I carry 2 moon clips in my left front pocket for the little 9mm centennial.




Carry 2 extra magazines for the glock 21 in the truck.

My state legislature assures me that the streets of Massachusetts are perfectly safe!

For that reason, I don't generally carry an extra mag unless I'm in the woods.

I do however, carry extra D-cell batteries for my LIGHT SABER!  You just never know...

Me: Naw, we just apply a gun-shaped remedy to those extreme life threatening situations that call for it. All the less urgent problems we're willing to discuss.

Those are the same people that think that criminals will obey the next law they pass even though they haven't obeyed the previous ones

Exactly right, I believe they travel in large black Suburbans in "The Peoples Republic of Cambridge"...

RE: Car...depends.

Locally, the gun will be on my hip, in my pants pocket or in a SIG Concealed Carry Jacket pocket in the winter, along with extra ammo, so same same.

If I'm on the road, I typically have two guns...one in a crossdraw/driving holster and the "car gun" in a SafePacker. The car gun will be a little beefier or have lots more ammo, depending on my mood. Lately I've been traveling with the Carry 9 in a Blocker crossdraw and/or the jacket holster, an extra magazine for the Para in my pocket and a heavier revolver in the car. The revolver is usually a 3-inch .44 Magnum loaded with ammo that would penetrate a train locomotive end-to-end, my thinking being that while I trust my 9mm CorBon for antipersonnel situations, I'd like some back-up in the car that will seriously penetrate. I carry an extra speedloader of the penetrators and a second speedloader of Black Hills 240-gr JHP. If I get down to the 240-grainers, I'm in deep dookey...

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.

Carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum....and I've been trying to figure how to get a ccw holster to attach to it.... ;D


As for daily CCW and spare mags, I carry a Glock 27 in .40 around 75% of the time (1911 commander the other 25%). I carry 9 in the stack and one in the pipe in my Serpa. I carry two 10 rounders (grip extensions allow 1 extra round) on my person as spare reloads. In my center console of my truck, I also have two more spare 10 round (G22 mags) and a box of spare ammo. Thinking about swapping those two  in the truck out for 15 rounders.
When carrying my Commander, I carry two spare Wilson 8 rounders with Cor-Bon 185 JHP +P, to supplement the 8+1 in the gun.
