Poll - How many rounds?

Postby Lynyrd » Fri Oct 27, 2017 8:01 pm

I'm going through the assessment phase again of my daily carry habits. I think it's wise to examine ourselves every now and then. And I'm wondering about the number of rounds I carry. How many rounds do you carry daily? Not your minimum. Not your maximum. Not loose rounds, but rounds loaded in a magazine. Your answer should include what's in your EDC gun, plus all backup mags you carry on your person.

I added a less than 7 category for revolvers, and it erased the votes already cast. :banghead:

My EDC varies as I would think others do. During the week if I have to get out of the car after work or lunch, it's 12+1, no spare mag in a Walther P99. Weekend will be 6+1, 7 in extra mag for a Walther PPS. So generally 13 or 14 for me.

45 shield
6+1 in the gun and I always carry a back up 7 rounder so 14.

When I carry my Glock 19
15+1 in gun and may or may not carry an extra mag

LCR 357 mag
5 in the gun and 5 in a speed strip on my belt.

Which gun I carry depends on the situation. Sometimes it’s two at one time.

My SP2022 carries 15+1, and I carry one 17-round spare all the time. Total 33 rounds.
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

Just curious, why 6+1 in the Shield? Why not 7+1?

S&W M&P Mod 2.0 9mm 5inch. I carry 16 rounds in my 17 round magazines as I can more reliably and easily seat the magazines in the pistol when quickly reloading. I carry as many magazines as will reasonably fit with varying arrangements of belt loops and pockets. 32 to 64 +1

Ya know it’s just out of habit now. At work I have to stay very concealed and the flush fit 6 round mag doesn’t print whereas the 7 rounder with the extension does. If I OC that gun I’ll swap to the 7 round or if I’m owb carry at all. I always carry a back up mag regardless and whichever mag I carry in the gun I still only have 14 rounds. Now I do have an 8 round mag. It’s got a hyve mag extension on it but you can’t carry with 9 in the gun because with 8 in the mag it’s so tight you can barely rack the slide and I fear If i had 8+1 it could cause a malfunction. It’s a range mag for that reason. I can shoot just as good with the flush fit mag so either choice wether is the 6 or the 7 in the gun I feel confident.
