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. It might be different if I had a hi cap gun, but I don't.

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.

+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...

Default 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?
