Yo - I was wondering how many mags you would consider to be the 'right' number in a few different scenarios. I understand that opinions will vary greatly on this issue, so maybe try and support your answer with a 'why' to help keep it in context. I only have a G19 right now, and don't plan on getting any high capacity mags right away, but i'd love to hear about opinions on different mag capacities too. Currently I only have the 2 mags it came with, but high priority on my list is to get more, and I was hoping to solicit opinions on how many more I should get my hands on. Don't hesitate to post different calibers, mag capacities too, i'm sure the info will help others (and maybe me some day). And in that spirit, it would be nice if you could speak for what caliber/capacity you were talking about when you throw out an answer. 1 - So when you go to the range for the day, how many mags do you usually take with you? I think just having 2 is horrible. I spend more time reloading mags then shooting, and it seems like my whole range session is just reloading mags. I'd like to get a nice shoot in, maybe get into a rhythm, and then stop to reload mags after a while and contemplate that 'round' of shooting. I was hoping for some suggestions on what a good number to take with me is. (I am also the type of person that will pick different areas of the target to shoot clusters in, thereby increasing the usage of a single target, for general practice if that helps for any advice below). 2 - When you carry your firearm. How many mags do you usually take with you, in addition to the one that's already in the gun? (also for this one, do you keep them in your pocket, or prefer to have a holster/mag pouch for them, or maybe some other configuration?) 3 - If you keep any in your vehichle, how many and why? 4 - At home. I know you may have more mags then are loaded (though some would wonder why all the mags aren't loaded...) But how many do you usually keep loaded at home? - If less then all of them, why are some not loaded? I think it is good to keep one empty mag laying around the house for each caliber, personally. I just don't have enough to be able to do that yet! ( or other calibers yet for that matter, but this will be my practice as the collection grows). 5 - Add your own situation that I missed, if you can think of a circumstance that could work with this thread. I posted this in Tactics/Training, because I am primarily interested in the number of mags to go off to the range with, but it seems like a good idea to gather opinions on the other situations mentioned above too while i'm at it. Thanks in advance for all the info!
