    Always try to keep 4~5 mags for each.
    One in the gun and another on the holster with two (2~3) more near by.

    Handguns: 2 or 3 so I can rotate the kept-loaded one among them periodically. AK's/AR's: 15 or 20. Yea, a few.

    Six for each of my .40's. I'd like to pick up another 6 for each so I don't have to reload as often at the range.

    I have 8 for my M&P's. Of course 2 of those will only fit my compact. The other 6 are 15 round mags since it will fit both my compact and full sized .40/.357. I am buying some of the bigger mags (9mm for the M&P) for my wife for when she is at home.

    For my 22LR rifle - 3.
    for my mark 1 - 3
    for my XDm9 - 3

    As I get into competition I may get more for the XD just to make life easier. I'd like to have one loaded for home protection that I can just leave alone rather than unload for trips to the range and reload when home.

    Hmmm....my XDm9 mags hold 19 each...it came with 3...that's 57 plus one in the pipe...

    Since I have multiple 1911s they share numerous mags, normally having 4-5 with each plus spares. My .40s have 3-4 each. My 'old school' revolvers have a couple speed loaders & 3-4 strips a piece.

    I have 4 to 6 for each gun. The price of some of them at $19. for factory, I can not go wrong. I use them all when I shoot so it spreads out the usage and they last longer this way.

    Need at least 3 for IDPA matches, plus a spare in case a spring goes weak.

    I have 3 for my cz.Two for daily carry and one empty to rotate the other 2 every month to keep fromhaving spring failure.I use them as range mags so I can find any potential problem early.

    My formula is simple, it is based on a box of 50 rounds. I have enough magazines (per caliber) to empty one box. For those who are good in math (not me), the number won't add up exactly, but this isn't an exact science! For my .45 I have four 8 round mags and three 7 round mags for a total of 53. So one mag will be short. For my 9mm I have 6 mags of 9 rounds for a total of 54, so again one mag is short. With my 22's the math is easier because they use 10 round mags!

    This then becomes a "set", so with each set now I know how many I shot and how much I'm spending. Ironically, I'm not usually that organized.

    I like the same formula... but I want to load up 200 rounds... That way I needn't reload the entire range trip

    The longer I own a semi auto the more magazines I wind up having for that gun. I have had my Beretta 92 fs longer than my other semi autos and it has 10 magazines. For me, they just accumulate.

    3 mags for my SR22 and 2 for my 92fs, but I'm just getting started in this. I expect I'll have 3 for my Shield, 2 8 round and 1 7 round. I'll carry with the 7 and keep the pair of 8's in my pocket or wherever.

    I have 10 HK's and I have at least 6 mags for each. And 4 mags each for the caracals. And my glocks sit in the safe because I'm just not that into em anymore.
