Wondering how many people out there keep all spare magazines of their various guns loaded with ammo even when stored. I'm not talking about your carry gun, or home defense guns which all of us do. I am talking about spares outside of what you actually need.

No, I don't. I keep ammo handy for my carry and HD weapons, and the rest of the ammo stays in its packaging in a cool, dry, secure location away from the rest of my firearms.

Two each for my carry pistols, the shotgun tube, and a couple of 20 rounders for the AR.

Wow, I've got A LOT of mags for my guns. I don't think (at least I hope) that I'll need them all loaded at the same time. I do keep 2-3 loaded for some of my guns at any given time though.

No, only four for each of my (2) EDC's...:icon_neutral:
Inside my safe I have various other firearms in a rack with 2 mags loaded for several of them.

All four mags for my M&P are loaded. I carry two and two stay at home, but it doesn't wear on them, so might as well keep em ready to rock if needed.

Only the ones I need. That is
2 extra for my belt.
2 extra in shoulder rig so I dont have to put them in & take them out.

I could not afford the PD ammo to load all my extra mags.

All together I have about 50 or so. Some are still in the unopened packages. I'm waiting for two to come in the mail this week.

I've never gotten over the Brady Bill

I've gotten over the Brady bill, I'm just not quite prepared enough for the second version.:rolleyes: I have lots of magazines for my semi autos, and lots of Garand clips too. The majority aren't loaded but for the ARs, AK and Uzi I do keep a set of pouches or a bandolier of loaded mags to grab and go. Maybe 20 or 30 loaded mags and an ammo can full of clips. I don't think I will ever need them but if I had to grab and go evacuate for a hurricane or something I have them. The rest are stored waiting to be the kid's college fund or something.

If I have enough ammo to fill all my mags, then I do.

Nope, I only keep 3 full mags (1 in my weapon and 2 in an ammo pouch) ready to go for my duty weapon at all times. My other weapons and mags are empty.

For my G23C I have 4 mags loaded with PD, 2 on each floor of the house and 1 in the gun with PD at all times. I have 6 mags loaded with FMJ for the range so all I have to do is grab my bag and go. So total I have 11 mags loaded with either PD or FMJ.
