    Most of the time, 1, sometimes 1.
    Definitely situational.
    But I would rather have more than enough than not enough.
    Or as someone said, in case the one in the gun malfunctions.
    I carry either a full size 1911 (8+1) or a XD service model (4 inch) 16 +1

    For church I always carry a spare mag in case of a church shooter

    A quick run to grab pizza, no spare.

    Running errands all day, most likely a spare

    My EDC is a Hellcat RDP with 15 + 1 rounds, most of the time that's all I have on me but keep a few spare mags in the vehicle. If it's around holiday seasons, special events or bigger spaces I'll typically put an extra 15 round magazine in my pocket.

    I remember that same thought when the Marines revamped their martial arts instruction

    I was thinking... I drive a vehicle that has a main big gun, two 7.62 machine guns, and is armored. I have an M16 next to me and an infantry squad in the back to defend the vehicle..... if I am ever using that hand to hand ninja training in combat many many many things have gone very wrong already.

    If there's anything that every single Zombie movie taught us, the military is inept and will always fall to the hordes of walkers. Meanwhile a rag tag group of ordinary people will survive.

    That is because "center mass" the military teaches doesn't work on zombies.

    Rag tag civilians learned everything from movies that promote head shots.

    The more you know....

    One extra mag. These folks that need a backup gun, 47 mags, a backup gun for the backup gun, etc should probably just stay home

    Philly? +2 mags, spare BUG, and more in my backpack.

    To each their own. I carry as much as I can effectively. If I could hide an AR or MP5, I'd carry that!

    Funny your post follows mine. That's close to my primary carry which is a HK P2000 9MM V1 LEM. 13 round mags when I need the smaller size, and I do the "new" 17 round with an X-Grip plus 2x17 spare when I can afford the extra room needed. I have a P2000SK as well if I need to go smaller.

    If you like the P2000SK, I bet you'd love the P2000...

    Full size? Sounds heavy.
