    CC with two Mags

    I went to a lecture the other night and Dave from Safe in Rochester made a great point about why he carries 3 mags with him...

    Its not necessarily for additional ammunition but rather in case the magazine in his gun malfunctions. In the event one needs to use ones gun there is not time to take out the mag and see why its not working.

    Drop it and hope the next one works better... (if you even have that much time)

    BUT - I am now carrying 2 mags because i hadn't thought of it that way ...now if i could just find some pre ban hi-cap glock mags!

    Just thought I would share

    BTW anyone in rochester - his $10 lecture was worth it IMO especially if you are new to CCW. I am going to take some of his tactical courses...i will advise how those go after i take em'

    I ALWAYS carry two mags. Wouldn't want my "Lil Baby" G26 to get hongry!! Seriously, extra mags are NOT just for additional ammo just as Dave taught you at the lecture.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    +1. I've always carried extra mags. Mags are usually the weakest part of any firearm...

    One in the gun and one on my left side = 21 rounds of .40 cal.

    I bought a case for a multi-tool and that is what I use to carry the mag. No one notices what's in it.

    Why do you need pre-ban mags? Is that some stupid NY law? I don't believe there's any difference between the current "hi-cap" Glock mags and the old ones, certainly no identifying marks or labels.

    I always carry at least one spare reload, moonclips or mags depending on the gun I'm carrying.
    Never forget. Never forgive.

    An extra mag is a must...in Orlando or Jax...2 more beyond that.

    All you have to do is send them to glock and say they rattle when their loaded and they will send you brand new NORMAL capacity mags.

    I wish I could find a mag holder that wasn't so freakin' bulky and huge, just a clip for the belt and that's it.

    There are some differences. I would suggest asking over on Glocktalk as many people there can tell you the differences. I do believe there is a good picture floating around that area.

    I now carry 3 spares for my primary, and one for my BUG.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.
