So 3 firearms all 45 acp

1 right hip with 2 spares on left hip

1 small of back and a 1 mag pouch built in to the holster

Miami Classic under left arm with 2 mag pouch on right upper side under arm

 

So 5 spares with 3 in the guns

8 total on my person...............1 45 acp tucked away in the hidden glove box in the MINI with 2 extras.

 

11 X 8 = 88 plus 4 in the chamber/92

I wouldn't have guessed the Mini could handle all that weight!

How many clowns will pile out of the MINI and do they have spare magazines?

 

Just to give my answer, no extra magazine for the M&P9 M2.0 and a 686 Plus snubbie in an ankle holster.

I do have a extra mag in the car along with a speed loader for the 686 Plus just in case.

It is no skin off my nose but I have to ask..... why not carry an extra magazine on your person but keep one in your car?  What good is an extra mag going to do you if you are a block away and need the extra mag right now ?

 

I carry at least one extra mag not because I fear getting into an O K corral type shooting but because of a jam or mag failure.

That M&P9 M2.0 has digested EVERY round throw at it.

I have run more then a 1000 rounds through it and not one hiccup.

200 rounds of my carry ammo. The 686+ is self explanatory.

Ran 21 of my carry ammo including 7 from the lot that I have in it.

I feel confident in 23 rounds. The 686+ is my backup.

I group pretty tightly at 100 feet or less with the M&P.

I've tried to make it fail but it never has. If it did a couple from

the 686+ should get me back to my car and I might just drive off if able.

Then I would call 911. Your CCW is not for having having wild shootouts

in the street, It's for self defense and protecting your life.

I’ve been pocket carrying my trust P938 this week. I have a little nylon belt pouch from some ancient tiny MP3 recorder that nicely holds two spare 7 round magazines. I’ve been keeping that in the car... but it could easily go on the belt. Or the right side pocket. Thinking it would work for the smaller lighter P238 Legion that I have not yet fired. Though I have never carried in a pocket before (Nemesis with a small notebook in front to even out the lines and make it look like it isn’t a gun), it sure is easier to garden with than a High Power Detective!

I carry at least one extra mag not because I fear getting into an O K corral type shooting but because of a jam or mag failure. 

 

1. The chances of needed an extra mag in a self defense shooting FOR ME (for where I go) is slim to none.   If I'm going someplace fairly sketchy I might add it (visiting family on the southside or going downtown)....  but the Costco and new Aldi in Naperville during lunchtime is "one mag" territory. 

2. I find mag malfunction unrealistic.  If I'm ever in a situation where I need to pull my gun out AND squeeze the trigger, but it does not go bang....I'm already in a world of hurt.  If a round is already chambered, there is no reason why my Shield will not fire the first round because of the mag.  If I need a 2nd round, and it jams...how much time will it take to clear the jam, try again, and then figure out that it is the mag?  I don't think the bad guy is going to stand there while I sort out my problems.

I understand your explanation, but all I really see is myself before I got any training on defensive use of a firearm. Spend a few dozen hours doing drills with dummy rounds mixed into your magazines or shoot enough cheap factory ammo and you develop an appreciation for having a spare loaded magazine and learn to get off the X.
I didn't take defensive use very seriously prior to carry, but I saw it as a responsibility I owed myself and my wife (and society overall) to seek out advanced training so I could be effective should Naperville or a nearby community suddenly surprise me with violence uncharacteristic. Give it some thought. The reason you carry at all, even in a safe neighborhood, is "what if" based preparedness. An extra magazine is just a more developed scope of "what if".

If my appendix rig doesn’t have it in combo with the holster I use a neomag in my pocket. I always have a spare mag Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
