  1. How many spare mags do you carry?

    As a CCW, not considering duty, or mags in your vehicle or in close proximity.

    How many mags do you carry on your person when CCW?

    Maybe if I carried a 1911 with 8 rounds I'd concider carrying a spare. But I have 16 now and if I need more, I'm in Deep....

    I carry an extra magazine not for the extra rounds but because from my own research the part most likely to fail in any handgun (including Nighthawks, semi-custom, and custom) is the magazine. You'd be hurting in a real bad way should the magazine foul up. I do agree if you need more than 16 you don't need another mag you need a swat team.

    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...

    One extra mag for my HK plus a Glock 19 as back up. So I guess you would say three mags.

  8. If I'm carrying my .380 Makarov (8 round mag + 1 in the chamber) I carry an extra magazine.
    If I'm carrying my FEG P9r, 14 rounds and 1 in the chamber suffice (hopefully).

    I carry 1 extra mag which gives me 25 rounds of .40.
    You can have my freedom as soon as I'm done with it!!!

    I just carry the 10 rounds in the pistol..
    I'm not in a war zone and likely if something happens it is going to be one or maybe two BG's.
    I may be wrong, but 10 should be sufficient, or the SWAT team will be on the way..

    If I lived in the big city like I used to, I may feel differently, but 10 is enough for me to feel comfortable.
