    Several years ago, I was carrying one of my spare mags, a Chip McCormick with welded baseplate, as I recall, in a vest pocket. I noticed something rattling, and felt in my pocket. Loose rounds, loose spring, detached baseplate. Spontaneous, too; not dropped, bumped, etc. Mechanical devices sometimes fail, and no mechanical portion of a pistol fails more often than magazines do.

    Oh, and FWIW, both Glock and an aftermarket supplier or two make "+2" baseplates, and some make even longer ones.

    I usually carry my Glock 19 with ONE in the pipe and an empty magwell because I'm that darn good.

    I'm kidding, of course.

    I always carry at least one spare mag. Ever since I received my Pure Kustom double and single mag pouches, that is all that I use. They hold them very close to the body and are canted at the perfect angle for a clean, fast reload. I am currently waiting for a single and a double for my Glock 36. Can't wait.

    I always recommend to carry a spare mag when asked by a newbie. To each his own.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
