Or do you even carry a spare? I carry mine in my front left pocket,it's the only thing I put in that pocket so I won't have to dig for it. Has anyone used a IWB holder,any luck with them?

on my left side in a belt "pouch", as is my high lumen surefire. Other goodies are on my person also. None of this is really too great, however, without regular dry fire practice, tactical reload practice, and hot fire shoot and move practice.

I keep 2 extras in my truck, but for everyday CCW I usually don't carry a spare (unless I know I'm going into a shady situation). I think 13+1 should do for most defensive situations. If I do carry a spare, its usually in my front or back left pocket.
