    Number of magazines per handgun that you have

    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.

    At least 4 each. Two loaded with self defence rounds, the other two for trips to the range.

    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.
    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.

    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+.

    The police of a state should never be stronger or better armed than the citizenry.
    An armed citizenry, willing to fight, is the foundation of civil freedom.

    I have been known to shoot conventional weapons on occasion,
    but I prefer the unconventional weapons more.

    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.
