    "Spare magazines aren’t necessary"

    Who says that? Where are those people? I have some great investment opportunities for them.

    No we can not believe every thing we read, no matter who is making the statement, right or left. Investigate the claims. And, if you have it, use some common sense.

    Myth: Spare magazines aren’t necessary
    Truth: Spare magazines aren’t needed for the purpose of having extra ammunition on hand. They’re needed because many of the issues that cause a semi-automatic pistol to malfunction can be fixed by taking the current magazine out, running the slide, and putting a new magazine into place.
    I am calling BS. Spare magazines are not necessary...Really come on now you list two reasons why they are necessary.

    Well, it's not like I'm going to carry my spare ammo around in my pocket like so much loose change. Besides, how else would you suggest to do a quick reload?

    .
    In some cases spare magazines are not necessary. For instance, when you are carrying a revolver then a speed-loader is necessary.

    Without bearing the scorn of those repliers before me, statistics (and yes that is all they are and do not mean anything if you are the outlier) indicate that well over 90%, and probably closer to 99% than 90%, of all firearm discharges for use in self defense do not amount to more than 3-5 shots fired--well within the capacity of whatever firearm you are carrying. The likelihood of a "jam" with a semi is more probable than some kind of long-lasting "shootout" requiring anything more than those 5 initial cartridges. The statement is correct--the statement is NOT saying that magazines should not be carried if that gives you the confidence of more cartridges--it is merely stating the facts surrounding the use of a spare mag and when it ends up being used the majority of the time.
