Do you prefer 3,4 or 5 mags for your pistols?

Well, you might have gotten out of the situation with 15-30 rounds but you might have had to leave a magazine or two in an area where they can't be retreived. If you can't replace them you are now down to 15 rounds the next time......might be a good idea to have plenty of spares.
Oh, I thought we were just talking about how many we carry on our person.

Rich boys.
You probably buy store ammo also.
I have 1 magazine for each of my guns.

If I need more ammo I will put it in my pocket rolled up in a paper towel.
That is just when I go out in the woods hunting.

I may be odd duck out because I do not carry.
I have been shot at as a kid and had 3 hooligans point their pistols in my face when I was about 11.
Asked me if I was ready to die. I told them NOPE I have a lot more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I need to eat.

That was in Moore OK. Both times.

I should want to carry but I do not.

For me, ideal is however many vehicles you own plus 3.

One in each vehicle = 2
One in the pistol = 1
Two to carry = 2

So, for me, 5 is the ideal number to have. I also rotate out the ammo that stays in the vehicle --- especially in the summer.


:anyone:

Good explanation


ha!

I try to have 3-4 minimum for things like my P365 EDC, 6+ for crossovers like my P229 and 10+ for SHTF/TEOTWAWKI gear like my P226. The 226 mags work in the 229 so I figure it makes sense to have more of those. I leave a spare P226 mag in my nightstand/gunvault and a couple in the truck so I can take my P229 or P226 and still be covered. Other than "lots" I don't know the correct answer.

Good explanation, same thing applies to glock

I only have 35 magazines for my Glock 19. I either need another Glock 19 or another magazine.

get a few G17 mags

Nice try ATF...

No that would be more like "Hey guys, how many mags do you have for your AR's?" LOL

I have a bunch of glocks and a bunch of mags too. I can use the bigger mags in all my pistols. Then I have several for my G26. The more I can get the better. That goes for this and ammo too.
