I carry one magazine in my rifle and 7 extra magazines in a tactical vest, for a total of 210 initial rounds.


.................I don't think that counts, does it?

With proper training, one might very well be able to perform one of those "Matrix" backflips as the bullets creep harmlessly by, but we're talking real gunfights here.
I carry at least 1 spare mag, 2 with the sub-compact.

14 in the gun, one 13 round magazine. If I need more than that, I'd better be thinking exit strategy.

...and to think this country was settled by men who carried single-shot pistols ! I find it enough of a chore to remember to strap on a gun and put on a jacket or long shirt to cover the holster . The chance I will need to reload is statistically slim, so I don't weigh myself down with extra magazines . I guess I like to live dangerously, venturing out with only 15 rounds to save me ( LOL) .

I will carry a spare mag if at all possible. If something has to be left behind, be it the spare mag, flashlight, or knife, that will depend on where I'm going and the time of day.

Well said sir.
I always carry two extra mags no matter what handgun i'm carrying. If i'm going out of town, I take my Kimber .45 and six extra 8 rounders fully charged and an extra sixty rounds just in case the SHTF while i'm on the beach and I have to navigate and possibly fight my way back through the ensuing chaos in order to get home.
