I normally carry one reload for each weapon.
This is a discussion on Reloads? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I normally carry one reload for each weapon....
Reloads? I don't need no STEENKING reloads!
At least one mag/speedstrip/speed loader
At least 2
At least 3
At least 4, or more (Loaded for bear!)
I carry 2 mags. As was stated earlier I also have a double mag pouch and feel it would be an awful shame to have an empty slot.

Really depends on wether I'm on the job or not.
I don't have as much risk away from the job, so, usually just 1 extra there, in case murphy tries to have his way with me again....
On the job, usually 2 mags per firearm on me (Generally, I carry 2 at work, Or, if just one firearm on me, 3-4 mags), and at least 3-4 more for each in the vehicle (That's more a symptom of 'hey, you wanna go to the range?'-itis, however). Sadly, if there's a revolver in the equation, I don't carry any extras for that. Neither of us can get speed strips to work well, and, I don't care for the size of the speedloaders. Maybe in the glovebox, but, I don't carry the revolver often. And when I do, it's usually the BUG...
I always have one spare mag on me. It's good practice, in case of mag. failure in the gun( ie baseplate failure) or double feed.
I carry my BHP with 15+1. If I'm heading into a place that I consider to be a high-risk area then I'll stick the 5-shot snub in a pocket, as well.
So I guess I have the New York reload option if needed.

Hand loads in a carry weapon? Only if they could prove themselves reliable over thousands of rounds. If so, then two spares at minimum.
I carry one extra. Putting my ammo count at 35. 17 round mags plus 1 in the pipe.
I haven't seen my ribs in quite some time.Anyone have problems with their spares trying to jab them in the ribs?

Put me down for one mag or speedloader always. I seeme to keep winding up in circumstances that ain't supposed to happen!

1 spare magazine fully loaded to capacity in conjunction with the mag in the weapon...+1 in the pipe. Occasionally 2 fully loaded spare mags.

I normally have my G26 with Pearce extension fully loaded, plus one spare mag in my left pocket. Seems silly not to have it along; it isn't like it weighs me down or anything.
Normally i have 10+1 in primary with one extra mag. Exception is when carrying XD45, then 13+1 with two extra mags.(balance)
I don't carry'em, but I've got nothing against them.
Without going into too much detail about why I don't want to get made at work; they print to much under my work clothes(business dress suits) so I don't carry but one in butt when working. I carry two when not working.
