I recently read an article in Guns magazine titled “Do Civilians need spare ammo”? In witch prompted me to as our forum the same question. Do you feel the need to have an extra mag/speed loader? Or will the 5, 6, 8 or 10 rounds (whatever the case may be) serve the purpose of protection? I am of the belief that a spare magazine is warranted. With the recent events that took place in the internet lounge (we have all seen by now). If I counted correctly the gentleman had one or two rounds left, what if….the hood wearing punks would have come back? Or as most of us may or may not know there are circumstances that may “lessen” the effects of shots on target so to carry extra magazines /speed loaders or not to?
