Depends on what you are doing. Hunting 5 is a good number. I carry 2 spar mags with my .380 every ware I go. As far as a shtf situation any extra space I have or wait I can carry is going to be used for ammo.

1 spare mag at a minimum, usually 2-3 or 2 speed loaders for the wheel gun. Always a BUG.

I don't carry a spare mag. In the case of a mag malfunction I believe I'll be better off by having a back-up pistol. Deciding what pistol & where/how to carry it is what I'm working on now.

Whatever the gun holds. I would never go below the five rounds in my J-frame. I know a guy that carries a two shot derringer. Not for me.

More for I'm out got to reload than a mag malfunction. But when carrying 2 pistols I find it easy to put the smaller one on my ankle. And the other under my arm or the small of the back or even in the front. There is a company that makes inside the waist clips for a number of revolvers, glocks ..... No holster just attach it to your gun and put it inside your waist band. More low profile than an in waist holster and more comfortable to unless it is going to be on ur hip.
