I won't get into all the reasons for why a person might want to carry an extra magazine (gotta go to work in less than an hour over here), there's plenty of reasons that have been gone over in previous threads.

But here's one that few people seem to consider: what if the mag in your gun malfunctions? It does happen occasionally; a spring just goes kaput, or a follower cracks, or whatever.

Are you going to try and fix it (obviously not), or would it be easier to just dump that one and ram a new mag into the gun?

Or NY reload (back-up gun), if you carry a spare gun.

Point being, a spare mag is just a little added insurance just in case Murphy's Law goes into effect right before you really need your gun/mag to work.
