When any govt, or church,says This you can't read, are forbidden to know, the result is tyranny and oppression. Little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked; no force can control a free man, not the rack, bombs, not anything, you can't conquer a free man, at most you can kill him.

5 - 25 round “stick” mags for my MAC10/9 in a front chest pouch. One in the pistol grip for a total of 175. I leave it in auto, with the bolt back (it’s an open bolt gun) and safety on. Great thing is that a machinegun is not considered a handgun so no worry about 30.06 signs or bars. :cool:

My round count varies with weather, dress, and where I'm going.

My minimum is 13. I top out at 46.

If I think I might need more than that where I'm going, I just don't go there.

13 Rounds in my PX4 SC. most every day. Sometimes I carry my P92 with 15 , and anothe 15-20 in a spare Mag.

Got me thinking though, maybe I should carry an extra mag for the PX4 with me.

8 round mag in my 1911 (one in the chamber) and a belt pouch with 2 more 8 rd mags, unless I am traveling away from my home county then I add 2 more 8 rd mags in the pouch bringing my total up to 40 rds usually 180 grain hollow points. If I am carrying my 9mm baby desert eagle (which nowadays is less frequent) then its one 15 rd mag on the weapon and a spare 15 rd mag on my belt.

Minimum 25
Maximum depending upon how many extra magazines above the 2 normally carrying.

It depends on what I'm carrying that day.

12+1 in my P250, sometimes if I'm feeling spunky I'll carry an extra 17 round P320/P250 magazine for a total of 30.

For formal or evening wear, 1911, 7+1 plus 7 round spare.

For really concealed carry, Kahr PM9, 6+1 plus 7 round spare.

Daily 15+1 in my Glock .45 caliber Glock 30S and 20+1 in my Glock 26, so total 37 rounds on my belt

That's when I don't carry an additional extra Glock 26 with 13(or 15)+1 in pocket if going to big city or instead of the additional big city spare 26 ... but my city travel trips are really rare, once or twice a year to Austin or elsewhere like that
in that pocket today & tomorrow at a rattlesnake area country church built in 1905 down miles of dirt roads north of Llano... I carried a spare 5 shot revolver with shakeshot instead of the extra pocket Glock for big city travel
