    I wonder how Cuomo's going to like all those bad guys being shot with 45ACP's.....

    Just wondering out loud how Gov.Cuomo going to react to bad guys getting dropped by large-caliber handguns that CCW holders and retired LEO's will flock to thanks to the 7 rd magazine limit he imposed? It seems to me that a resurgence in guns like 1911's and large-bore revolvers will replace double-stack 9mm's and 40's now being carried in large numbers. Now, I KNOW(as do folks here onDC), no pistol round in the common 38Spl-45 range is appreciably better than another...but the newspapers will be eating up the first perp dropped by a "Forty-Five" or "Dirty Harry 44 Magnum". All I know is if retired LEO's can't carry our old duty weapons, in my case a Glock 19,in NY any longer I'll be packing my Colt Series 70 Government when I'm up visiting or working in the Empire State. Can't wait for the first Daily News headline about this subject !!

    I doubt if their plans include anything with more than 0 rounds capacity being permitted for much longer.

    I've said it before... If I had a 7 round limit, I would probably pick up the .50 cal Guncrafter conversion for a Glock 21

    Most of the folks will still be getting shot with high capacity handguns. Thugs are not going to get rid of their gun to comply with the law. But, yes I do believe you are correct. I was already thinking Glock better ramp up production of the G36. I am guessing we all will suffer when they buy up all the 1911s. 45ACP ammo is already to exspensive.

    I wonder if buckshot is limited to seven pellets.

    Yeah, once just one "poor " bad guy gets taken out with one well placed .45 acp round the antis will rally against "over kill".

    And I will say "no, killed 'em just enough"!

    that .45 leaves some pretty big leaks

    Add this to the list of unintended consequences of kneejerk, or shall I say spastic, legislation. Ill-advised and poorly thought out.

    But it's pretty dang funny!

    Just carry 8-9 shot revolvers. Law prohibits magazines, not cylinders.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Even though I could have had double-stack 9mm's and 40's,
    I never left my single stack .45's
    Back to the future.

    I have to admit, I like my M&P40 with 10 rounds. But don't think I haven't been eyeing an ultra carry.
