I talk with Concealed Weapons License holders every day, and one thing the majority seem to have in common is the fact that their only magazine is the one in their gun. Some seek out extended mags to carry more ammo, and others choose higher capacity firearms for the same purpose. Yet others are of the opinion “… if I can’t get ’em in 6 then forget it”.
A spare magazine can save your life. How? Well if you are among the “get ’em in 6” crowd, remember that you are going to miss…a lot…and you are not necessarily going to be facing a single attacker. In fact, the odds are it will be more. Statistically even Law Enforcement has a 25% hit ratio under pressure. When you find yourself at a gas station at night facing 3 attackers, and you just put your 6 “somewhere”…what is your next move?
…and it is not just about having more ammo, it’s also about malfunctions and equipment failure. A double feed that requires you to pull your magazine will leave you needing a replacement. There are stories of magazine baseplates getting caught on seatbelts and dislodging, damaged magazines causing feed issues, etc…..multiple reasons why you may need to feed a new mag before the one in the gun is empty. If your magazine malfunctions, you now have only the round in the chamber.
Magazines are light and easy to carry. If you face multiple attackers or experience a serious malfunction, a spare can save your life, and insure you can continue to fight when Murphy’s law strikes.
