I recently purchased a Glock 19 and obtained a CCP. Was wonder if most of you carry an extra magazine besides the one in your pistol.

I do with my 1911, as it only holds 7 rounds. I don't with my G19, as it holds twice as much. After the Colorado shootings, I am rethinking my strategy.

Always at least one extra, I have a pack I carry I can put an extra in with my gun and a holster with an extra mag holder.

Minimum of 1 13 rnd mag for my G30 and on days I carry the 1911 Kimber a Minimum of 2 8rnd Mags extra. So with my G30 I have 24 (10+1 in the Gun and 13 in the G21 Mag.) And with the Kimber 1911 I carry 25 (8+1 in the Kimber and two (2) 8 rnd Wilson Mags. Now there are times when I carry 2 or 3 extra Mags when my Gut tells me to. Sometimes I just feel better with more Bullets:D

When at or going to work I carry only my G29 with 10 rounds. I do have a 20 round mag and a G20 mag in my Maxpedition bag in my vehicle. When not at work I have the 20 round mag in a Fobus holder on my person.

I carry a gen 4 27 and I always carry a spare mag and both mags have the pierce plus two base plate . I don't like slots things in my pockets but you can never have enough ammo. Justin

Basically the same for me, except I dont carry my 1911. I carry 2 extras with my Taurus, and when I get an extra or two for my Sig I will carry those as well. I can pocket carry the two for the Taurus, but not for my 17 or for the Sig so I need IWB mag holders.

I always carry two extras in a mag pouch just to be on the safe side

I actually carried an extra mag for the first time yesterday. I guess the events of the day caused a change in thinking.

I had previously thought 15 rounds would be plenty. I've started to rethink my EDC. Now carry 30 rounds daily.

Extra mag in the bag with my BUG right now. As soon as I find a concealed mag carrier I like I'll have the extra mag on my belt.

Check this out on AMZN: Maxpedition Single Sheath (Black)

This works great for my G19 mag. I carry it horizontal on my weak side. It can also be carried vertical.

Unlike what most people have said, I do not carry an extra one. I carry the 19. If 15 rounds can't do the job then I am probably in a lot of trouble anyway.

I carry my primary gun at about 4:00, and an extra mag at 8:00 in a mag holder. I also carry a Kahr pm9 in my left front pocket. After holding the Kimber solo today, I may replace the Kahr.
