    Okay I'm starting to see a consensus here.
    I will give you all a reason why I asked this question.
    I was reading on of the threads here in the gun law section [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    And I was thinking if this would ever happen how easy it would be for a DA to twist the fact that you carried more ammo then what is in the gun.
    I have really pondered this a lot.
    It is easy to explain why you have multiple clips at home in your castle but it does leave you open for interpretation when you out and about in the street or in public.
    It would be very easy for any lawyer to make you look like a gun totting crazy person that was just looking for a opportunity to use their gun.

    Please don't misunderstand my comment here as this is not what I obviously feel about carrying a second clip or even gun but a thought of what could happen if you do.

    Any thoughts?

    A DA will do EVERYthing he can think of to paint you as a psycho gun nut. It's up to you to hire an attorney who is better than the DA. No pat answers can serve all cases specifically.

    I would make sure I know what reasons *I* have for carrying a specific caliber, quantity of ammo, carry position, ammo type, etc. Even though you shouldn't have to justify every detailed action you take, you may have to do so.

    Most importantly of all, you will have to answer the question of your intent in using or carrying a firearm at all. No matter what, your intent should be nothing more than to stop a threat. Not to kill. All too often, I hear people tell how they have make SURE the bad guy is dead before you stop shooting but if that is your intent, you're going to be taken down for intent to kill, ergo, to murder. No matter what else you do, be sure you understand THAT question and all other issues will follow that intent.

    Never heard of having an extra mag on you being used by a DA here in South Texas. Maybe in some parts of the country.

    Hi Wag,

    Thanks this is good advice and kind of what I was thinking.
    After reading that thread and other things on the same subject I am formulating a plan of action and ways to behave just in case.
    I already have a good lawyer for all purpose do to being a business men and always needing advice.
    Now he may not be the very best a that but will be a good start and also is always available to me and if not him then someone in his firm.

    Until now I had never really given much thought to what would happen after if I ever had to defend my self or family.

    I would encourage others to look into this too, the link I posted a little further up is a great start and eye opener.

    If I have my revolver, usually 1extra speedloader. .45acp, 1 extra mag. And I`m with Popeye and budroe, I ain`t gonna stand there and do an OK Corral. I`m firing just enough to get out. Having a little spare ammo makes me feel better.

    Shoulder rig w/ a double mag pouch, I use it. My beretta might have 17+1 capacity, but I like to be safe.

    I think it comes down to "whatever makes you happy", based upon your circumstances as far as I'm concerned. I also think that Wag had a good point about not looking like a pshyco in front of the DA, but I wouldn't let that stop me from carying whatever I felt like carrying. As a LEO we were trained to have extra ammo, and my contention would naturally be the truth which is that I just continued the habit/tactict that I was trained to do. We still qulify and have to reload during live shoots, so although it may be asked in judcial review, I'm comfortable with my answer. Shooting to "STOP" a valid threat to your life, or to stop serious bodily harm, is okay everywhere in this country as far as I know (although I'm not a lawyer), but saying that you intended to kill, or shot to kill a person, will (as Wag suggested) probably get you a long stay in prison. Know your rights and laws that pertain to you in the states that you will be carrying, but I think that in most situations it's safe to go with: it was your last and only possible alternative before you were going to be killed or be seiously injured. If there was something else you could of done including making a cell phone call to the police, you can count on that being a problem if you could of and you didn't. Just some thoughts!

    If I knew exactly how many rounds I was going to need every time I walked out my house, then I would know enough to go a different direction. Until I can tell the future, I will continue to carry some extra ammo, either in a box or a magazine.

    We have a number of cops in our neighborhood. Talked to a deputy who lives down the street about this today. If you're involved in a shooting here, and aren't arrested on the scenethe cops will take your gun as evidence until the dust settles. The deputy advised they don't take your extra magazines or spare ammo; same as they wouldn't take a knife you're carrying (so long as its legal). Things are pretty conservative down here. He said he had never heard of anyone getting additional attention after a shooting for having extra magazines. He said a shooter wearing a tactical vest with 6 or 8 mags might draw some extra scrutiny.
