    Always!

    When I CC, it's on my off hip, at 9 o'clock in an OWB/IWB mag holder.

    I always carry at least one spare reload, be it a mag or a moonclip/speedloader/speed strip. Usually I use a some sort of mag or ammo pouch but a lot of times I just drop it in my pocket.

    ditto

    If my EDC P220 (single stack), it's two mags, OWB.

    If my deeper conceal compact .40 (dbl stack), it's one mag, IWB.

    21-25 rounds, counting the one in the pipe -- for typical carry.

    If a BUG situation, I switch to a full size & a compact M&P .40 w/ two extra dbl stack full size that will work in both the full size & the compact.

    Yes and it depends on the pistol, but either in a mag pouch or in a jacket pocket

    No, never have and have no plans on changing this. Whatever the capacity of the gun I am carrying +1 is what I have available.

    Always at least one extra reload - support side OWB.

    I assume you ankle carry because you can't or don't want to wear a cover garment over your belt. You can disguise your extra mag in a cell phone case - one with a flap. I am not fond of pocket carry for the extra mag as lint and other junk can get inside it and cause a malfunction.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Always and I just drop both in my pockets. Mags in my weak side front and LCP in my strong side front. I sometimes ankle carry my LCP, but it's so small and easy to pocket carry, for me that's the ticket.

    Yes...two extra mags, weak side, 9 o'clock when carrying my Glock.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    1 extra mag in a cell phone pouch, OWB, 9 o'clock. If it's the .380, I'll stick the mag in my watch pocket on my jeans sometimes.

    Just curious as to why you went to the ankle carry? Btw, I don't carry extra mags but I do wear a back up gun a lot.
