How many extra magazines do you carry for your pistol and rifle while on patrol?

Now another question, do you rotate your magazines out, say every six months?

Nope....

Springs and followers are cheap. Changed every 2 years or so. Some argue every year, but I shoot often enough and they are still fine after 2 years. I could probably go longer, but I may even cut it down to 1 year since the dept. is supposed to start picking up the tab.

I do have an extra one, at home, that I have had for 7 years. Always left loaded and still functions fine.

I don't download on my days off either. They stay loaded the entire time.

Sounds good. I ordered 20 mags from44 mag last night and will keep some of them to get me up to speed but willsell the rest to other officers at my pd.
I got to get some more mags for my G22 now though.
