I carry extra mags because I like having lots of ammo with me.
The amount of time it took you to copy/paste the links to all those other threads and rudely suggest that others should "use the search feature"....you could have simply ignored this thread since it clearly irritated you so greatly.
Sometimes I just don't get it. It's a discussion forum...for things to be discussed. Without new threads, old topics or not, this and any other forum would be dead.
2 extra mags...

Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
Just because someone starts a new thread doesn't mean it is 'new' - know wut I mean, Vern?
"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
I am with scorpion and others. I carry 70% LCP 25% LCR and 5% SR9c all Rugers and no extra rounds. I always have a Spyderco knife, iPhone, earbuds, and Olight. I expect I will do what I need to get done or get help. Sometimes I carry speedloaders for my LCR when in suspect situations but that is not often any more. I guess I am playing the odds.
G26 loaded with std 10 rounder. G17 as a spare in back pocket. G17 mag is easier to grab than a G26 mag and stays upright easier.
My EDC is an S&W M&P 40c. 10+1 in the gun and 10rd spare mag.
The last time this subject appeared I think my EDC was a S&W N frame 25-5 with two speed loaders on Right side belt plus a 6 rd. speed strip in pocket. I have since gone to a Glock 17 RMR with at least one magazine and a K-Bar TDI. For 911 responses I carry a Glock 37 with Surefire 200WML W/DG Switch and CT Lazer + 2 extra Mags. but I will probably soon move the surefire WML to my G-17 when I can get a holster for the G-17/light set-up (the RMR sight is in the way on some holsters)
There are 2 reasons: first, that the magazine may have become defective, thus causing the malfunction. Second, that by removing the mag it allows any cartridges to fall that might have been missed by a faulty extractor.
in all reality, a second pistol would be a better way to deal with a type 3 malfunction. but, it's usually easier to carry an extra mag, rather than an extra pistol.
ETA: highly recommend searching previous threads. not that you can't revisit a topic, but there is a lot of good info by former members as well as current ones. it also helps the inquirer to better form a question.

And am I suppose to search the forum everytime I post.....??? I am sure I am the only person here who does not do a search everytime. I have tried searches before and ya know what, I do not find what I want sometimes. Next time I have a problem forming a question sir I will ask you first for your advice.
I carry just one extra mag full.
