      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.

      I like to keep at least 5 on hand per. One in and 2 pairs of reloads. I'm not there with all of mine and have more than 5 for a couple of the ones I've had the longest. 5 is my magic number.

      As someone living in Canada I have to wonder what the hell happens in the states that some of you guys need to CARRY around 3 mags with you

      For the pistols I keep about 3-4, would like more though. I think I keep about the same for the rifles but I plan on getting some more before I won't be able to anymore.

      I have 2. I have a P6, and that was my limit when I bought it. I tried to get a third, but the company I bought it from wouldn't let me.

      I have a G17 and a G26. The 26 came with two 10 rd., I have six 17rd that will function in either weapon. Ten 35-rd for my Galil 5.56, and about twelve 30rd for the (2) 7.62X39 AK's. Does anyone know if the same mags will load and feed the 5.45X39, if I were to decide another AK is in order?

      Typically 6 for pistols and 12 for rifles. Most I have more then this because of multiple copies.
