While there will always be the extreme at one end or the other (a few versus a plethora), what do you consider to be a good number of magazines per firearm?

Depends on the gun. Your go to weapons you shoot a lot and would depend on in an emergency need a decent supply. I'd say 5+ for handguns and 10+ for rifles. One off range toys and nice to have stuff doesn't need but a few.

Minimum of 5. Magazine springs and feed lips do go bad and some magazines wear to the point that they fall out! Leading to the chance of a few failures over a lifetime of typical ownership. To that I'd add that 20 is a good round count per defensive gun magazine. 5ea 4 round magazines really won't help you in a confrontation.

People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

A gun that needs a magazine is worthless without one so I always buy a second when I buy the gun. If it turns out that I take it to the range allot I will end up with 4 or 5 maybe more if I am trying to find a better functioning or more rugged mag , if I end up using it in competition I may buy 10 or 12 because I need to function test them all and pick the 6 or 7 that function the smoothest. And if I buy a less than popular gun or caliber that may have a short supported life I pick up a few more. I got burned with a Remington 504 with only 2 mags when Remington decided to discontinue the gun and Mags and I ended up paying $30 per mag for NOS that was $8 before. And if you picked up a 380 LCP or Bodyguard the odds are you will never shoot it enough to wear out 2 or 3 mags.

What’s the intent? Spare parts? Saving time reloading at the range? Carrying more ammo on you?

I only have a few magazine subscriptions and don't need any spare ones.
