84B20, I'm using your quote, but I mean no disrespect. Please allow me this:I'm not sure the extra rounds would make that much difference.
No disrespect taken. I guess I didn't make myself clear. What I meant to say was, for me, the extra 4 rounds compared to the discomfort I feel with the extra length of the mags cutting into my side wasn't worth it. As many have said on this and other boards the likelihood of needing more than a few rounds in a firefight is pretty slim. Having additional mag as backup in case of failure is another thing.84B20, I'm using your quote, but I mean no disrespect. Please allow me this:
If extra rounds don't "make that much difference" then why carry extra magazines? If one feels comfortable carrying extra rounds via a 10 round magazine or better yet extra magazines, I say have at it. Better to have and not need then to need and not have.
