17+1 in my Glock, no spare as of yet.
This is a discussion on How Many Rounds? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; 17+1 in my Glock, no spare as of yet....
Seven in the G36 along with seven in the LCP.
as soon as ccw comes xdm .40 16+1 , 1 mag 16 =33 rounds
For me it's 19 rounds of BB .380 for my Sig P238 BUG and 15 rounds of .45 FMJ's for my Kimber Ultra. If I go toes up for lack of rounds, chances are good that the big guy wanted me to come home.

At least 15; more, depending on the gun. If it's the snubby, the basic 5 plus a speed strip and a speedloader are the normal complement. Any of the auto loaders I carry with any frequency has at least 7+ 1, then add at least one spare mag.

16 carrying the Glock 19 and 15 with the Ultra CDP II.
7 plus one in my 1911 and one spare mag (always) = 15.
I carry 26 for my two guns.

With my Sig P228, I usually leave with 15 in the mag. I may or may not take a spare, just depends. Now that I have the M&P .357c, I'll carry the 10 in it with a 15 round spare with an X-grip sleeve on it.

Most of the time my off-duty carry is a G27 with one spare 23 mag. 9+1 in the 27 and 13 in the spare mag give me 23 rounds. On rare ocassions I carry two spare mags giving me 36. When I carry my G30, it is 9+1 and a spare 21 mag of 13 rounds again giving me 23 rounds. When I carry my 19, it is 15+1 and a spare 17 mag with 17 rounds giving me 33 rounds.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
Depends on the gun that I have for that day.
It could range from 9 rounds to 70 rounds.
