    My typical load is 7+1 of 9mm in my Kahr P9 plus 8 rounds in the spare ("extended") mag for 16 total.

    Alternately, if I were to be carrying the BHP in .40S&W, it would be 10+1 in the gun and another 10 in a spare mag, for a total of 21.

    Looking at the previous responses, I'm beginning to think I'm a lightweight!

    How odd. There's definitely a trend here. Most people are close to that 25-35 range I had guessed.

    See I agree with what ExSoldier says here but not for the same reason.
    I carry reloads for the express purpose of not being effectively unarmed or underarmed in the wake of an incident, and to satisfy Mr. Murphy because I am paranoid. It's the same reason I carry multiples of almost everything on my person.

    With the P99, I carrry 15+1 and an additonal 15 rounder. No BUG for me, so I am at 31.

    If I am carrying one of the 1911's, it's 8+1 with an additional two mags in a belt pouch, so that's 25.

    There's also at least one pig poker and a Mini-Mag light.

    I'm usually carrying my Kimber CDP compact with 7 rounds and 1 spare mag with 8 rounds. So for me, 15 rounds.

    I carry 3 different guns as primary so...
    >Glock 19 with +2 floor plate for the mag in the gun and 1 in the chamber and 2 spare G17 mags with +2 floor plates for 56 total
    >Glock 20 15+1 in the gun, 2 spare mags with +2 floor plates for 50
    >Para Ord P14 .45 14+1 in the gun 2 spare mags for 43
    Then I carry a BUG about 50% of the time; Grendel P10 .380 with 10 rounds.

    With my primary (BHP) I carry 2 15 Round mags for 30 Rounds. I usually don't bother putting the extra round back into the mag after chambering one.

    I carry the extra mag for the same reasons as listed here previeously: In case of a malfuntion with the primary mag, and better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    In my "throw something on for a quick milk run" mode I use a J Frame with 2 speed loads for 15 rounds.

    If traveling cross country I keep more mags in the vehicle, with extra ammo, in addition to the truck gun (SKS with 140 rounds of ammo in a bandoleer on stripper clips)

    On my usual kick around days I carry my Kahr PM9 with 6+1 and a spare mag of 6 9mm 124gr+P Gold Dots. So it would be 13 for this set up.

    If I am going to any place that might be questionable I would have my Sig P229 with 12+1 and a spare mag of 12 357sig 125gr. Gold Dots. I would also have my PM-9 as my BUG. Total ammo = 38.

    If I need more than that then I have somehow got myself into a war and should have brought a rifle. :D

    be well . . .
