How many rounds is too many?

23+1 of 40 S&W seems about right for a night-stand gun.

I've run the 170mm Taylor Freelance Extension in a number of matches now. It won't hold the slide open on the last round... but it runs.

Yes, it prints just a bit if you try to carry it... LOL But why worry about reloads? (It'll hold 27-28 on a 9mm mag)

They are only about $50 IF you can get one off Speed Shooters...

No such thing as "too many rounds" unless you're going swimming...

Must look into these to rebuild some ProMag garbage that I go in trade.

Our California AG has determined 10+1 to be sufficient. I'm certain that's what in her nightstand. Oh, wait, she (most certainly) has security.

You can't have too much ammo.

Not as bad as California, but in NJ, we are limited to 15.

It's actually quite shocking to my Liberal friends... I have a 24-round 40 Cal, and a 47-round AR in my house. Neither has killed ANYONE yet.

Sounds impossible, but it's true.

According to Cuomo in NY, no one needs more than 5 bullets.

I'm sure all of his personal security only loads 5...

That should be the first question out of a reporters mouth at his next press conference... "How many rounds does your bodyguard carry in his magazines?"
