    How many spare mags do you carry?

    Just curious how many folks carry more than one spare mag. I pack a Glock 23 with a 13rd mag (in the gun) and one extra 13rd on my week side. I hope that I never have to use it, but I feel 26 rounds are plenty if I do.

    Roughly 50% of the time I carry two spare magazines...

    Ten round .45 ACP or 9 rd. 9MM both in 1911 format.
    Totals are 29 for .45 ACP and 28 for 9MM.

    Depends on what I'm carrying. When I have my CZ with me 12+1 in the gun and a spare 12 round mag. If I'm carrying my 1911 7+1 in the gun and 2 spare 7 round mags.

    I only carry one spare mag. If I use up what is in my gun, I am in trouble already.

    Sometimes I carry no spare mags (16+1) and sometimes I carry two spare mags (49 rounds ) my CRKT, a can of Sabre Red, and hopefully a good grasp of what's going on around me!

    2 for whatever gun I am carrying. If I have my 442 on my ankle or in the pocket as well I also have a speedloader for that.

    As another poster stated - sometimes one, and sometimes none. I already have to schlep a lot of stuff around, ad keeping a spare mag on me when I have on light clothing makes things difficult.

    My Kimber has 8 rounds, and I rarely top off the magazine. Perhaps as I grow into this, I'll feel the need for more, but I accept cerain risks as outside the bounds of my influence.

    YMMV.
