      This is hilarious. A post that's just over 2 years old has resurfaced! Well, I might as well chime in.

      I've got:

      4, 13-round mags for my Sig
      10, 30-round mags for my AR (I'll get more if Obaba or Hillary get into office).
      The one 6-round mag that came with my P3AT.

      Most just two, Beretta 92 three currently but will get another my next order. My XD45 came with three. Might get a G18 mag for my G19 eventually. The ones I keep loaded for HD get rotated about every month or so, and they all get range use.

      AR - six or seven, I can't remember.

      At minimum 2, but that can vary with how much I shoot that particular gun.

      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.

      Greetings everyone.
      I like to have at least 3 for each one.
      Take care

      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.
