    Minimum of two, but prefer 4 per pistol. I have lots of 1911 mags, but I have a few 1911s

    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.

    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.
