    Absolutely.When I was in Law Enforcement I always carried 2 extra mags.There is always the possibility of more than 1 assailent,and that's the wrong time to "wish" you had more rounds.Not paranoid,just prefer to be prepared.

    Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Depends if I have a particular reason based on where I am headed for the day. For example, if I am headed to the woods, I carry an extra mag. Most of the time when I pocket carry, I do not carry an extra mag. Most of the time when I hip carry, I do.

    I carry 7 in my CW40, and a another 7 in a mag on my weak side.
    When I carry my Baretta .40 with 13 in it, I don't usually carry a spare.
    When I'm packing my 5 shot .44 special Charter Arms revolver, I carry 2 speedloaders.

    Several have mentioned keep spares in their vehicles. How does that help when you're not in your car? Shoot once, malfunction... dash to your car, unlock, open door, rummage through center console, drop mag, insert new mag, re-engage BG, hope he just stood there waiting for you during this whole process.
    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

    Yes, because you may be dealing with more than one person and its better to be prepared, there is also always an extra mag in the car.

    +1 Yep your most likely dead especially if its the round that is the failure. That must be the scariest thing ever to have to use your gun and just hear click on the first shot.

    Why would you drop your whole mag for a malfunction? Why wouldnt you just manually rack the slide as hard and as fast as possible to eject whatever caused the failure and cycle the next round into the chamber?

    one should definitely practice with the ol TAP, RACK BAND BANG THING. alot faster than trying to find that spare magazine etc. That sholdbe part of every shooting session. Just one should know how to do it properly and reliabably to. Not a hard thing to do with some semi's but kahrs are tight and stout recoil springs and small guns also, so it takes alittle practice but easily learned..

    One has to know tha tif you get a click, you still have to clear the chamber, even it u insert a new magazine, which makes zero sense to me. TAP, RACK, BANG..
