I vote no.

We all gotta die sometime, and I feel

it would be too much ag hauling around

extra mags. Practicality becomes the issue.


IMO, if I can't get it done with what's

in the gun, at least it was a nice try.

Think about it, light, knife, gun, etc,etc,etc,

where does it all end? Hand grenades?

You could never carry enough ammo or weapons to be prepared for every possible situation that life "could" throw at you.

I understand what you are saying. 90% of the time I carry a pocket gun without a reload. But at church, I carry a 1911 with a reload. Church shootings have been a serious issue for a few years now.

Agree- many could replace the paranoia they carry around with a few xtra mags tho

I always plan for my next PD incident. That way I will have one more round than needed.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

You should also carry a big canteen first aid kit and 3 days worth of MREs. You just never know.

Damn good point. The crime rate should be down. There is a 100 BGs a day killed around here.

Since Aurora I carry an extra 13 round mag although I think if i even have to use all 13 rounds in the gun already
then I am in some really deep doo doo! I wear cargo pants so no huge deal anyway.
