    If you ccw routinely, do you also carry a reload? Either a spare mag, speedloader or speedstrip?

    WHERE do you carry it?

    THIS IS A TWO-PART POLL. IF YOU ANSWER, "YES" THEN PLEASE ANSWER WHERE, ALSO

    Speedloader in a pocket, usually.

    I have some carriers for them, but I use them less often than I thought I would.

    Two speedstrips for each revolver, one spare mag for an auto, in my pocket.

    In either a double mag pouch or a triple mag pouch with my shoulder holster. I did not vote as I misread the poll.

    The spare magazine is in the same compartment as the gun and is held in place with an elastic/Velcro strap.

    Ya can just see it just below the butt and to the left of the pistol in the picture above. It is a Stainless Steel 14 round S&W Model 59 magazine.

    I don't carry anymore, but when I did, I rarely carried a reload, though I should have.

    If I'm carrying my M&P 40, I'll always carry an extra magazine in my packet in a desantis pocket-magazine holder. That give me 31 rounds of .40.

    If clothing permts, I will also carry a backup gun, an M&P 340 j-frame, with 2 5-round speed strips for reloads, for a total of 15 rounds of .357 magnum. So, most of the time I have 46 rounds on me. Some people find that excessive, but I like the peace of mind. Occasionally I will just carry the 340 and a few speed strips witout the semi-auto.

    No reload. 8 rounds in a sem auto pistol is plenty, short of a gunfight of great proportions.

    I don't usually carry a spare mag with my 9mm. I have one 16+1 and a 14+1 so I don't think I should ever need an extra. But it would be nice to be able to reload my .38 spec. rev. a little faster.

    I figure five shots is enough, at least for the scenarios ive pictured. I dont plan on getting into a gun fight. I just need enough to get away.

    i carry either a kel tec pf9 or one of my usp compacts depending on clothing. i carry the usp strong side carry in a iwb holster, and my keltec in a iwb behind my right hip above my wallet. if i carry the usp i carry one extra mag in my front weak hand pocket. if i carry the keltec i keep 2 mags in a leatherman pouch on my weakside.

    i used to carry in a mag pouch but swithced to the leatherman case after hearing a few people talk about mag pouches being spotted even though their ccw was still concealed.

    Always carry one or two spare magazines.

    Because people don't go down like they do in the movies. :p

    -and-

    Under extreme stress -- a few shots may easily miss their intended target(s).

    No. I figure if I can't shoot my way out of the situation with the seven rounds in the gun, I'm dead anyway.

    I carry a spare magazine or two on my belt in mag pouches by Blackhawk!. There is another reload in my EDC bag and also two more in the truck if need be. If the problem is still not handled in 87 rounds of 9mm, I need to use the truck to get to my rifle or to some pretty serious cover - like underground!

    Either a speed strip or an extra mag dependent on what I'm carrying at the time. Lately it's a speed strip.

    If I carried a revolver I would carry at least one speed loader or a speed strip just because I would feel better with 12 rounds instead of just 6. If I carried an auto, I would carry at least one spare mag not cause of capacity but an auto can fail, and I may need to clear a jam or have a mag related problem.
