If my Kimber had come with two mags that just would've meant I was paying a little extra money, and for that extra money all I would've had was two unused mags instead of just one.
When I buy a 1911 I prefer it to come with only one mag: I'm going to use Wilson Combat mags anyway, and I'd rather not pay extra for my gun so it can come with another mag I don't want.
