    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    I carry my 1911s and BHP w/ +1, AFTER checking to see that the pistol and magazines handle reliably.

    Yes, I do plus one always. I've never seen a reason not to and it gives you an additional round, so why would someone NOT want that?

    I don't bother at the range, but will top off +1 if carrying.

    That's the one fault I have with my Shield. A full mag on a closed chamber is a royal pain to insert. I need to take the muzzle off target to get enough leverage to get that topped off mag in the mag well.

    My EDC is a S&W Shield 9X19mm with (8) Rd capacity magazine plus one additional magazine. With that said its either going to be good enough or not good enough but that's the way its going to be.

    One reason I don't do '+1' is convenience.
    Unfortunately I have to go to CA nearly every week. Since I no longer live there I can't legally carry there. And while transporting there it must be unloaded.
    I don't have 1 loose round to keep track of.
    If 51 rounds in three mags and another box of 50 aren't enough, 1 more won't make a difference for me.

    One in the chamber and all that will fit in the mag.

    I do what you do for the same reason you give. Silly? Maybe but it makes me happy.

    Hell, I replace 7 rd factory 1911 mags with 8 rounders [ the 7's get used for practice ] to get that extra round [ making it 9 ready to roll in the gun instead of 8 ] The difference between a 7 round mag loaded and not topped off and the 9 rds I carry in mine would be a 23% reduction in capacity. I carried a 1911 when the only mags that were reliable for street were 7 rounders [ and then the 8's came out and some worked and some didn't but not enough to trust them on the street to save by butt ]. Soon as 8's were made reliable enough a decade later, the 7's were relegated to practice and I increased my capacity by 13% instantly. But when 8's weren't a consideration, no way I'd not top off for the street with a 7 round mag. I'd have considered anyone doing so lacking forethought


    Carry the 8 rd 45 S+W shield mags in gun and spares, the 6 rounders are for practice only. Topped off, 9 rds once again of 45acp.

    Practicing with the double stacks, load insert one in chamber and shoot. Carry double stacks? load, insert one in chamber, remove mag, top off and reinsert. Every round counts when the gun is carried to keep my butt from growing cold.

    Who wants a 23% reduction in potential ammo on board when it's for all the marbles? Not I. Hell, its still a 13% reduction from 8 to stock 7's alone.

    If my pistol mags are hard to insert fully loaded [ topped off ], I've never noticed as I was trained to slam the mag into the mag well and not be a wimp about it.

    My Glock 30 mags are the only ones Iíve ever had a problem with inserting. They are unbelievably tight. Far more than any other gun Iíve ever shot, but I still top them off.

    I'm comfortable with only 10 rounds in my Glock 30. Don't really care what anyone else does. If I wasn't okay with 10 rounds, I'd use G21 mags. If that weren't comfortable enough, I'd carry an 18-19 round 9mm, or one of those 32-round mags, or . . . well at some point a person's just got to stop worrying about the little things like a single, solitary extra round.

    My two G30's were the same way, but they functioned just fine topped off with a rd in the chamber. Far too many people baby the process of reloading mags, those are the people that notice a problem with one or another particular gun..
