    Out of pure curiosity, whether OC or CC, how muchspare ammo do you carry? Where / howdo you carry it? Belt, ankle, glove-box, etc.? If it's on your belt or ankle, what kind of sheath or holster do you use? Thanks for the info.

    I usually carry one extra clip in my vest. Will be carrying it on my weak side hip when I get the appropriate pouch for that and my light.

    Thanks!

    Clip? Clip? Clip? Clip? Clip??????

    Tsk, tsk.

    Better watch it orPT1987 might start thinking you're a left-leaning, biased, liberal whodoesn't know the difference between a clip and a magazine, nor one who cares. Such people know, of course, that "Clip" sounds more dangerous and deadly, so that's the term that they use.

    You don't want to be included with those fiends.

    I hate not having enough of anything. I keep spare rolls of TP in my bathroom, extra batteries with all my flashlights, carry spare gasoline in my truck and I carry TWO EXTRA MAGAZINES for my Sig. With a total of 40 rounds I think I just might have enough. I carry the mags in a Fobus dual mag paddle on the weak side. It helps balance the "load".

    I personally care an extra six for my S&W 642 (.38 snubbie). They're on my belt in a leather 2x2x2 carrier similar to http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterA3.asp?ProductID=1724&CaliberID=219 . There's an extra one of those in my car so that makes for a total of 12, six on my person and six nearby.

    16 in the magazine plus 1 in the chamber, hammer down.

    i don't carry another magazine. i think that any confrentation requiring more than 16 rounds is highly doubtful.

    I always carry an extra magazine. You don't just carry extra magazines because you think you might need to go Rambo. Youcarry one in the case of a mag or feed failure. In clearance drills you'll learn to strip the offending magazine and insert the replacement... unless you plan on ejecting all the rounds onto the pavement & reloading the mag while your predicament is occurring. It's like a spare tire. You'll probably WILL need it the day you don't have it.



    BTW 2A-XD-45-ACP, I see you are in zip code 98105. I am also. Do you live in U-District?

    I have a Para P-12. 12 in the magazine one in the chamber. 1 extra magazine with 10 on my belt, weak side. I use a Schrade knife sheath. Big enough for the double stack and looks good.

    12+1 in my XD .45 ACP (could be 13+1 but I don't like having an extra round to worry about when I unchamber) + 1 mag of 13

    depends what I'm wearing. I usually carry 15+1 9mm hydrashok in the Sig, 1x spare 15 rnd and 1x 10 rnd mag loaded with the same. I got a good deal on the 10 rnd, and I figure 41 rounds of hyrdashok will stop anything short of a tank. Hell, Jack Bauer usually has time to re-supply after less

    If I can't carry the mags because of what I'm wearing, I figure 15+1 is enough for less Jack Bauerly incidents.

    I carry a spare ten round magazine on my belt, that along with the 16 in the gun already should hopefully take care of most incidents. The way I figure it if I need any more than that, I’m in way the hell over my head and should be going for what’s in my trunk….
