    I have been carrying my Glock 36, without any extra magazines, and I have just ordered a double magazine carrier to add to my EDC.

    Depends on my mood more than anything. There have been times I carried 2 spares, and once 4. but generally I carry a backup mag and call it a day.

    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    1 extra when I carry the PX4 or the P229. When I carry my BG .380 I carry 2 extras.

    In urban areas, I carry a 5" 1911 and a spare magazine plus a pocket BUG and a spare magazine. In rural areas, I switch the 1911 for a Glock G20 SF or FNH FNX-45 Tactical and two spare fifteen round magazines.

    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    Just one. Usually a hi cap version of my carry gun: 17 round mag for my 9mm Glocks and 13 round mag for my .45 Glocks.

    When I go small: my G42 or 340PD, I carry a standard 6 rd mag or one speed strip respectively.

    On my largest gun, my 40oz 5inch 1911 runs with a standard 8 rd spare mag as well.

    Zilch. Most of the time I have either a revolver or XDS (5 shots) or a shield (7 shots).

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    0 most of the time. If I am going out into the wild, both literally and figuratively, I will carry one extra. I don't feel the need to carry more.

    I have a spare mag on my body about half the time, the other half the spare mag is in my jeep.

    Between one and three. These are six to twelve round mags. If I'm carrying a revolver, two to four reloads.
