Daily carry already under that limit.

Or, load up on 9 round short mags for my XD40 subcompact.

Glock 26....it's already my carry gun. If our"betters" decide we need less than that, I might get a .44 Magnum carry gun just out on spite.

Statistically speaking, the probability of having to use more than 3 rounds during a self-defense situation is highly unlikely in our country today. I'm not offering that up as a disarming comfort, just an understanding of what the average person "usually" faces when forced to defend.

I've been doing a bit of reading lately and decided that while I like carrying a mid-capacity gun, Taurus G2, I recently purchased a single stack, 7 round Taurus 709 to lighten the load . I always carry an extra magazine, never think of walking out the door with just the gun. So far my strategy is fairly simplistic; if I'm going to be out most of the day, I'll carry the G2. If I'm running in and out on a quick errand, the 709 should fit that need. We'll see how that goes for a while.

Sorry you have to make these considerations. I really thought that things would go a bit smoother for us all for a while.

My sweet spot for carry is already 7-10 shot autos. I very rarely carry my 14rd CZ75 Compact. My Walther P99C is the cat's pajamas for me, a very sweet shooter!

I like a chance to shoot the new SIG P365; 10 round mag in a single stack sized gun; otherwise my G26. Kahr, J frame, and on and on

I'm a 1911 guy, so single stacks are no issue. And I have a few 10-round magazines for my Para-Ordnance double stacks.

The only gun I have that has a magazine that holds over 10 rounds is my CZ75b.
It came with one 15 and one 10 round magazine back in the Clint** era.

I would vigorously oppose any and all legislation that would attempt to lower the magazine capacity of anything - mainly because it desn't effect me directly.

What does have a direct effect on me is:

It was tried before - it's been in effect in a lot of places for years & guess what?

The overall situation of violent use of a firearm against masses of people has just gotten worse.

There's a well know rule in troubleshooting that says, "restore to the last known working condition". This is what we should be fighting for.
Get rid of all the bad laws that have been written since these mass shootings began.

But trending to the need for more I'm sure. Probably not much short term "statistical" evidence, but with multiple assailant car jackings, knockout games, home invasions, and at times civil unrest, it might be approaching a time of the more rounds, the better.
I have up to now been fully in the 5 or 6 is enough camp. But have recently questioned that view.

This is assuming that greater than 10 round mags will be banned, as in turn them all in? I doubt that would ever happen. Current, legally owned greater than 10 round mags would surly be "grandfathered in". Anyhow, very few concealed carry handguns have a capacity greater than 10, or am I wrong? Such law wouldn't affect me, of the two handguns that I do carry, depending on outer garments, have a capacity of 5 or 9.

Don't bet the farm on that. That's exactly what "they" are now talking about.

Glock 19 is a very popular concealed carry choice. A couple things to keep in mind. Maybe some of the more svelte body types might not be able to conceal as well, but most people can.
2."Printing" with a larger firearm is more noticeable to the person carrying then gun, and checking for printing that everybody you mighpt be in silght of in public.

Doubtful it would happen. What may happen is a reintroduction of the 94 assault weapons / high capacity mag ban of manufacture. We were able to keep mags back then. The government, Federal down to village, does not have the resources and funds to go door to door for inspections.

I just Googled "top 10 concealed carry handguns". The first web site was Top 12. Not a one held more than 10 rounds.

No change. Single-stack 9x19, most of the time.
Me too - Smith Shield 9 or 45. Even carry a "lowly" 5 shot Airweight at times!

Still have some 10 round Glock 23 mags from last foolishness. So would probably go that route.

Carry a Glock 43 in warm weather so no need to change. Or at least till they decide to ban these also

I have several choices I could go to if we were limited to 10-rd mags, however, since I already have decades of experience carrying a 1911, I'd likely go ahead and carry my 1911 commander in 9mm, or my Shield9.

Star Ultrastar M205 in .40S&W would probably end up as EDC...

Don't bet the farm on grandfathering. The antis learned from their "mistakes" in 1994. They are wrong, but they aren't all dumb.

I rotate between a LCP, P64, 1911, or Springfield XD sub compact 9mm. The only one it would affect would be the XD. IF they wouldn't grandfather in mags over 10, I'd pin or block them to lower the capacity. But fingers crossed I'll never have to worry about it.
