    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
