    In most cases, my bug IS my spare magazine(s). On some occasions when I just carry my primary, I do carry at least one spare mag. Never carry a spare mag for my bug.

    I don't, one in the pipe and a high capacity magazine ought to lay'em out or get'em running for dear life. Criminals are cowards and when they are surprised or confronted they usually run.
    Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.

    Yes, one reload for my BUG. My rationale is if I need my BUG, then it has suddenly become my primary.

    I carry one gun. G19. In high capacity guns I really think an extra mag is is overkill. With 2 or 3 extra What exactly are you expecting with 50 plus rounds of ammunition? One extra mag supports the mag failure argument. In low cap mags I can understand extra mags.

    The main reason I carry a high capacity gun is so I would not need extra mags. A BUG would be our of the question. I already conform enough of my life around my gun.

    Carry my G23 plus a spare mag. Don't think I'd ever need even half the rounds in my gun, let alone another mag in a SD encounter - but you never know. A spare mag in my pocket is no big deal, and alot better than a BUG to me.

    I don't carry spares for a backup gun. I don't carry a backup gun. I don't carry spares for my primary gun. 96% of the population doesn't carry anything. Push a wheelbarrow full of ammo if it makes you feel safer.

    No backup mags for the backup gun carried. They are in the mag storage box.

    I generally carry two spare mags with my Glock 26. When I start carrying a BUG, I'll always have at least one reload.

    I usually carry two J frame Smiths.... i would use one as a NY reload if necessary, and always carry a quick strip in my left rear pocket. bunker
