    I always carry a reload regardless of what I have with me. Elsie is my EDC and I have a spare mag in the watch pocket of my jeans, along with another spare in the car. As a retiree whose orbits are pretty safe I know there is almost zero chance of needing my gun, let alone a reload, but I ran out of ammo in the middle of a gunfight when I was a 28 y/o detective (issued Colt DS). I'm just curious; how many others always carry extra ammo?

    Used to carry a spare mag, but anymore I find it just as easy to carry a second LCP.

    The primary is always in my front right pocket. The secondary floats around depending on attire and/or situation.

    Sometimes, depending on where I'm gonna be and usually at night. Not ashamed to admit it either.

    As much as I had to pay for my second mag i was going to use it, so I put it in the truck & there it stays until I go to shoot.

    I always carry a spare mag for whatever pistol I'm carrying. Partly over concern for shooting a mag empty, as well as knowing that mags can fail, cause me to always carry a spare.

    I always try to carry at least one spare mag. It's not always the true need for extra shots it could be necessitated by the need to clear a jam.
