Just curious, how many magazines do you have for each of your handguns and what is your criteria for determining how many to get?
I have 4 for my PT 809 and two for my PT 111G2. The 809 I have more for and am planning on getting another as it is the gun I compete with. The 111 I only have the two for it as it is my carry gun and even though I shoot it regularly carrying out concealed I haven't needed more.

About six for each of the 140s, five for the 24/7.
I'm in the 4 per gun camp. I have the most for my PT 1911, probably 12 8 rounders and a couple of 10 capacity. The least is four for my PT 738 and I have misplaced one of those...
When I carry, which is almost all the time, I have on in the gun and at least one extra on the hip. The additional magazines are primarily to have them loaded for the range sessions so I don't waste time stuffing magazines.
A good sign with a gun never stopped a bad guy with a gun.
I go with mostly two each. If they were free I'd have more. My AR is the exception. I think I have like 10 for that...and they are always full.

I try to keep a metric ton on hand. Guns I shoot frequently and have multiple copies of, like CZ 75, Beretta 92's and Beretta 84 and 85, 15 to 30 each. I often only get a half hour on the range When I go, I want to shoot, not load mags.
It varies depending on the gun and its intended usage.
From one to 30+.
None...for my revolvers. I have 3 for my Kel Tec and only carry one for a spare. I have 5 for my Ruger P85. I used to play IDPA games with it, but really, I had two spares for my P95, sold it and kept the mags which fit my newly acquired P85, so I sorta backed in to 'em. I have 3 for my P90 plus and extended 10 rounder which I have no idea why I bought. I only carry one spare when I carry the gun. See, I hit what I aim at. And, heck, I'm used to carrying 5 shot revolvers.
Let's see, I have only one for my Ruger Mk 2, 2 for my Ruger SR22, 2 for my Grendel P12, 3 for my Radom P64, one for my Charter Arms Explorer pistol, 4 for my Phoenix Arms HP22 cause I got 2 for free when I sent the busted slide back to 'em and one I got with the extended 5"barrel.
I've got several other pistols that don't deserve a mention. Actually, the PA HP22 doesn't deserve much, but at least it works for the time being.
I carry speeds strips for the revolvers.
