    The best place to have ammunition is in the gun you are carrying.

    10 in the spare mag, 11 in the EDC.

    Always maxed out. Why leave room. Can never have too much ammo.

    I top it off. Sometimes if I know I will be carrying it and may have to disarm I place the extra round in the spare magazine, which I leave one bullet shy of being full just in case. I don't have to worry about a loose round in my pocket or in my car.

    Always fully loaded (full mag +1). Why leave some of your weapon's capability at home?

    EDC and BUG is full mags. I do have some C&R guns that DO NOT like being full so I load one short. But that is fun time at the range.

    Im my .40 Kahr I always top off. With the .40 XD I usually don't as it can be a real pain to get that last round in the mag although I never unload the weapon so I should probably just stuff number 12 in there.

    I always top it off. The only problem is when you unload, you've got a loose round.
