    Sub Compact Carry Magazines

    If you're the type of person that carries extra mags which ones do your carry with a sub compact?

    The XD9SC has a compact 10 round mag and a 16 round extended mag. Obviously, one would conceal the weapon with a 10 round mag. With the exception of extra concealability and compliance with state law, why would I ever want to carry extra 10 round mags as opposed to 16 round mags?

    It seems if the 1st 11 rounds weren't enough then you'd probably want/need the higher capacity mags for the rest of the confrontation.

    I carry a Glock 26 with its 10 shot magazine, and keep a Glock 30 shot magazine in the truck and motorhome as a backup.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I have an XD40SC with a 10 and 12 round mag.
    the 10 is loaded most of the time with the 12 in a pouch.
    if consealing is easier (winter or cold day) then the 12 is loaded with the 10 in the pouch

    I've got the XD40 SC. If I have the 9 round mag in the gun I carry the 12 round on my belt. I do the reverse if I have the 12 round mag in the gun...

    Might as well carry the larger magazine in reserve. Once you have to put it into the gun, your not worrying anymore about printing!

    Pretty much the same here. Carry 13 +1 in the G23 and 15 round mag for back up. The 15 round mag if for running away. Hopefully, I can pin them down long enough for someone as slow as me to get away.

    Me, too

    I carry a Glock 19 with a G17 mag as the spare. When I carry the 1911, I carry a Chip 8 rounder in it and a Wilson 10 round as a spare.

    I carry a spare mag as much for magazine malfunctions as for extra rounds.

    Ever accidentally hit the mag button and hear your mag go clattering to the floor? Ever slam into something hard and have the base plate break, shooting spring, follower, and rounds across the room? Neither have I, but it would suck, right?

    That said, with my MP40C, I carry the full size mag as my reload whenever I can conceal it.

    I carry a G33 with standard (9 RD) mag. I usually carry 2 standard with Pierce +1's or 2 LEO +2's as extra in a double belt pouch. Sometimes if I'm really feeling the need, I carry two G32 (13 RD) mags. I always carry 2 extra with the sub.
