    He he He.,.. I have had a carry licence for over 38 years. I have tons of guns however I don't carry exta ammo. Being blessed by living in a low crime area. I carry 4 to 6 rounds in firearms. Figgure if i can't defend myself with what i have I get out of there. I am not the Popo so I won't play one.
    Lately I have been carring my COP Derringer. I switch off with my Colt Cobra, Taurus M450Ti, and my Ruger Montado in OBHs. Still want to carry my S&W 327 PC 8rd snubbie and my Chiappa snubbie as I have leather for both.
    Still Havnt found a good holster yet to carry my VZ 61 Scorpion yet which would work for one of my Mauser Broomhandles.
    Yes i have about every semi-auto pistol produced however I like my revolvers. On hot days I do however carry my KelTec P11.

    Life is good,

    Great post. I have never understood why anybody would carry firearms worth hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, then put said firearms in fifteen dollar holsters, on short rations by carrying four bucks worth of ammo at any given time.

    Great points about magazine failures. That is a good reason to carry a spare. Thanks for pointing that out.

    I'm probably going to be buying my very first handgun next week. Been saving up for it for months and I've already gotten all the accessories for it (cleaning kit, safe, ammo for break in, etc.) I also ordered a double mag holder from Blackhawk, in which I will be carrying two mecgar flush fitting 15 round P229 magazines, with a third in the gun.

    I keep reading people say that on average, gunfights involving civilians only last 3-5 rounds. Well, on average, civilians don't get into gunfights. I'm not counting on the average, I'm preparing for the worst case scenario. If I only fire five rounds and the threat is taken care of, great! In fact, I would greatly prefer to fire no rounds. But if my magazine fails, or there's more than one attacker, or he's hopped up on drugs which make him able to continue his assault on me until I've dumped all 45 rounds into him, then I'll be prepared.

    Neither are stripper clips. They cannot be used directly; they are used to charge a magazine.

    None extra if I run out I am already dead or the fight is over. There is a limit to what you can prepare for .
    Depending on what I am carrying at the time it might be 6+1 or it could be 14+1. Most of the time 10 +1

    You should carry a spare mag not for the round count but because 90% of issues with auto loaders are mag related. 7 rounds in a mag that won't feed are no better than the 700 rounds you have at home.

    A little bit of an aside but lots of people ention carrying an extra magazine for a failure exercise. I just can't see how this makes a lot of sense. If you think your magazines will fail at the critical moment, while not just carry a bug instead?

    OK, question. A lot are saying to carry a spare mag because failures are caused by magazines. Got that part. But the failures I have had (10's of thousands of rounds experience) that were caused by the mag I was able to overcome by performing some emergencey action. How often would you in a CC/self defense situation actually drop your mag, clear/correct if necessary the malfunction, then insert a new mag? This is not to say not to carry an extra mag if you want. But I have heard anything from a lot to 90 percent of issues are caused by the mag. Unless the bottom fell out of the thing and it is a dynamic situation I am better off IMO to correct the malfunction.

    I don't carry any extra rounds but I am starting to feel like I should at least carry an extra mag
