    Highest capacity .40 handguns?

    Hello,

    I would like to move from 9mm to .40 after shooting my friends XD 40 tactical. However, I hate to give up my 15+1
    rounds with my Beretta 92fs (option for 20). The XD is only 12 rounds...

    What choices do I have for the highest capacity .40's out there.

    Glock 22- 15+1 and aftermarket 30rd if it makes you feel better.

    I just gave my brother a 15 round mag with sleeve for his Glock 23. So that gives him 15 +1 . There are several out there. I use a Glock 27 with the +1 ext. So I have 10 +1 and carry a 17 round backup mag. I feel this gives me enough fire power. You can never know how every situation would turn out. But that gives me 28 rounds of .40 cal to do something with. I like to keep the smaller mag in the gun for concealment and weight issues. Use a mag pouch for the extra. Jmo & I am sure there are a bunch of great solutions in the .40 cal

    I'll second the Glock 22 opinion.

    I'm guessing that was one aspect that Glock didn't want them to copy---the magazine design? LOL

    Well, there'e the Sig 229 SCT or 226SCT, but the mags stick out more.

    14 rounds in the 229SCT, 15 rounds in the 226SCT

    If the Glock 22 (15+1) is not to your liking, you can get a Beretta PX4 storm in 40. Normal capacity is 14 + 1. You can buy extended mags that hold 17 + 1.

    The Fn p40 has 14 rounds.

    Para S16

    16+1 capacity. Probably the best you're going to see without getting into race guns.

    I think the Beretta PX4 has 14 round mags.

    Glock 22 15 + 1 with a double mag pouch + 15 + 15 = 46rds

    Personally, I like the size of the Glock 23, but that is only 13+1. Great compromise between size and great capacity for carry. But if size is not a issue then buy the full size Glock 22.
    Be Observant and Be Safe.

    Current: S&W 442, Springfield XD9sc, XDm9, and Glock G26, G19, G23C,
    and SIG P226-40 TT, and Ruger GP-100, and Beretta 92FS
    Former: Taurus 92SS, SIG P220 TT, S&W 360, SIG P239-40, Ruger 22/45 MKII
