and the likelyhood of missing the target with my gun is good because it is a mouse gun. 13 rounds is hopefully enough for battle 5 minutes or less.

    Well, I carry just the one right now with one up the pipe for a total of 14 in my Glock 23. I bought holster for my spare mag but I'm just trying to still get used to having something on my right hip without adding something on my left too. LOL

    I've always found that carrying some weight on both sides helps with the distribution and doesn't leave me feeling "uneven"

    It isn't so much balance or distribution but bump and concealment. First I have to get over worrying about whether anyone can see the Glock before I start adding another bump on the other side of my body.

    I carry three mags( one in the gun) two more on my left side for a total of 45 rounds. But now that my mag pouch does not fit on the 5.11 belt I find my self carrying just my M&P 40 and no mags.

    I carry a 1911 ccw with 18total rounds (one extra)
    and a G17 on duty with 52 rounds..(two extra) my Glock came with 3 mags, the mag pouch holds 2 so I figured why not...
    You hit the nail on the head ClearSightTactical! I also carry an extra mag mainly to fix malfunctions. Like you said an extra mag will cure many malfunction issues. Here is a perfect example. I came home one night after working all day and running some errands. As I took off my holster and set it on my counter I noticed the mag had jarred loose. So if I would have needed to defend myself that day after one shot the mag would have hit the ground. It would have been much easier to grab the spare on my belt then to try to pick up a mag on the ground, while trying to find cover.

    As of now I carry my Kimber and one extra mag
