    On more than one occasion, I've bought a pistol then immediately spent more money on mags than the cost of the pistol. One of the things that makes autopistols fun is having enough ammo loaded and ready to go that an entire range session doesn't require stopping to reload magazines.

    I could load up ~400 rounds of 9mm in my Glock mags. That makes for an efficient range session.

    That's not always the perfect approach, though. I can load up more ammo for my H&K PSP than I could possibly fire at one time. The pistol gets so hot after 40 or so rounds that you have to leave it alone to cool down. Despite having a bunch of mags for it, I usually just take two to the range. That way, the time I spend filling mags forces me to leave the pistol alone and let it cool down.

    How about a 1911 in 10mm! It's already has a 10rd. mag. capacity, .............a definite defense round. Perfect!

    I drive into Commiefornia from my neighboring AZ occasionally. Never my choice or preference. This question comes up each time.

    I have a SA XD45 pistol in 460 Rowland that I would take but for the compensator, which is illegal in CA due to the evil threaded barrel lol.

    Right now it would be an EAA Witness in 10mm (I can and do conceal) or my current project, a Glock 22 converted to 357 sig.

    But since there was a pos extended mag made for it even those might be in danger of being band

    Probably my gen 3 G27. I have a p365 and it is appreciably smaller that the Glock...but there is no amount of pixie dust that can be sprinkled upon a micro compact that will allow them to stay their size and carry 9 or 10 of 40 s&w. But then again; I may just go to a s&w 327 pug nose and ignore all this silly “magazine” talk with 8 357 magnums on board.
