    I carry a five shot lcr and a blade. If that is not enough, I can out run and out fight most, and there is a 12 gauge in my trunk.

    This thread has been done at least 5 times since I've been here.

    I occasionally carry extra ammo, but not often. *This is an improvement from the last thread. Guantes may have been a slight influence.

    You are correct....my Springfield XD that I carry uses magazines....I stand corrected.....however my Smith & Wesson 40 cal 610 uses clips and I carry stripper clips for my AR-15.

    Para P12 with on extra and my AMT 45 with one extra as well.
    Total of 32. Not for the round count, but for malfunctions. Don't want to have to throw a jammed pistol at them because of a mag failure.

    No spare mags. I'm going to just rely on my 15 rounds in the gun and try my best to gtfo out of the situation.

    For my 1911's I only load seven rounds in the magazines plus one in the chamber. I carry anywhere from one spare magazine to three, I'd guess my average carry would be 8 rounds in the pistol with 14 rounds in the spare mags,for a 22round average.

    Just a full magazine in the pistol unless I'm traveling to the city, then one extra magazine.

    May I just say that, no matter how many times this topic comes up I am always amazed, and disapointed, that we have members here who still refuse to understand that the extra mag isn't for a gun fight that would require a reload, because as armed civilians it is statistically unlikely that we would ever be in a gun fight that would last more than 3 rounds. It is because in modern semi-auto firearms, a magazine failure is the most likely equipment malfunction. You carry the spare magazine for that eventuality. If you do need that gun to save your life or the lives of your loved ones, and the mag in the gun fails you, it's sure going to suck when you don't have a spare to slap in there.

    I always carry a spare magazine. Not because I think I will need a reload but because I understand that my magazine may fail. It is just a metal sleve with a spring and follower in it. They fail. All the time. Work on a range sometime and count the number of mag failures you see in a week. It will surprise you.

    I extra mag - just in case the first one fails. Realisitically, any SD gun action in which the average person would get involved would only last 2 or 3 rounds. I'd like to make sure that I have a good chance of getting those rounds off. Hence, the extra mag. The mag is the weakest link in a semi-auto.

    I carry no extra rounds

    One bad day in Thailand, where US Forces(USAF Air Police) off base were unarmed, we caught some armed robbers robbing US Airmen/Soldiers. A chase started and ended in Tapioca field near Bhuddist Temple. Shots were fired by Thai Police and the BGs(no mention of the 3 full auto 223 FNC rifles they gave us routinely(with 1 30 rd mag). All said and done-BGs in Jail-our ass puckerd+-limited ammo in a no tell situation. Gay military members have less to hide than what we did in Thailand! Today,as 42 yr Mil/State LEO retiree-on me 2 guns with extra mags(mag)-per caliber. 1911 +3/ Glock 21/22 +2, BHP+2, Sig P220 +2 and Back-up-S&W M36 3"/642wCT Laser+15 rds. Long guns in vehicle include a 223 from Ruger/Kel-Tec w/ 120 rds minimum and a 12ga Shotgun w/ extended mag and rifle sights from 2+ plus sources, all with rounds on board. As a Firearms Instructor/Case Agt for my State Police Agency I normally had 5K rounds on board my State vehicle for what we carried for all scenarios+ plus the special weapons. And I was only one of 25! One Agt had access to Full auto weapons thru Century rms LEO program free! BTW-Crime rate in AL is way down!!

    I carry a reload or two regardless of what I'm carrying for the day.
