    I have a Kel-Tec sub 2000, Glock 17 and 26 that use the same mags. I have two 33rd, one 30rd and six 17 rd which work in all three guns. Four 10 rds for the G26 but when I carry it which is all the time, I keep a ten rd in it and carry two 17 rds with me. I have a 33rd in my SUV. I try to have four mags for all my gun for going to the range.

    Well, there's "American Rifleman," "Shooting Times." "Guns and Ammo", and my favorite, " Guns of the Old West". I count four.

    Well, I was about to buy a 6th Glock 34 mag, but I ran across that Galco Matrix holster on Friday afternoon, costing the same price. So, now I gotta wait. My goal is to have 6 for each gun. I have 6 fullsize USP mags already. 5 Glock mags, 4 HK USP compact mags, and 5 mags for my SW99.

    I only have 2 for my compact P99, but I can use the 5 fullsize SW99 mags in it, so I don't worry about it. Prev had a Glock 26 for 8 years, and I only had the 2 compact mags that whole time. SInce it also used fullsize mags, it never bothered me

    Yea, I know what ya mean.

    I sold a Glock 17 mag for $100 once during that ban, though.

    But yea, that is a concern.

    I try to keep 4-6 per gun but I only have 3 right now for the M&P. I ordered the Desantis M&P holster from S&W the other day. At $39.96 a pop for the mags I only got one for now, the holster was $64.95. The wife is allready pissed so I better slow down until next month.

    Echo! Echo!(I'm almost as paranoid)

    I have 12 10mm mags - 6 each(8rds), for the Delta and the Eclipse.
    And 14 .45 mags of various capacities for the XSE and the Commander.(10 and 8 rounders for competition - 7 rounders for carry)
    The G17 get only 5, 2- 17 rounders, and 2- 31 rounders, and 1- 10 rounder.
    All get rotated with full capacity for a month at a time for nightstand duty, then back to the safe for their turn at the range or competition.

    Things have changed since I first replied. The magic number seems to be 4 now.

    Now assuming the OP means magazines, ...

    4 for the officers (2 colt 6rd, 2 star 7 round)
    1 speedloader for the PT94
    and for the Vaquero/singlesix/ 1851 navys, well... you figure those out lol

    This is hilarious. A post that's just over 2 years old has resurfaced! Well, I might as well chime in.

    I've got:

    4, 13-round mags for my Sig
    10, 30-round mags for my AR (I'll get more if Obaba or Hillary get into office).
    The one 6-round mag that came with my P3AT.

    Most just two, Beretta 92 three currently but will get another my next order. My XD45 came with three. Might get a G18 mag for my G19 eventually. The ones I keep loaded for HD get rotated about every month or so, and they all get range use.

    AR - six or seven, I can't remember.

    At minimum 2, but that can vary with how much I shoot that particular gun.
