I just picked up a P7M8 and need to purchase a holster and magazine carriers. I was interested in future competition. Considering the eight round capacity, how many magazines should I have on my belt for PPC, IDPA and Three Gun? Not competed in any of these, but want to make the right purchase for the future.

Gary H,

I use my P7M8 for IDPA and usually go to the matches with four mags. I think I could get by on three but the fourth comes in handy. I often carry two on the belt, use a third to load the pistol, and then eject it and insert the fourth to ensure a full pistol.

I really hope you'll enjoy your P7.

In IDPA, trying to more simulate actual carry habits. But I use one double magazine pouch and carry magazines #3 and #4 in my pockets. For USPSA three gun matches, I strap on two double magazine pouches, for a total of four. Four single stack eight rounders seem to cover most any stage. That's my formula.
