    I like to keep 3 for each. I have 3 for my Beretta 92A1, 3 for my Remington R1 1911, and only 2 for my S&W M&P 9c for now, will be ordering another soon. my other 2 handguns are a revolver, and a .22 MP5 clone.

    How many mags do you keep for each gun?

    At present - 4 each weapon - adding more as I find good deal.

    That depends on how many come with the gun. Usually 2.

    Way too many.

    It's an obsession and I can't help myself.

    For many, many years, I'd pick up mags for AR-15's. Either at gun shows, gun shops, or here and there.

    For the most part, I bought COLT mags, both 20 /30 rd. They were cheap, plentiful, and available. At one time, I was beginning to get concerned because I had so many on hand.

    But lately, I've been selling them as if they were gold. I've made all my money back 3-4 times over. And, I still have about 100 left. Gonna sit on them a while to see what happens in the future.

    The thing about magazines is while it is possible not have enough, it is not possible to have too many.

    That's what I used to think.

    I've been selling some off as of late, and I can barely keep up with what goes to whom.

    I'm aiming for what I believe will suits my needs at the moment, Star BM 9mm five (5), 8rd mags, one in the pistol four (4) for belt mag carriers. It will be the same for my wife's Astra Constable II .380, in fact two mags arrived in today's mail for that. The minimum I would think would be three (3) mags and one must take intended use, magazine availability and rising costs caused by today's anti-2nd Amendent hysteria when making the determination.

    4 - 5 for each defense handgun, plus standard mags will work in sub-compacts, and if needed, the extended mags for sub-compact can slip the sleeve off and use in the service model.

    2 for each plinker handgun.

    I keep 2 for the BHP. And will be getting another one for the Sig. Which will make 2 for both SA's. The other two handguns are revolvers. They stay loaded and have never had a day off. I have learned to love my Sig Skeeter. I keep at least one mag loaded with very nicely crafted 9m hollow points. I rack them through every once in a while just to keep the 70 year old man in working order. I shoot it bout once a month just to keep it on its toes. Man them hollow points do make a jagged hole. I keep them completely for self defense.

    I have 2 mags for my new Citadel 1911 45 acp (they came with it). . .but I need HELP, in that I can't seem to find anymore mags to purchase for this gun.

    Do other mags work in this gun? Being a newbie to this, I have no idea and could use some guidance. I am under the impression that all 1911 45 acp mags are okay to use in it, but don't want to spend the cash to buy more mags until I know for sure.

    Any help will be appreciated,

    Thanks!

    I have several Colts as well as a Sig 220. I keep several colt mags around the house and more in the safe. All loaded with 5 rounds so as not to weaken the springs. I still have 7 Packmyer mags, wish they still made them.

    I thought we were just talking about handgun mags on my first post, so he goes, AR 15 = 37 30RD 12 = 20 RD, AK 33 = 30RD 1 75RD DRUM 5 = 5RD, SKS = TONS OF LOADED STRIPPER CLIPS, GARAND = AMMO CANS OF 8 ROUND CLIPS, M1 CARBINE = 5 = 30 RD 6 = 20 RD, MAUSERS - 8mm = BANDOLEERS OF 5RD STRIPPER CLIPS, VARIOUS 22's PLENTY OF 5-10 RD MAGS AND SOME HI-CAP MAGS FOR 10-22 INCLUDING 1 50 RD DRUM along with plenty of ammo for all. Been saving up ammo for my retirement, with these high prices and shortages I'm glad I did.
