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

I got rid of 14 PMAGS and 10 USGI mags with Magpul followers and Ranger plates, to young Soldiers of mine who made Sergeant and did great things.
I need to stock back up!

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.

I' keep at least three for ol' trusty (.45 govt model) and for my new S&W MP .357 sig/.40S&W !!!

Absolute min of 5, I prefer 6.
My aim is to have 10 or more per handgun.

I wasnt sure what you meant.Spare mags on your person? Total number? I put down 6 in the poll.I have 1 in the 1911 when im carrying and 2 spare on my side.Also have 3 other mags i keep in the safe for it.
Have 3 altogether for my AR15.

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.

3 for the Kahr pm9 ..
3 for the Sig p238 ..
And 8 for the kimber pro raptor 1911..
..can you tell what my favorite is ???
02-07-2012, 11:31 AM
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.
02-07-2012, 11:33 AM
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.
