My wife took me shooting today. As I was gathering stuff up to go, it surprised me how many different mags I have. I'm going to count them and if the damn camera will work one more time I'll take a pic of the pile.

How many do YOU have?

Why do you guys have so many magazines per gun? I have three for my XD9 and two for my XD45. One of each magazine stays loaded with home defense ammo. At the range, I bring two for my XD9 and one for my XD45. The gun gets too hot if I shoot magazine after magazine. The time I spend loading magazines gives the gun a bit of time to cool off.

I've never really had heat issues w/ my guns before (I just don't touch the muzzle area or front of the slide - which I don't really do anyway, so I don't really notice the heat).

I like to have at least 6 mags per gun. It's nice to show up at the range w/ all of them already loaded - maybe around 100 rounds. So, I only have to reload 1x (all of them) again. It's nice.

Plus, having lived thru those years where mags over 10 rounds were going for high dollar values (I sold a 17 round glock mag for $100 - and I kept the other one I had) - I wanna have enough in case that ever happens again.

As I approach 200 rounds at the range, even the trigger gets hot too. Hot enough to where I find myself just barely touching it while focusing on my sight picture. That's hot. :)

If I had 10 loaded magazines laid out in front of me and I just shot mag after mag, the gun would be smoking!

Is that w/ an XD?

I've never had that problem before on any of my guns. Strange... I shoot 200 rounds max thru a gun, usually.

I crank thru those suckers :p

Yes, XD9 and XD45. I'll usually shoot 10 rounds per magazine, two magazines back to back. Maybe 1-3 seconds between shots. Then I'll load both magazines using a speed loader. So I'm usually shooting another two magazines in about a minute or two. If I keep that pace for 200 rounds, the slide gets too hot to touch and the trigger gets pretty warm too. If I alternate between my 9 and my 45, there's more time to cool off between salvos, which goes back to me not needing 10 loaded magazines in front of me.
