I carry not only an extra mag but extra gun because if anything can go wrong it will and as someone once said a second gun is the fastest reload.

Not to mention that you can hand off the 2nd gun to a non-carrying buddy if the SHTF.

It isn't so much balance or distribution but bump and concealment. First I have to get over worrying about whether anyone can see the Glock before I start adding another bump on the other side of my body.

But if you add that bump on the other side people will think you have very symmetrical love handles.

Just a thought! :biggrin:
 
I definatly carry an extra 5 rounds for my Revolver when carry it.

Usually just the one in the S & W 40. sometimes I take an extra clip (15 rounds)
It really depends on What and where I am going.
 
I carry a spare mag for my .380 because it only holds 7, and the likelyhood of missing the target with my gun is good because it is a mouse gun. 13 rounds is hopefully enough for battle 5 minutes or less.
WHY OH WHY would you carry a weapon you are not accurate with or is not accurate in general??? Thats just plain stupid.

Be nice... Name calling not needed. It was just the way it was typed. Perhaps not worded well, but harmless none the less. Plus it's the season of goodwill toward your fellow man...
 
Maybe if I carried a 1911 with 8 rounds I'd concider carrying a spare. But I have 16 now and if I need more, I'm in Deep....

Part of carrying extra mags,is also for weapons malfunction. Sometimes you might have to dump the mag. that's already in your gun,clear a jam,then insert fresh mag. Most of the time you don't, just slap,rack,bang.
But, as they say,"one is none,two is one".(Clint Smith).

Weapon has 8 and two spares of 8 each. I don't care what you carry, it could have a malfunction and you don't have time to figure out why the other 15 don't work in your one and only mag.
