2 extra mags with my Glock at the bedside.
Remember...Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box and the cartridge box
Yes. Spare mag is in the SmartCarry along with the gun. I slip the SmartCarry off and place it nearby, next to the flashlight. I also have my cell phone clipped to my SmartCarry in case I need to call for reinforcements.
I do one better. i put my 1911 on the nightstand along with my two spare mags
then I pull the Desert Warrior with the X200 and two 10 round mags and put those there...right next to the AR15 loaded with 75 grain Hornady TAPs
I don't want to mess with stumbling to the safe when the zombies hit

Ha, ha, ha.... I have 2 guns... so I don't have to worry initially about reloading a clip ) ....... then 2 extra clips for each. A shotgun and 2 other handguns are only 5 steps and a 4 digit number away.
I always have at least one extra mag for each pistol, a couple for my AR 4 feet away and at least 5 flashlights within reach.
Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

No extra magazine, just the P-3at and flash light.
While my shtf plan is not the best, if I had to guess, most of us on this forum are better prepared than 99% of the population.
Long term plan is to buy something used such as a Glock/XD type that has a high capacity magazine, mount a light to the rail (not necessarily always use it) I would also have a handheld flashlight, purchase 1 spare magazine for it, and keep it in a small safe on/buy the bed. At night I would swap out my ECD for the night gun and should be good to go for bumps in the night.
An ounce of lead is worth 200lbs of cop.
Whatever pistol I have access too also has at least one spare mag in a mag holder on whatever pants I will be donning as I get out of bed.
870 and other goodies are also available to defend the family and home if necessary.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
I keep the 19 in the bedstand with 1 in the chamber, holstered. Then 3 spare loaded mags and 100 rds of ball ammo. I just want to be ok if the zombies come. Oh i also got the savage 5ft away. But that is no good in the house but incase i go to the roof to pick some off. I need to stop come up with a better senario. LOL
The choices you make today define you of who you are tommorow

Yes, of course. My bedroom is my 'safe' room. If under attack I can baricade it. I have 2 spare mags for my Bedroom pistol as well as my daily carry pistol.
A loaded 44 Mag carbine and over 1000 rounds of 45ACP and 500 rnds of 44Mag.
I have about a dozen loaded guns in the house at anyone time and they all have extra mags.

One extra magazine for 2 different pistols I may be carrying. I'll carry the G30 for awhile and then the P99. Its easier to keep 2 magazines in the nightstand. I also keep extra loaded magazines in my SUV. Plus an extra on me when out and about. I use 16 round magazines for SD ammo and have 3 of them. I have 15 rd magazines for target and practice shooting.
Its possible for me to have 64 SD rounds available when out of town with the Walther.
HELGA: Where are you going?
HAGAR: To sign a peace treaty with the King of England.
HELGA: Then why take all those weapons?
HAGAR: First we gotta negotiate...
Yap... one of those Glock 18...30 shot magazines.
I keep two 10 round mags in a double mag holster inside my safe along with my carry gun of that day loaded with a third 10 rd. mag., minimum.
Most often though two pistols are kept there along with 3 to 4 mags per pistol and chambering be it .45 or 9MM.
I grab a gun and the mag holster in one motion with ease. The safe is digital and I've memorized the keypad and practiced at entering the code in pitch black (bathroom with door closed and light out).
It's better to have too much at hand than not enough, and need it.
