    No matter how many magazines you have, the answer is always simply MORE!

    Really it depends on what you are comfortable with, can afford, and are available. I don't think there is any one size fits all correct answer.

    How many you should have will depend on what the scenario is, its duration, how you will travel for sustainment/resupply, and how far you will travel, and what else you'll be carrying and how. Also, will you be moving/hunkering down discreetly, and to what extent?

    Having a dozen on your body might be handy, but might be too much bear for a given set of circumstances.

    2-4 magazines is a lot of shooting, but perhaps not over time. Nonetheless, it's a typical basic load for many.

    2-4 mags, backed up by more in a vehicle or at a base camp you're moving from or to, is likely more practical.

    I have 4 in a harnis (holds 8) and 1 in the AR, and a double mag next to the gun. I will most likely never "need" any of it, but it is ready. Most of my mags are in marked .50 cal cans. I have more than I will ever need, but I will be getting more when I can...

    I find 10 to be the minimum for stashing, for either rifle or handgun. Truth is the sky is the limit depending on what one may afford or store.
