Ok , I got to thinking when I came back from shooting today how many magazines do you have for each weapon you have? Hmmm well I know I have atleast 15 20 to 30 rd mags for my 3 AR-15's, atleast 4 for every pistol I own, and a minimum 4 to 6 for every rifle I own. So whatcha thinks guys how many do you feel is satisfactory?

BillStaf will become famous soon enough
Well, let's see...
I have 4-30 round mags for my AR-15. 2-6 round mags for my Kel-Tec P3AT, 1-10 round and 1-17 round mag that came with my SR9c, 4-25 round mags for my 10-22, and 2 speed loaders for my GP100. Also added the extended mag tube for my Remington 870 so now I can shove 7 rounds into that.

That should be enough ammo capacity (although I do subscribe to the notion that more is better, I'd rather spend my extra money on more guns rather than more mags for the guns I already have).

I'm a pistol guy but I do have a Ruger 10/22. I have just two magazines for it that are nearly 40 years old. One came with the gun and one I bought. They both work fine but I just bought two more for when I go shooting with the grand kids. That way, they can be loading their magazines while another one shoots.

Given the comments above, I am now feeling inadequate. I guess I'll just have to buy a semi-auto so I can get lots of magazines. (Now if they would just add the SR1911 to the California "safe" gun list I'd be at the store right now.)

3 per handgun or semi-long guns, usually double that for anything I shoot in competition.
