    Never thought I'd need more than the 3 13-round mags for my XD... but then, considering the forthcoming election... I might a get a few more.

    How many mags?

    If it's a gun I like a lot, a gun I shoot a lot, a gun that I expect I'm going to keep for the long haul, then I make sure I have plenty of mags. Mags are expendable items; they will wear-out with normal use, and your pistol's reliability is only as good as the mags you use to feed it. I stick to factory mags whenever possible, and have rarely been disappointed. I will buy good used factory mags at gunshows, pawn shops, etc. to save money, but I only buy mags in very good to excellent condition.

    Plus, when you live in a cold climate and shoot outdoors year-round, it's nice to have plenty of mags pre-loaded so you don't have to fumble around and/or freeze your fingers once you hit that frosty firing line.

    I have 13-15 mags for the 1911. I use most of them when training. Shooting a 7 round gun in a class of hi-cap users is very “active”. You never know when the instructor is going to take you from draw, shoot two rounds and holster to Shouting HEAD or LEFT (to indicate another opponent).
    I have to change mags every 4 rounds. The high cap crowd sneers at you when you shoot to slide lock.

    I've got 6 for my XD9, and 2 for the P22. I'd get more for the P22, but they're running around $30+shipping right now. A bit too much for me...otherwise I'd have 4 with the pinky rest.

    I have 3 for my Buckmark, 3-10 rnd & 1-8 rnd for my C9 & 3 for my 995 Carbine.
    I like to have at least 3 for each gun but I'll probably get a couple more.
    I don't see much point in having too many for each gun right now. My guns aren't Hi-Cap so I'm not worried about any kind of ban.

    Just bought 2 more (factory mags only) so now I have 6 total for my P-01. My goal is to have 10 mags on hand but at $30 a piece it's a slow process.

    didnt expect those results.

    ive lost count,but i consider 15-20 for each a good start...i slow down once i have that(but dont stop).

    if theres a ban...i want enough for me,my kids,and any grandkids that may come along.

    ...i'll never stop buying mags,even when ive got enough to last forever,i'll buy more in hopes of making a profit down the road(price increases and/or another ban with "grandfather clause" etc).

    If the army has taught me any thing it is to keep everything clean to include mags as well as rotating them out as not to wear the springs in them out. Please also remember to check them on a schedule to know they work. If the spring is bad there are sites out there who sell replacement springs cheeper then buying a new mag. But just my 2 cents.

    Well i like to have atleast atleast 3 if its a carrry gun . I hate the thought of being killed for a lack of shooting back. reality is if you do have to pull it you are not likely to fire over 10 rounds max . an if you do you are probably not going to live to tell about it . Now if its a range gun then i always try to have 4-5 it just seems to work better for me (less time loading). Then when you go to sell it i always hold back the spares that did not come with the gun an offer then to the buyer at a fair price :

    Beretta 92FS = 5 15rnd mags (got the holster mike thanks!)
    XD-40 = 5 12rnd mags
    All factory mags, I used to do after markets but stopped after one screwed up my S&W 915.

    I only carry one spare mag now though, I used to be all gung ho when I got my CCL for the first time and carried all four spare mags, however I think I've leveled out now and carry one spare with one in the gun + knife + 3oz OC spray on my key ring, or my "pen" OC spray which works well with a suit.

    I've only got 2 at the moment. Going to pick up a couple more soon. Thinking of doing some IDPA when I get a bit more consistent.
