    I have a backup gun in my truck. I always travel with two. I only carry one. Do have two spare mags in the truck for my G30 truck gun. Not my G43 carry. If I broke down in a desolate or unknown area the G30 would be on me and two mags on hand. Forget to mention that. Luckily I’ve yet to have to resort to my backup gun.

    Normally, I 'conceal' two pistols... 1 extra magazine for one... 2 for the other... because I can... not because I 'need' to.

    One. It is more for the ability to drop the mag in the gun should I need to clear a malfunction than it is for the thought of needing extra rounds.

    To be honest I usually don't carry extra mags.
    Here lately I have been carrying one extra.

    If you are using a stock Glock and it malfunctions when you need it the most, it just isn't your day. Most of us, including myself, have shot 10's of thousands of rounds from stock Glocks and I can't remember a time I needed a spare mag because of a malfunction.

    Please go to the intro area and tell us about you and your Glocks.

    I carry two extra mags at all times. Just a thought - this thread might have been a good candidate for a poll instead of replies. For what it's worth, I'd like to see the percentage of people taking the time to answer this thread. A certain percentage carry one extra mag, another percentage carry two extra, etc.

    Jim, that's my shot glass filled with my favorite beverage. I bought the last one from the range I used to go to in Arizona, and they never carried them again for some reason. But they're online here: https://luckyshotusa.com/
    I gotta get me one of their whiskey glasses, and a beer glass would be cool too. They have a way to stick real .308 bullets into the side of every glass. The company is all vet-owned too.

    One spare. I figure that 33 rounds of CorBon 9mm 115gr +p jhp rounds should be enough.
