This is a discussion on Do you Carry an extra mag? and where? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; No, I don't. My Glock 30 with 10 rounds of .45 ACP is heavy enough! But then again, maybe if I carried a spare mag ...
No, I don't. My Glock 30 with 10 rounds of .45 ACP is heavy enough! But then again, maybe if I carried a spare mag on the other side, I wouldn't walk with a tilt. Sometimes I feel like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
I wonder who or what those who carry extra ammo think they're going to run up against. Do you really feel like that many BGs are out to get you? I feel that if I need to reload, I'm already in way over my head.

The reason I carry a reload isn't necessarily for the extra ammo, it's for the extra mag. You never know when you'll get a malfunction, and it's much faster to use a separate mag for the clear and reload. Not to mention that I wouldn't want to put the mag that just had a malf. back into the gun.

One in the gun and one in weak side front pocket
Most of the time yes. With an auto a mag. in my off side vest or coat pouch, or a holder. If a wheel gun a speed loader.

Depends on where I am/going. The pistols I carry typically carry 14 or more. If heading to South Florida, I carry a spare 16 round mag and a five-shot snub as a backup.
Can someone recommend a good mag pouch, I currently have a multitool pouch I can use well enough, but it is big and bulky and prints very strangely.
One in the gun and one on the week side in a mag carrier.

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. If I do, it is on my pants pocket or in my truck.

No, I do not carry one. Usually have one in the truck just to have I guess. I have been tossing around the idea and need to invest in a mag holder. Especially with moving back to NY so all my high cap magazines are illegal here.
Sometimes a spare mag wallet (for single stack mags) from abetterholster.
Other times, a digital camera/PDA case on my belt.
Still other times, I use the mag pocket built into the Smartcarry.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all.
I do. In a multi tool pouch on the right (weak) side.
