I carry an extra mag.  It helps balance me out.

No.

The "average" person with a CCW permit only carries some of the time, frequently off body carries and rarely carries a reload.

Most? No.

I usually do, if I am carrying my XDs then I always do.

Nope.  Most people with a CHL don't even carry their gun, forget about an extra magazine.

ETA: it should go without saying, but I carry an extra magazine.

When I carry my Glock 21 I have 13 +1 and a couple spares in the truck but not on my person. When I carry my XDs 5+1 I always carry 2 or 3 spare mags.

Well, I do. But I'm not sure I qualify as average.

Why not just have a long gun in your car?

Lack of poll = fail.

No the average CCW holder does not carry a reload.

I will if it's a single stack gun.   Sometimes I will carry a spare with a doublestack, not that often though.

Probably true.

I am not the norm here I guess.

Always carry a Glock on my person and always have a spare mag.

Those interested enough in guns to join and contribute to a gun forum are the exception in the gun owning community, not the norm.

None of us would probably qualify as "average".  I can think of 5 friends or associates off the top of my head who have had a CHL for a year or more and I'm not sure if they've carried more than once.

I do, but I also carry even when hanging out in the house.

Heh heh... in true Arfcom fashion, I carry both a spare mag and a spare gun.

Only when I go to work, because at work I carry off body in a 5.11 backpack with one of those hook and loop discreet pockets. Keep an extra mag in there. But I've never carried one on my person.

This is the answer I get from most, but i carry 2 spare mags. It's not like a mag might malfunction right?

I'm kind of "paranoid" not too.



Just the other day when I was getting ready to head to the store I was debating if I really "needed" to grab the spare mag before I left, after all I was just running down the street to get gas for the car and a Slurpee; then I though "Yeah, today will be the day the zombies attack and I need that extra 13 rounds"

what % of ccw holders actually carry everyday and everywhere?
Link Posted: 7/25/2013 10:02:37 AM EDT
[#28]
I think the majority don't regularly carry.

Of the ones I know who do carry, it's about half and half between those who carry a spare mag and those who don't.

When I drove Taxi it was 3 guns and a total of 63 rounds.
RFN its a 6 shooter- no reloads.

I don't carry an extra mag.  Take a ride on the wild side

I carry another gun and a spare mag for the main gun.

Depends on my gun. If it's my 1911 then yes. If it's my .38 Bodyguard then I'll carry an extra speed strip. If it's my 9mm Walther PPQ then not usually.

Yes. Why no poll?

Id say most CHL holders dont even bother carrying their gun "unless they think they'll need it", much less reloads.

This.

I'm average.  
Link Posted: 7/25/2013 10:07:25 AM EDT

I doubt the average one does.

I always do.

It's not just about more ammo; mag changes are one of the best ways to deal with a malfunction. Also- more ammo

Most of the time I pocket carry an XDS 9mm with an extra mag on the weak side. Otherwise I carry an XD9 service with a 20rd extended reload.

That would be my guess, and my experience.

I carry one spare mag for my primary, and 2-3 speed strips for my backup.

Same here.  Although I usually have one or two spare mags in the car.

No, unfortunately. I know many people who carry, and most don't carry backup mags.
 






I am guilty sometimes. When I carry a G19, M&P or any 15 round guns,  I carry spares probably half the time.




When I carry my P3AT. I ALWAYS carry 2 extra mags
