    30 round mags

    So I recently came upon a great deal, 2 30 rd mags for $50 (NIB). Besides fun at the range at the time I couldn't think of any other reason why I was buying them. Obviously that mag is just a little to big to carry and I will just stick with the 17 rd when carrying. Anyway here within the last 15 minutes the thought came to mind. Why don't I swap out my 17 rd mag and put in my 30 rd mag at night for home defense. p-85 for those of you who want to know.

    Does anyone else do this or in general use a large cap mag for their home?

    Standard capacity mags for my HD weapons...

    since my primary HD weapon is a AR pistol, that means 20/30 round PMags.

    My primary home defense weapon is a Bushmaster Patrolman's Carbine with a 30 rd P-mag loaded with Winchester PDX-1. I think it's a good combination and it's my reason for owning an AR because the anti-gunners think I need a "reason" to own one.

    I bought several 25 and 30 round magazines for my P85/89 and PC9 before and during the 94 ban. Obviously they were aftermarket magazines and I found some of them to be less reliable than the factory 15 round magazines. The good ones I had hard chromed and I kept them (Still own the mags and guns), the less reliable ones were sold off. Not worth the trouble to tweak, repair, fuss at, or troubleshoot. I dislike the balance when they were in the handguns, they felt better in the carbine. If you had a reliable magazine (I found the 25s most relaible with 20 rounds, the 30s with 25 to 28 rounds) You could, but it's so awkward why bother?
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    I have a few 11 round extended magazines for the 1911. I have rarely ever even used them but, they are good quality magazines so I'm not sorry that I own them.
    They would throw me off when I practice reps so they stay on the shelf. Possibly some day they may come in handy.
