How many magazines do you have

How many magazines do you have per firearm? And do you stick with the gun manufacturer strictly, ie only beretta magazines for you 92fs or only Springfield Armory for your XD?

I have 3 total for my S&W SW9VE . All three are factory. Don't even know if anyone else makes them for my gun.

I have a 120rd rule(in my semi auto rifles) where I buy enough mags to hold at least 120rds (6 boxes). I will always have a minimum of 4 30rd mags for my ak and ar. Right now I do have 4 ar mags but like 9 ak mags.

5 is my minimum complement for pistols. More if it's a gun that I intend to carry or use for self-defense or in competition.

I buy primarily factory mags. I will, occasionally buy MecGar mags for guns for which MecGar is currently OEM provider--especially if the gun is primarily a "range toy". In other words, a plinker/fun gun not intended for competition/carry/self-defense purposes.

5 AR Magpul PMAGS (30 rnd 5.56)
3 .22LR mags one 10 rounder and two 30 rounders
2 mags for M&P 9.

I need 3 more mags for the M&P. The number I like to be at is 5. My .22 with two 30 rounders is plenty.

I like to have 2 times the number I use for the gun on a regular basis so collectables get two, Small CCWs that don't tend to get used for IDPA or other competetion get 4 minimum all others are 6 minimum, my 1911s each have their own mags. my 22 pistols all have 6 as that makes it so I don't have to reload mags durring my league competetion.
I tend to use factory mags but have Wilsons for my 38super and McCormics for my other 1911s I also have some Mec-Gars

It depends on how economical they are. At least three. If magazines are reasonable, I tend to stop at about 8.

I stick with OEM magazines, normally. (I do have a few Korean Glock magazines, and have not had a problem with them.)

I own at least two per each semi auto and as many as 6 for my range guns. My mags are a mix of factory and 3rd party.

you think I got mags? You should see my speedloader collection....

Minimum six, ideal eight.
For hi-caps.
But I got about twenty for my 9x19 Witness(es).

For my 1911s there is no ceiling.....

It depends. I have some uncommon guns that I only have a few magazines for. Like my wife's BUG, a Seecamp .25. I have two factory mags and made 4 more from other magazines for practice and that was the best I could do. For something like my Glocks, I keep ammo cans full of mags. For ARs I keep old Army duffle bags full. It depends on how much I use the gun, how available mags are, and how much I want to stockpile.

Same here. Except for the Ruger Standard Auto, one of the mags broke and I haven't gotten around to replacing it.
