    Made Decision... Solved Capacity Issue (for me anyway...)

    I had been teetering on whether or not to do some dealing and go to a 10+1 45 like Taurus 145 or G30 but I just love my 1911. So after some deliberation and not having a lot of available funds I bought a 10 rd CM mag, it cycles perfect and the extra inch isn't any harder to conceal with the cant I use everyday... now I have the 10+1 in my prefered platform

    I hope to pick up a couple more over the next couple months... problem solved, thanks Chip!

    Another smart option would be two 1911s. This solves your problem quite nicely.

    I like 10 round mags for my P220 (normally 8+1). I use them as spare mags on my belt, though, not in the gun. For me they are just that little bit too much. I am comfortable with 9 on board and another 10 on tap.

    Gald you found your solution.

    Sounds like the right move and a wise one to boot...

    I'm glad you found a solution to your issue.

    Truthfully, I have never really been concerned with capacity. If I felt the need, I just carry a spare mag. I use Wilson 47D's that are only seven rounders.

    But we all have to do what works for us, and sounds like you made a good choice.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    'Same as Gman, except my spare is usually super-sized (if you're gonna need the spare, you know you're really gonna need it).

    I do like your solution, although you threw away a perfectly good excuse to buy another firearm.

    I carry with 8 round Wilson in the pistol, 8 round or two in a mag carrier, and a 10 round Wilson in my cargo pocket.
