Good point , and spare magazines for the ” pocket pistols ” are easy to carry and hide . We should have several spare magazines for every firearm we have . Everybody has their own idea on how many is enough . My idea is for every rifle ( AK, AR , etc) a minimum of 6 , maximum of 10 , and a minimum of 2000 rounds of ammunition for each , no maximum for ammo . For pistols , I feel a minimum of 4 , maximum of 6 , with minimum of 500 rounds for each pistol , as for me a pistol is not my primary weapon . For my pocket pistol , I stop at 4 , because its the gun of last resort . I dont see any real value in having more than 10 magazines for each rifle , and in reality , I usually stop at 8 , the rest being boxed or loose ammunition . Again , everybody has a different idea . My next gun will be a FAL , and plan to follow the same pattern with it .
