extra mags
 
How many of you guys carry extra mags with you? And how many do you usually carry? I always carry one extar mag with me .

I carry two spare 7 round mags with my SIG GSR 1911. Just imagine during a crisis, emptying the mag in the gun, grabbing your ONE spare, and you have a mag failure.:eek: It might be different if I had a hi cap gun, but I don't.

I always carry one spare on my person and more in the glove box.

I a bad neighborhood, I add two more to the belt and a second pistol.

With proper practice and training, you shouldn't need more than one magazine. It's good to carry a spare though in case something gets jammed up in the 1st one.

Semi-auto, .45 acp, at least one mag, sometimes 2.
Revolver, 7 shot .357, at least one speed strip, or speed loader.
Revolver, 5 shot .38 spl., at least one speed strip or speed loader.

I never leave home without at least one reload. :cool:

+1

And for the XDSC, I carry an (2) extra mags - 16 rd'ers.;)
Saw the original posters handle - so I am assuming you have an XD?

As the rest have pointed out, it is always better to "have and not need, than to need and not have".

I always carry ( 2 ). Eight rounders for the full sized and Seven rounders for the 4.25"

No sense in having a gun run dry...

Extra mag carry?
 
Hello all

RON L here = SERE SURPLUS


Yes, I always carry an Extra Mag or two, Dependant on what weapons I carry? If I'm in the carry Mode with my ROCK ISLAND 1911A1 Clone Usually (2) 8 Round or Minumim (2) 7 RoUnd mags as well as the mag in the pistol! If I am carrying the M-95 Classic BHP Clone, I usually carry 1 mag in the Handgunand 1 extra apare thats all! I've not run dry the few times I ever had to use my sidearm and As this is usually a defensive deal, The handgun is usually to get time to get to the Shotgun, AK or other on gun? If on the street and way from my Home, yup, that's what I use and Have I have carried all over the world and it works for me, Your actual "Milage" might varry?
