Eh, I guess I assumed that goes without saying.

Hmmm. For some of us, yes. But consider how often an "average" is thrown around in the news as if it means something all by itself!

Other than that, I think we're agreed!

Well, maybe except for this part:

doesn't mean we should all keep ARs and loaded mags with us at all times.

How can you call yourself a gun nut and say a thing like that?


Better to know what you don't know than to think you know what you don't know.

OK back to this one - I have so many I'm not sure how many I have. IOW, I think I have almost enough, per Tamara's Maxim.

pbass, they sure have and have gotten much better. I have had very few problems with surplus mags and have never had a problem with my current McCormick 10 round mags.

Some good stuff

I would say own as many as you find practical

I like the idea of some mags dedicated to carry

I would suggest carrying at least one spare....unless it is simply impossible

For my carry guns I have a minimum of 6 mags. That way I have 1 in the gun, 2 in the mag carrier and 3 to rotate. I switch the 3 loaded mags with the 3 spares every month.

See now, I was always taught that "enough" mags was one more than you currently had, and "enough" ammo was 100 rounds more than what was on hand. Always seemed to make sense to me...
