    I keep a mag storage pouch that holds four (4) mags and one mag in the pistol...that makes a total of 5 mags for each of the pistols I currently own..that's for heading to the range...for concealed carry, I only have the mag in the pistol unless I carry a one mag holster in addition to my concealment holster...later...from the bluegrassstate..

    Most of the handguns I've purchase that require mags. I find it a must to have at least 4, I'd prefer to have more. But that's my rule. And if I do nab a shooter with any less, I allow it into the budget of the gun to accommodate. However, I do have one with 8 mags, one with 6. The remainder I have 4 for each.

    Seems like I can blow a lot more money when I'm at the range that way.

    Trust me you want to keep at least six (6) good mags for each gun.

    At least 6 for each handgun. More for Rifles. Mouse guns don't count for the rule to me. 2-3 is enough for me on the .380 and below.

    I think at least 10 mags, two for the car, two under the coach, two underneath the bed, two in the range bag, and two in the kitchen. This is what I do...working at a gun shop is not healthy...for your mind or soul.

    Minimum of 2 per gun. Hoping for the extended mag for the Taurus Slim, if not then just a few more 7's

    I like to keep enough mags to hold approx 50 rounds (or a full box of ammo). If it's 6 count, I have 8 mags (48). If it's 8 count (1911) I have 6 mags (48). If it's 13 rounds, I have 4 mags, etc. It makes range trips easier and I always have all my mags loaded after a range trip so it works out nice there as well.

    Got two with my Glock 19 and just ordered two more last week from Midway USA. Got Glock factory mags for less than $24 per mag.

    I try to get at least three 100% trustworthy ones. Sometimes, I've had a couple that needed tweaking, like the follower has flash on it, or the mag has crud in it, and I've bought a couple before fixing them, so I wind up with a half dozen or more. I went to a gunshop that was closing up and the owner had factory mags for the Astra A-75, and I grabbed all six he had for $7.95 a pop, and now I have at least a dozen. Not so many when I had two A-75's, but now that I only have one, it's kind of ridiculous. I'll keep them, as I'm sure I'll get another one one of these days.

    I have an M&P .40 cal that came with 2 mags. I ordered 4 more in .40 S&W/.357 and 2 for my 9mm conversion barrel. So, 8 mags in all with .357 Sig and 9mm conversion barrels all for the same gun.
