I carry one extra for every gun i carry, unless i'm carrying both handguns at one. In that case only one extra for my 945 and my P-64 gets to be my BUG. Don't really need another mag for that if i get down to the 9mm, i need to make a speedy retreat.

Don't always carry a spare mag on my person, but when I do, it's a 10 rounder in the left rear pocket.

Today I started carrying a second mag, you guys are right about it being better to have and not need then to wish you had another if you do need it.

WOW! Do you all live in Detroit? Most of the time my only carry weapon is a Double D with 2 rounds of buckshot. If I am going some place scarry I'll pack one of my .45s. Spare Mags or ammo, it's in my saddle bags or in the cage somewhere. Although I recently bought a sholder rig that carrys 2 spare mags on the off side, I tried this with the spare mags and it did help ballance the rig out but I still don't like the sholder rig unless I'm wearing a jacket.

When I packed a 1911, I would carry two extra 8rd mags in a 2 mag pouch on my off side. Now that I carry a wheel gun, two speedloaders in my left pocket.

To the average non gun carrying person, I could see how it looks as though we are carrying a lot of ammo. My contention is that if the SHTF ever happens, I want to be prepared. I am sure you all feel the same.

I mostly carry my CCW pistol of the day with no spare ammo. Sometimes one spare mag. ALWAYS one round in the pipe.

There is no 'wrong' answer to this question just as there is no single 'right' for everyone. Carry whatever makes you comfortable and doesn't drag yer pants around yer ankles.

On duty a "minimum" of 3, off duty a "minimum" of 2; one in the gun and the rest in belt mounted magazine pouches.

Two extra mags for the PT1911, so 25 rds total. Found a cheap dual carrier in a guy's "junk" bin at a show last year for $5, and although it probably wasn't made for mags it works perfectly. A lot of generic folding knife sheaths can be had for cheap at shows as well, and they can work also.

When I used to carry a single mag in my pocket, I cut up an old piece of denim, wrapped it around the mag (about 3/4 length), and sewed it along the side. Sort of like a magazine condom; just something to keep the dust out.
