How many loaded AK mags you keep handy

I've got 26 mags and a 75 round drum all loaded and ready to rock with an additional 1000 loose rounds in ammo cans,
All for only one rifle,

My lula mag loader is my best friend

I only own 10 mags for my one AK. They are all loaded.

All of them. I don't see any reason not to leave them loaded.

This, although I try to keep a few empties around for training

25-30 rounders all loaded along with 2-100 round and 4-75 round drums; the drums are loaded FMJ, AP, incendiary, explosive, tracer: 2 tracer at 50 rounds and 4 at end of mag.

Now for the ARs, got a heck of a deal on 300 mags a few years ago, 100 loaded, also have 25-20 rounders also loaded FMJ, AP, incendiary, explosive, tracer.

Unless you live in Iraq I just don't see the point. I have one loaded mag in my rifle and a loaded Glock next to the bed. I am not in trouble with the law and can't imagine a home invasion that 30 rounds of 7.62 wouldn't repel. I can see it if something like Katrina happened in your area but seriously though, what do you think might happen?

I am not making fun of any of you but what do you think may happen that you would need more loaded mags than a Marine carries into battle?

Explosive? You just run down to the local LGS and pick those up? 2 30 rounders and a 75 rd drum in the safe

I might decide to go to the range in a hurry.

When I was in Indiana, during the 80's and early 90s there was a vender at the INDY 1500 gun shows that dealt such "exotic" ammo and I usually made substantial purchases each show, I also have the same mix plus AP incendiary for the 7.62X51s. He had shot out the barrel in his German made BAR copy in 8mm so he sold me 2,000 rounds of tungsten core AP he had left over to feed my FNs.

Cool, wish I could run across something like that.

loaded? hmmm..well, I see I am in the minority with this response but I only keep (1) 10 round polytech mag loaded and laying on top of the safe. If I needed a weapon in an emergency it would probably be the 12ga but I keep a AK mag available for the "who knows what might happen" moment.

I live in a hurricane area so I keep loaded mags ready, also in case of a ban I want as many as I can afford to have on hand, if a ban should come down the pipe they are money in the bank...

Let me ask the opposite question.
You have mags?
You have ammo?
You know that having an AK mag loaded will not wear it out?
Why not have all your mags loaded?

An RPK in each hand, 75rd drums in both, 1260rd ammo crates slung over each shoulder... But no, 4+1 for the AKs, and 6+1 for the ARs.

Personally, I only keep the mags loaded that I would carry with me. 4 on the chest and 2 on the gun.
Nothing wrong with keeping them all loaded, but I don't feel like reloading them all up after a range trip.

i only have 7 steel 30 rounders, 6 loaded and in a chest rig and 1 in my weapon. all loaded. it doesnt wear the mag out, so why not? id rather have loaded mags and not need them than need it and not have them around. Although i dont see any home invasion resulting in more than 30 rds of AK fire. thats what the Saiga 12 is for.

because I can store 2 times the ammo in a GI ammo-can if they are not in the mags, space is limited. I do not have much consideration for how I store mags.. I do however, have some considerations when it comes to safetly storing ammo.
