You're not far wrong, Fishy, when I went to Iraq in '05, we were issued two Vietnam era 3 mag pouches and encouraged to purchase more to put on our gear. Yep, the Army expected us to go to a fight with exactly 7 magazines. I generally carried about 10 (not that I ever needed to pull trigger, ever, but preparedness is key).

Nowadays, they have issued us this new set (yes, even us pogues in the Guard have this now) that comes stock with enough pouches for 12 magazines and 2 hand grenades. That doesn't count the single mag-sized pockets on the lower legs of our ACU's/MultiCams, and whatever pouches we put on our weapons. Remember, you never run out of enemies, only out of food, water, and bullets.
