I almost never carry an extra mag for my G36 EDC. If I go on a long trip or stay overnight somewhere, then I will take extra Mags. For a normal day like going shopping, visiting a friend or having lunch, then I just carry the G36 with no extra Mag. I will take my chances that this is enough if I have to defend myself. This is fine for me but for those that feel they need one or more mags or a second gun, I would not disagree with them.
