Single stack match?

My 2 nephews and i are going this weekend to there first ipsc match, one is useing my springfield the other is using his own and i am useing my kimber. My question is how many mags do we need to complete a stage and do we have to have 8 rd mags? I have 5 8rd mag and 6 7rd mag so we will have to share. I just want to figure out the best way to load and carry for the match.

Thanks Nick
G17,G21, G20sf. Many more to come.

I assume this is a club level match. If that is the case they can pretty much do what they want as far as round count on a stage. At my club matches we hardly ever exceed 36 rounds in a stage. This does not account for misses or extra shots obviously. If there is steel on the stage with a new shooter you might want to tell them to fire a few and move on if you don't knock it down. Ecspecially their first run in with a Texas Star. You don't want to drop four mags on it then not have enough rounds for the paper.

For USPSA you can mix mags fine as long as they don't exceed the max number of rounds which none of yours do. Make sure they split you up in the shooting order for your squad so you can reload the shared mags.
