    Mag holder has two slots. Seems kinda dumb to me to have an empty slot!

    Always atleast one reload. Murphy likes me too much.

    I carry two mags on weak side. Helps balance my load.

    Don't feel like the Lone Ranger! Murphy seems to like messing with me also.

    One reload no matter what gun or what form of carry.

    I got one of them too. I also have a single mag pouch for those weapons that I only have one spare mag.

    Anyone have problems with their spares trying to jab them in the ribs?

    That's the problem I have with the double mag pouch, so I hardly ever use it now. I have an Uncle Mikes single mag pouch with a velcro closed cover. That has been my favorite, since the fabric keeps the mag from jabbing my rib cage.

    . Depends on what I'm carrying and how I'm carrying it. When I carry my XD 45 in a fanny pack, then I carry 2 extra magazines, since I have the room. When I'm carrying my Glock 26 in a pocket holster, then I carry only 1 magazine, using a magazine holder that I got from the Glock Store. It sits horizontally along my belt, rather than vertically. Looks like a holder for knife or a multitool

    Cool

    I voted one or more , but with Qualifications.

    I always have several mags or speedloaders in my vehicle.
    If Im just popping into a store or away from my vehicle for
    15-20 minutes , I may not carry extra.

    But if I am a significant distance away , or away for a while,
    I carry at least one.

    Two mags on person, two mags of each gun in car and two mags each gun in truck. Whenever I leave the house, I have at least 4 mags within a reasonable reach of me.

    Always a spare mag for the Glocks and at least two speed loaders when I carry the revolvers. I also keep a spare mag in my vehicle.

    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!
