How many rounds do you carry?

I usually carry a G23. As most of you know, that gives me 13 +1 rounds of 40. I was just curious as to how many rounds/mags others feel comfortable carrying and why.

Thanks everyone!

There is a sticky in the upper portion of the main Carry Issues page, Topics Discussed Frequently & GT Rules - Read here first.

Go to Post 12. There are several previous threads on the topic. If you still have questions after reading them, come back and ask.

15 in the gun, sometimes 28 more on the hip, and always 34 in the truck. All Underwood 10MM.

G26 with 10+1. Almost always have a spare mag and all my mags outside of the G26's 10 rounder are G17 mags so another 16 rounds as I download my spares by 1 so they seat super easy (just in case I actually do wind up doing a speed reload with my life or others on the line - Sux but I'll sacrifice that 1 round in a high cap mag to make sure it goes right). 27rnds total.

My normal practice is whatever is in the pistol. There are times when I'll carry a spare magazine but since I lead a staid and routine lifestyle I don't like to carry more devices or paraphernalia than necessary.

The best reason I've seen for carrying a spare mag for normal self-defense scenarios is the malfunction factor. I rigorously test my pistol/ammo choices for reliability whenever I go to the range for this reason, putting the pistol/ammo through several rapid fire exercises.

I know this isn't an absolute guarantee that my chosen pistol/ammo won't malfunction but the successive tests that bear out reliability do provide a measure of confidence for someone with my staid lifestyle.

The best results I've found to date is to select a pistol with a solid reputation for quality/reliability and stick with a major American ammo manufacturer.

13+1 in the G23. I understand the possibility of malfunctions, but I shoot regularly, and trust what I carry. If I'm ever in a situation, and cant get it done in 14 rounds, doubt 27, or even 40 would help me much more...

Usually 10 in the g26 or 15 in the g19 depending on what I'm carrying that day. And a spare mag or two.

Twentyfive rounds total as a minimum.

I don't intend to die for lack of shooting back.

Sorry Clint.
