If you have one or more semiautonatic rifles for self defense or emergency use how many spare magazines do you feel you need? I like to have a minimum of 10 and an absolute minimum of 5. How many do you have?

When I bought the FALs I got 20 magazines, and have added to that whenever I can find the good, heavy, steel ones.

The AR just has the two it came with.

The AK has one 30-rounder, 4-40 rounders and a drum.

The SKSs just have the one fixed 10-rounder, I see no need to make them less reliable.

Then there's hundreds of stripper clips for the Mosins and Enfields.

When I get that Garand of my dreams, I'll probably go for 100 clips to start.

I only have two semi-autos.A 10/.22 & a CETME.I have 4 for each.I'd like about 20 for the CETME.The .22?I'm trying to trade that one away so I don't really need alot of mags for it.Interestingl though,I have about thirty 20 & 30 round AR mags.& ,LOL,I've never owned an AR.:)

I think that 10/pistol & 20/rifle sounds like a good start.


They all have to work too.Cheap crap is ,well,cheap.Grrr.
