    One in the gun and two more on the belt or in the pocket.

    Any comments?
    First, you want to STOP the threat. If he's disabled, he can still hurt/kill you. BTW if he dies, that means he's stopped, right?

    Most malfunctions are caused by magazine issues. You should always carry at least 1 reload just in case. You do malfunction drills, right? This is an extension of that. For those who believe tha magazine in the gun is all they need, all I can say is I've seen a lot of magazine failures from the one in the gun. It may have been defective when you first loaded up or it was damaged after you loaded up. Have you ever fired a round and got a FTF? I've watched people whose mags lost the baseplate and ejected all of their rounds, spring, and follower WITHOUT the shooter noticing until it Failed To Fire. YMMV

    Hollowpoints might expand, but bullets won't shrink.

  4. I carry 7 in my LCP and 1 extra mag containing 6, so two mags, 13 rounds.

    I always carry two extra magazines. With one in the chamber that's 46 rounds. Should be enough.

    In all the years I've carried I've never had to fire a shot. Based on that I choose to carry a multitool instead of a third magazine (there's only so much space on my belt)
    I used to carry two spares (2x13) and a light (SureFire). I'm looking for a single pouch with a built in light holder in place of the second mag. 13 + 13 + 1 and a BRIGHT light. I've used the light a lot, my knife even more, and the gun a couple of times. 27 rounds of 230g .45 is heavy enough.

    one in the gun, one other. Depends on the gun as to how many rounds that is. When wearing the M&P 40C, thats still 20 round.

    One 10-round in gun; one spare on belt; two spares in fanny pack that I often carry when traveling.
