Poll -- How much ammo do you carry for your CCW?
« on: December 09, 2008, 09:01:38 PM »
Like I said in an earlier thread.....

http://www.downrange.tv/forum/index.php?topic=4224.msg49295#msg49295

I'm starting to rethink the fact that I dont carry any extra mags with my CCW. About the only thing that is really stopping me is that I dont have a mag holster, or any other way to carry a spare except to just shove it in my pocket (which I am not too keen on). I know it would be damn near impossible to do so during the summer months, but now that it is winter, I really dont have any excuse. You guys got any ideas on cheap inexpensive mag pouches or other methods of carrying a backup mag.

Isn't that how Peg mad his Leg  ;D

I didn't vote, because it varies.  With the J frame I carry one reload (5 rounds), but with a semi-auto I usually carry two extra mags.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

I voted 2, But it all depends on what I'm carrying, with my J-Frame I have 2 speed loaders and a 2x2x2 pouch on my belt(Tactical Reload) with a self loader(1911 or Hi-Power) I carry 2 spare Mags on my belt.

Ericire, Don't go the cheap route, You will be better served with a quality mag or speedloader/speed strip pouch than a cheap one. It will last longer, stay put and not dump your spare ammo on the ground when you might need it the most.

Not cheap, but cost effective is what I am looking for.

I use an Uncle Mike's paddle holster or an Uncle Mike's IWB holser. Both are very inexpensive and have served me very well.

I didn't vote because I don't carry concealed. When I open carry while hunting I usually carry two spare mags. I thought that I would probably do the same whenever I get around to getting my CPL.

It's times like this that I wish I carried my 635 S&W.  Can you imagine with me how badly I want to say I carry extra CLIPS ?


Hey ... Wait a minute ... Does a Bianchi strip qualify as a clip?

Winchester Ranger T .45ACP 230 gr.+P JHP.................................When you care enough to send the very best.

I usually carry a spare magazine for the Carry 9 or, on walks with Alf the Wonder Beagle, four extra rounds for the Bond Derringer (2 buckshot; 2 .45 Colt SilverTips).

Given the current state of the economy and the opportunity for social unrest to boil up very quickly, I tend to carry a little more horsepower when I'm in big cities or on the road. Last road trip I included an AR to keep me feeling all warm and fuzzy.

So here is a twist on this topic. Do you consider your car as part of your CCW? When you drive down to McDonalds you are in the car, out of the car, around the car. In other words do you carry extra ammo/guns in the car? How much/many?
