Do you carry extra mags?
#1
If you are a License holder, or open carrying, do you carry an extra magazine/(s)?

I carry a Sig P320C usually in RH OWB .  I use the 15 round mag in the firearm and generally carry 2-17 round mags in a paddle carrier on my left side.
Occasionally I place the extra mags in my briefcase or my(laugh if you must)fanny pack.  

You??

I try to carry 1 extra mag with me at all times.

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

My EDC is a 1911/.45, 8 in the pistol, 1 in the chamber, a spare 8-round mag and another 10-round mag.

The Colonel appreciates your dedication!!  When I met you, that was what you were carrying.  Well trained.

Generally, no.  I only have 16 - 18 rounds depending on which gun I'm carrying.

Now if I am going on a long road trip or into an area where the risk may be greater I will take 1 or two spare mags in pouches on my belt.

I like single stack pistols, so two extra mags so I have 18-22 rounds available, if needed.

On duty, 2 extra mags....for either clearing a malfunction or engaging in a gunfight.

Off duty, I always carry an extra mag.  ...not so much because I'm afraid of running out of ammo, but more so to clear a malfunction if tap, rack, pull doesn't work.  Then I can drop or rip out the mag, rack the slide 3x, insert new mag, rack the slide, engage threat(s).
