    As recent events have prompted us to start buying more ammo, how many have bought extra mags per gun? I have had up to 6 per, but does it make sense to have a few more if you are stocking more ammo for said gun/s?

    On pay day, I`m devoting a large chunk of funds to ammo/extra mags/G27 and 9mm conversion barrels for my G33. Whenever wal-mart has a good price going on value packs I`m going to stock up on each caliber. It just makes sense considering sometimes I can`t find any of either on certain days.

    If I have fewer than 5 mags per gun I end up with moderate to severe diarrhea.

    I keep 5 or more mags per gun.

    G26 = 11 mags (2-26, 2-17, 7-19)
    G21 = 8 mags
    G22 = 17 mags

    I shoot a competition that requires 8 mags, so figured I ought to have at least that for each gun.

    I never feel I have enough ammunition or magazines. Am I alone in feeling this way?

    I agree. I remember when the assault weapons ban went into affect and me kinking myself for not buying more mags! I vowed that I wouldn't ever let that happen again. I buy as many mags as I can get whenever I have extra cash to do so. Worse comes to worse, I can always sell them later if I end up with too many. That is if one can ever have to many magazines!

    7 for my G30, looking to make it 10.
    Going to pick up a G21 also, probably get 10 for that as well.

    Get as many as you want, just make sure you have tested the mags you will use for carry for SD. For new mags, I don't feel right unless I put 50 to 100 rounds through it, and if I add a mag extension, back to the 50 to 100 -- with no glitches. Older mags or used mags get relegated to the range.

    AK=8 30 rd mags
    G19=6 15 rd, 2 17 rd, 1 33 rd
    Sig P6=7 8 rd factory mags
    Sig 220=6 8 rd mags, 2 10 rd mags

    I've also got a G21 mag and 2 10 rd G30 mags already, b/c I plan to get a G30 later this year. Then I've got two CZ 9mm compact 14 rders, b/c I had been planning to get a CZ PCR, but have since decided not to, so they are for sale in the classifieds.

    I'm sure I'll snag a few more AK mags at a gun show or something, and will always add more Glock mags as I go, one here, one there. But I'm pretty satisfied right now.

    If a person asked you "why so many magazines?" what is the rational answer?

    (I have recently started my own little collection)
