    Spare mags and how many?

    I have at least five magazines for each of my pistols. 4 out of 5 are Glocks, and the larger pistol mags will interchange with the smaller pistols in the same caliber---but I'm not counting those toward the total for each individual pistol. G22-6 mags, G17-7 mags, SIG P220-5 mags, G27-5 mags, G19-5 mags. How many do you all keep for each specific pistol?

    For me it varies on the gun but in most cases at least 5 any less can make going to the range a pain in the arse
    My world is the only one that counts

    It ranges from 2 to 15, depending on the purpose that the handgun serves...

    2 a piece, for the couple of "house guns"
    4-6 For the CCWs
    12-15 For competition guns

    Mag price was & interchangability one of the reasons I went glock for EDC.
    5 hi cap for the G23, and 9 hi cap for the 31 and those work in both.
    ... and 10-rd mags are plentiful and cheap for IDPA.

    I started buying more last year, and plan to do so this year. Especially high-cap mags.

    I'm stocking up on some "standard capacity" magazines this year - I've already got over 5 for each handgun and 10 for the AR - need to bump that number up a digit or so...

    I have two 1911's in .45ACP (Springfield Loaded stainless and Dan Wesson CBOB) and have a total of 21 1911 magazines:

    10 Springfield (7 rounds)
    2 Dan Wesson (7 rounds)
    10 Chip McCormick PowerMags (8 rounds)

    I have a Sig 228 and have 5 magazines (13 rounds) NOTE: These 13 round magazines are pre-1994 magazines so they are legal in NY.

    I dont have as many mags as I want for some of my guns. What I have is what the guns came with.

    Kimber Tactical Ultra II came with 1 I have one Wilson mag for it too.

    My Glocks has 10 each / MP .40 has 8 / Walther PPKS has 5 / MP .40c has 3 with two coming in the mail from the rebate / AR15 has 25 or 26 I recently discovered PMags from Magpul so that number is increasing at an alarming rate......
