After your 7th shot you reach for your BUG while looking for a exit route to retreat.
As Benjamin Franklin left the hall in Philadelphia, he was asked, “What kind of government have you given us, Dr. Franklin?” He replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

Perform the appropriately-named "New York Reload".
Hope you have a good arm and throw your gun at the GB lol
I joined the NYPD in 1990. Through 20 years I was never a cop "buff" or particularly into guns. Just wanted an honest day's pay for an honest day's work and to do it safely.
The job transitioned, voluntarily to the individual officer, to the 9mm in '93 I believe. I was happy with my .38 and had no desire to switch.
But then I learned about the alarming number of cops, on-duty and off, who were shot and killed or seriously wounded while reloading their 6 or 5 shot revolvers. Once I shot the Glock, with its capacity and ease of reload, I was instantly sold.
We all know the likelihood of an encounter is very slim but it does exist. All this law has managed to do is turn back the clock on the average citizen. Everyone is now saddled with the disadvantages NYPD cops faced in the past. That disadvantage killed before and sadly, it WILL kill again.
I can't reasonably move for two more years but as a family, we're committed to leaving. In the meantime, it's multiple mags.
While I can understand the emotional call to carry our high capacity mags anyway, it's just not feasible to me when weighing risk. Within the law and justified to shoot insulates you from prosecution in the event of collateral damage. High capacity mag and justified to shoot yet a stray strikes a third party, now you're subject to criminal charges and civil damages. Yes, my life comes first but there's still so much to consider.
The prior assault weapons ban had an exemption for guns made prior to September 13, 1994. But Cuomo removed this exemption with the new law. I called Glock yesterday for the heck of it. When was my gun manufactured? April, 1994.
I guess my heads in the sand?
Silly to call someone out and criticize directly for engaging in thought provoking discussion.
I did respond after that post clarifying my thoughts.
I think they're as valid as yours.
I don't agree with any of the proposed changes to gun law, for the record.
By my math, a 1911 in each hand =16 rounds.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
I truely hope that those that are in new fake york that are gun fans that you all move out of that god forsaken state cause truely the wack jobs can have the state for all I care. I'm for even moving the statue of liberty to Mt. Rushmore even where at least we're still free to our choices of gun preferance. PLEASE leave that state and let all those that think they're safe without guns stay and give them your prayers cause they'll probly need it sooner than later. Oh and for all the cops and federal agents how's the new gun laws working out for you as I hear it they've not changed the law that makes your guns exempt from the fake norm of which you are by law supose to inforce. good luck with that one as well guys and I'm praying that no harm comes to you when you're forced to play the devils hand and arrest those that had such weapons before the fake law was put into place. I still want to know how they can rightfully say such things with mags when by the manufacture it was sold as a higher compacity and now you're being forced to buy something you don't want? I wish I was lawyer as I'd have such a field day with this one and I'm sure the gears are shifting into high for those that are for I'm rooting for you to win big. Oh and I hope that the fake president gets impeached too on his fake term of office also.
First, if you are alone against SEVERAL criminals intent on shooting you, you better hope you first shots find their mark are you are in truly deep doodoo. So whether you have 7 or 13 rounds won't matter much. Personally, I carry a 5 shot 642 so I will make every round count and hope I can reload really really fast!!
What happened after the first six?
There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
We have deep thinkers and stinkers in this group that could come up with a solution...

They are not going to hear a click since the slide will be locked to the rear. Statistically there are absolutely very few chances that anyone is going to dump more than 7 rounds in a defensive situation. However should one be susceptible to that, carry extra magazines, I guess. I carry one extra, 30 rounds should be sufficient.
