Due to the weight of most GBBR mags approaching ( and in some cases) exceeding RS weight) most AS players find the loadout weight onerous .. and run fewer mags and carry loose ammo .. but then fail to realize that the mags take gas as well a bbs
you will pretty much eliminate the weight / Bulk benefits of running fewer mags by having to carry the gas can with you..
Get enough mags to carry 300 or so rounds and you should be fine for most enagements
Brian is pretty spot on, the only thing I would add is that you need to carry enough ammo to be effective. Remember not everyone uses real or low-caps. Alot of players use mid-caps and even hi-caps. If your opposition is just spraying bb's at you (it happens) and you only have 1 or 2 mags you may not feel competative. Granted its the player not the gun, but rate of fire does contribute.
