Gentlemen,

Okay, Iíve found a supplier for my magazines as well as my 1911 holster, belt, and mag pouches.  Now all I need to know is how many I will need so I can order enough.

Iíve never shot Wild Bunch so am not sure about the various courses of fire.  Whatís the most mags I am likely to require?  If I get 3 double mag pouches and 6 mags is that enough for any stage Iím likely to encounter?  Or am I going to need 4 double pouches and 8 mags?

Thanks

Here in Arizona we frequently shoot a stage with 30 pistol rounds. That means 6 mags. If you have a problem of some kind, like dropping a mag while moving, you may need another mag. So I always take 7 to the loading table. One for the pistol and 6 to use as needed. You can pick up a dropped mag, but I don't if it's on the ground. If dropped on a shelf, you bet I'll pick it up.
Anyhow, I recommend having at least 7. You can carry the 7th one to the loading table in a pocket and have 6 in pouches.
Hope that helps.

Thanks Kingsnake.  I'll order 3 double pouches for my rig and 8 mags.  That gives me 6 mags on my belt, 1 in my pocket, and a spare in the cart.

Thanks again for the advice yesterday.  I contacted Tripp and they said they can ship to me, so I"m ordering the mags you recommended.

Good for you Frank. I'm sure you'll be pleased.
Hope we can shoot Wild Bunch together sometime. Maybe Winter Range?

 Grin king snake , spot on as always with good solid advice. I have a dozen trips now for
Competions . All other makes are used for practice etc. I'm like you always helping with the stages so I keep
The extras loaded just for mag management. I always carry 8 mags and take the hardest to reach for my pistol at the loading
Table. Usually we don't shoot over 30 pistol either.   Dusty Boddams

After the first time I shot Wild Bunch at Cowtown, I went out and bought 9 mags from Tripp Research.

I ordered 8 and they are on the way.  Aaron and Betty were super nice people to deal with.  Just waiting for the post office to get them here!   Cheesy
