    I have at least two for each handgun, but a few of them can be interchanged with different models.

    Wow, didn't really expect to hear such high numbers on handguns, expected it on the ARs and maybe the 1911s. The cost is a factor certainly.... At $30 bucks or more per mag its a consideration. If they were $5 or $10 I would get more easily.
    I have actually considered trying to find an 809 compact so I could use the same mags and selling the 111G2. I like redundancy and simplicity and using the same mags and possibly swapping parts would help that.

    I only have 5 for my new AR and only the one in the gun is loaded. Oh, I have a 10 rounder for hunting and shooting off the bench.

    I generally have 2-4 spare mags per gun, depending on how many I think I need.

    Don't ask me about my AR. I'd have to go count them, and I probably wouldn't disclose anyway.

    Interesting responses! Here, in MD, when you transport your firearm to the range, the mags must be unloaded. Yep, you have to wait until you get to the range to load your mags!

    For me, I think 6 mags is an optimum number because in MD the max mag capacity is 10 and if you have 6 you have a backup in case one of the 5 it takes to load up a box of 50 rounds goes south!

    Yep, I didn't even go into AR territory. I have a mix of 30 and 20 round P-Mags, love the 20 rounders for the added clearance to the bench and a few metal 30 round capacity. Still have to dedicate the ones for 300 AAC and paint/label them to absolutely preclude major screwups. Pretty certain that I wouldn't confuse them, but if I am shooting with someone else it will serve to remind me to educate them.

    It is difficult to gain the truth from the media in this age. It is a huge puzzle with small pieces. In order to solve it, one must have perseverance, all of the pieces, imagination, time, and most of all...the desire to put the picture together. Our real trouble is that there are far too few people today with the desire to do this.

    Dang Sekol, thats a bunch of crap.....I guess I didn't realize that Maryland was so repressive. You're welcome to move down to God's Country anytime you and the hubby want to.

    Three is my minimum for bottomfeeders. One in the gun, one for a spare, one to rotate with. The current max is a dozen or so.

    Speed loaders for the wheelguns is a horse of a different color. They are simple, cheap, last forever and don't take up a lot of room. If you have a wheel gun, there's no such thing as too many speed loaders.

    The minimum is 2- I buy 2 for every wheelgun I get when I get it. But, since many guns share a common size speed loader, I ended up having 6 or 8 that will work with a particular gun even if they weren't bought specifically for it. Colt D frames will take Smith K and L frame speed loaders and vice versa (as will Dan Wesson .357's) and 44 and 45 Colt N-frames will work off the same ones, too, (same rim diameters).

    The most I have of one particular model speed loader is 15 for my primary carry and the truck gun- 4 (2 carry loads, 1 cast lead reloads, 1 snake shot) in the truck, 4 (all carry loads) on the belt I keep handy for the rare times when I feel the necessity to OC around the house, with 4 are scattered around the house 'handy' (3 carry loads, 1 snake shot) and 3 for concealed carry.
