    I carry one in my XD 9 Hi Cap and two extra Hi Caps. You do not want to be accused of (excuse the pun) overkill in a court of law if you would shoot someone.

    HOLY CRAP - I thought I was bad carrying up to 60 rounds. Goes to show ya, now matter how crazy you are, there's always someone crazier!

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
    I had a magazine in my G17 lose the base plate, I noticed it immediately, but it was a "Oh ****" moment. Had I been involved in "serious social work" that could have turned out badly if no other magazine was available.

    My answer is a bit more complicated than most. I have five different guns available to me for concealed carry. 90% of the time it's a Glock G30SF. I almost always have at least one extra magazine for that gun, and often will carry two.

    During winter months when I wear bulkier clothing I may opt for my Sig P229 that allows for more ammunition capacity. I consider this a compact pistol, though it does maybe hug the line a little. I pretty much always have two spare magazines in the wintertime.

    On some rare occasions during the summer, on very hot days where skimpy clothing is called for I may opt for my SP101 357 Magnum. It is very small and stainless, which suits it to that environment. There are no magazines for that gun. I used to carry a speedloader around with an extra five rounds for this gun but I was never entirely happy with the limited capacity that represented, which accounts for the rarity of my using this carry method. However, this gun is about to be sent off to be ported and modified to accept moonclips, so it will be better suited for summer carry again. I'll probably carry two reloads for it then.

    The other two guns, a Glock G27 and a Smith 4516-1, likely won't see carry again, but I have two spare magazines for each of them that I carried with them.

    At the moment, it's the one in the gun+a spare in my holster's spare mag pouch. I've already ordered two additional mags for my EDC gun as well, since it's gonna be my only carry gun for awhile.

    In Arizona if they make it you can carry it, have seen 9mm 32 round mags. Personally, I carry 16 round magazines by Springfield and EAA Tanfoglio Witness

    The reeason I mention this is because by using the anti's terms you legitimize their argument. Your magazines are standard capacity

    When I carry my 1911 - I carry an additional 2 mags
    When I carry my Walther - I carry one additional.

    If I can't get away with 19 to 31 rounds, then I'll use what the other guy brought to the party.
