    Ditto on the 4 to 5. Sometimes more...better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them...previous year of mag availability a lesson learned.

    I'm with Stoveman. I have about 4-6 magazines per handgun. Some more than others though.

    I have this husband who doesn't believe in running short of anything.................we have LOTS of magazines.

    Back when he fished regularly you wouldn't believe the number of lures he had!

    Currently, 4.

    2 loaded up for carry, and 2 spares for range use. I'm thinking of getting a few more just to have though.

    I only have two mags for my RIA 1911, which needs to change for sure. Tons of mags for my Glocks though, but I shoot them a lot more.

    Thinking about it some more - Copius 9mm and .45, if just those two calibers were used the average would probably jump to 7-8. But offset that with a S&W .380 that I only have one for, a Ruger .22 that I only have a couple for, etc... it probably averages 4-5.

    For the AR...you dont want to know, lol. Lets just say I aint worried about a mag ban.

    For pistols, 5-6. I have a couple of my fathers pistols that have bad mags, and are out of production, now. I learned from him that a pistol without mags is an expensive paper weight.

    It depends on the purpose for the gun, but usually at least 5 each.

    I have, off the top of my head:
    Nano : 1x 6rnd, 2x 8rnd
    PPQ: 8x 15rnd, 2x 17rnd, 1x 33rnd
    1911: about 5 or 7 std. gov't mags?
    AR pistol: 10x 30rnd USGI, 10x gen3 30rnd Pmag windowed
    TT33: 7 or 8 std. mags

    I need a few more mags for my Ruger Mk I, Beretta 1934 .380 (9mm short), and a few others though.
