How many Magazines do you have?

Hey guy's just had a question, On average how many magazines do you have for your pistols? I'm running at about 4 per except for the Walther P99 because those cost about 50 bucks a pop. Anywho was just curious?

anywhere from 3-8 depends on the gun.



I've also owned some of my pistols for more than 15 years.. so accumulating is more the operative term for me.. lol

I also chuck malfunctioning hardware very quickly.. I hate reaching in a bag and grabbing the "bad one"

There are only two quantities when it comes to ammo and mags. There is "Some" and there is "More". There is no such thing as "Enough".

For my carry pistols I have enough mags on my belt to carry at least a box of ammo, including what's in the firearm. For one pistol that's three mags and the other it's only two.

For my AR's, I can carry 6 mags and enough on strippers in a shoulder bag to reload a lot more times. No worse sound than a "click" and no more ammo.

6-8, except for the DE. I like shooting plates and "shoot and move" events that require 3-5 mags. If I didn't, I probably wouldn't own so many.

For my .22 I've got about 50% of the cost of the gun in mags :-/

My XD is my carry gun, I have 4 for that one, 5 for the Glock 22, and 2 for the Walther, then 20 or so for the AR, I would like to get a few more for each just to have a supply of them which isn't a problem seeing as the G22's only cost 18 for brand new, same for the XD, but the P99 is killer at 50 bucks a mag..

4 is plenty...when they're 30 round "Party Magazines", that's 120 shots before I have to use Beretta's optional "Club Mode"



5 17 round mags for backup so 9 total for the 92FS

6 20 round AR mags, around 15 30 rounders, 6 of which are always loaded.

5 25 round M&P22 mags, 2 10 rounders.

5 10 round 10/22 mags, 2 25 rounders.

Isn't that what you use when someone snatches the slide off the top of your pistol?

Don't believe the movies, if somebody gets that close to your weapon, you have already failed.

Extra mags just arrived today. Now I have the standard 11rd and two 15rd mags.



The 15rd mags are actually for a S&W 59xx series, which fit the Kel-Tec P11. Came with the grip extender for $35 per mag.

Fit the hand so much better:

I have one pistol, and one magazine for it. I have never seen any purpose in having more than one. If you're in a situation where you drain your mag and need another... well, you're probably already fucked.

I have added too many! Lets just say my chest rig carries 12 mags total (8 AR, 3 pistol, and 14 shotgun rounds). I know overkill, but you never know when those shady Chinese will invade.........

cheers

I have two for each of my Glocks, would like to have one or two more a piece. Definitely would like a full size mag for my Glock sub-compact but they're all ungodly expensive right now :(.

Only one cylinder for my revolver haha

Eight for the G-21 and maybe six for the 1911 (?) The 1911 ones are kind of distributed in various ammo boxes, holster rigs and so on.

Probably should have stocked up more Glocks before December but... was busy increasing the ammo supply.

Oh well. :-)
