22 Chip McCormick power mags
8 Kimber Kimpro mags
That makes sense, in an Officer's size gun. In a Govt Model or Commander, the 8 rounders fit flush.
I had a couple of failures with the CMC mags early on when my son and I were competing. The Wilsons always work, as do the stock Colts. Forgot to mention earlier that I do have a few CMCs. Haven't used them for years.
(12) CMC Power Mags
Not enough. Currently have 9, with 4 more enroute.
At least 7, but to be honest, I'm not real sure.
Five for my 45, but I'm about to acquire 3 more for a 10mm. They're on layaway
I currently have 11
At one point, over 50.
On one of my ships, that I decommissioned in 2001, the Torpedomen found a bunch of .45 components and magazines in the bottom of a locker when we were emptying all the equipment and lockers off the submarine. They had a TON of magazines.
This was a few years after we had converted over to the M9 and no longer carried the 1911's. Everything was going to be tossed into the dumpster, so they put the word out for anybody that wanted anything and then doled them out. I got a couple magazines, but they wouldn't give me any more "because other people might want some".
After a couple days with nobody else coming to them, I ended up with well over 50 magazines.
I took them all apart, cleaned them all up nice, romoving any rust and oiling them up afterwards to protect them.
Tested each one in my colt 1991A1 and never had a single problem. (That's a lot of ammunition, by the way.)
I stored them away, nice and preserved, arranged from nicest condition to worst condition. Then, any time I ran across someone with a .45 who only had one magazine, I'd give 'em a couple.
In fact, the last person I gave some to was a THR member. Bugger sent me money for S&H, but I would have been perfectly happy just knowing they had a good home. Postage ain't that expensive! But in true camaraderie amongst gun owners, it was a nice gesture.
Counting the ones with my pistol, I have 9 total now...which means I could still give away two more while keeping my personal minimum of 7 magazines.
Seven...because 7 X 7 with a round in the chamber is a full box of 50, a nice convenient number when preparing to go to the range.
A good rule of thumb is to have 50-100% more mags than you think you need. You can respring them, but once the feed lips crack, or even start spreading, it is time to throw them away.
12 is a pretty minimum number for a serious use. 2 sets of 5 (1 in the gun and 4 reloads) + 2 spares
Do the Llama's take standard 1911 mags? If so, 3
I'm honestly not sure. Old army ones from my first stretch keep turning up. I only keep close track of my 5 Wilson 47Ds for my carry gun.
I've lost count. At least 10 for each caliber - .45, 9mm, 10mm and 38 super, a few for .22 conversion slide and a couple for the RIA double stack. Likely more than 20 for .45 ACP. I really have to find a way to organize them.
6 47D's and 3 Kimber. I guess I am a light weight in this crowd.
power mags, ETM's, 47D's and ACT's all 8-10rders
currently I only have just one 7 round mag, came with my series one kimber.
I have my first upcoming bowling pin shoot and I am allowed a 8 round mag for that, so ill be buying a second mag one shortly
2 dozen and a few randoms.
In 9x19, I currently have 34 magazines, some of which are dedicated to certain guns as 9x19 1911s are magazine-sensitive. 9x19 magazines that work in one gun often do not work in a different model, and the magazines seem to go south fairly quickly.
In .45, I have well over 50 magazines as magazines are consumables. Feed lips will spread, base plate welds will fail, some have bumpers for guns with magwells and some do not for guns without magwells, etc.
3 blued GI Checkmate from the 80s with modern followers for my Model of 1911.
3 stainless Checkmate with GI feed lips for my Remington R1S.
Plus the 1918 Colt magazine and the two craptastic mags that came with the R1S, but these I don't use.
I now have 3 2 from Sig and one from colt

13 of various brands for 2 1911's.
2. But the 1911 is a safe queen.
I have six seven shot mags, and one ten shot mag.
The most use I have gotten of them has been in the local military matches (three targets, 10 rounds per target, I load six mags with five rounds each). Three military pattern, one Colt factory, two poor after-market that came with the gun.
The ten round is an abomination as a magazine (soft metal, poor heat treat) but is useful as a handy pez dispenser for holding extra rounds in the range bag.
I have 4. After reading this thread maybe it's time to get a few more.
I have around 25 or so....a mixture of Chip McCormicks, Wilsons, KimPros, Colts and some unmarked ones.
I have three 10 rd Springfield Armory Mags and another 10 rd mag that is a Wilson....
Three magazines, 1 factory Taurus magazine and 2 Chip McCormick Shooting Star magazines. I need to get back to a gun show and get some of those $5 GI magazines for spares, along with some more Chip McCormick mags.
