    Florida going to 10 round limit?

    My Glock 19 has a 16 round loadout. Just recently found a pristine/new G19 magazine! Replaced the one in the pistol, so nice to have that installed.

    My spare Mag. I always carry, a G17 one. Why? For all the reasons noted!
    Plus a bright SurFire flashlight. All on the belt.

    The extra 17 rounds? NATO Hardball. Sub gun ammo. Might be shooting into a vehicle? Who knows. Leaking from back and front? Can't be bad.

    Purchased a new pistol two days ago. A Glock 43X, Blue box. Why? Well, Murphy was an optimist! The chance of a 10 round limit passing some time in the future, is possible. By that time extra rounds magazines, 12/13? as spares will be made, if not allowed two extra magazines make 31 rounds a good thing.

    Even though you know the reality of what is happening, an attack, a lot of times the "This can not be happening to me!" cause's a freeze! No life-saving movement. It might help if you growing up in rough places, and fighting a lot, might help with the action, following recognition being natural. But now, an extra tool, my Glock 19 might be a better solution.

    My Wife of 25 years is cool under pressure. She has been in the past. So she will follow my lead. Being watchful, never intoxicated, not ever trying any "Recreational? Drugs" in my life, being now 83 YOA. And intending to live longer! Shooting some low life youth, will not be a problem, faced with a definite threat. Other than that, going about our lives in peace and harmony.

    Probably not.

    Although 20 years ago I would have said the same thing about Colorado.

    Couple points

    1. FL is going to go CA very soon ..I will bet in the next 10-15 years or less ..Prob nothing big at first red flag stuff and UBC etc ..But they are going for the mag ban and AWB asap ..It is like CO etc NY are pouring and out voting the locals ..It is going to happen
    2. I would have way more then that stock away ..I go with a at min 10 + per rifle and pistol unless they are crazy pricy
    3. 9MM Nato is not sub gun ammo by far .Just a above normal line 9mm round made to get a little more omp out of a gun as they could only use non HP ammo it is not even +P per SAMMI spec.. True sub gun ammo would be the Imi black tips , the L1A1 or such round ( that is not handgun safe ) , the Isreal and Mid east 9mm loads and the old Rem 9mm loads ..That is true sub ammo most of which will tear a gun apart they often print on the box not safe for handguns and the hirtenburg loads was recal by the gov as it was so over loaded that pretty much no hadguns could fire it without breaking or blowing up rumor was it was made for mp5 and the like but that is internet rumorss ( most of it AP and steel cored ammo and not legal to import anymore )..the Nato load is fine for a little more omp but I would go for true sub gun or the pentrator loads if that is a worry

    You could be right about 10-15 years but while there are bills in the legislature to do this I'd be really surprised if they get past committee, if they even get that far. It's amazing the bill that the idiot dems will introduce and not just gun bills. They are all a bunch of total lame brains.

    With our new Gov, we might see a law requiring that gun owners carry at least one extra mag.

    I hope you don't get californicated there, Scouse. It's no way to run a state for sure.

    I am one of those "idiot dems". I carry. Perhaps that makes me something worse, a man with no "country", I don't know.

    These arbitrary pistol restrictions to 10 bullets reach down well into the range of what might be needed in the event of a well planned home invasion by several thugs. I live in a state that doesn't have that but if I lived in one that did it would cause me to have two guns at hand instead of one. I guess because the politicians have gotten away with passing these restrictions they are being done because they can be done.

    Show me the statistical proof that forcing law abiding citizens to have their weapons neutered will change the overall stats of deaths by violence in this country and I might buy into it.

    As an idiot dem, I do subscribe to things like background checks and fully funding mental health programs. But until bad people can't get guns, leave my self-defense weapons alone!

    I disagree with your claim of being an "idiot dem." Maybe you are a dem, but it sounds like you're still pro-2A. However, the Democrat political party platform is rabidly anti-gun, and they're coming after yours just like the rest of ours even if you are a member of their party or a supporter. The D party continues to further entrench as the party against gun rights; how much that matters to you relative to other issues is of course a personal matter.

    Well then I guess its all about priorities.. If you are a liberal, and believe in socialism, vote democrat, because THAT is the party platform. No escaping it.

    Same thing for brutally killing a perfectly formed, living human baby ,crying, and full of life -a foot from its birth canal, cord still attached , because the mother doesn't want it for ANY reason at all , and wants it gone, out of sight.. thats the law here in my state, and it was voted in by democrats to a thunderous standing ovation in the state house.

    Thats the modern democrat party..

    If you vote for democrats often enough, and the numbers of leftists keeps on increasing as it has been, your guns and mine WILL be confiscated.. I am close to 65 and fully expect to see it before I become stardust.. That is surely their platform nationally, no question, and they get closer each day...

    If you vote for any democrat anywhere, any time, you simply have no concern for the second amendment , in any way shape or form, because that IS their platform,, rigid,oppressive, gun, ammo, and carry permit control- to the point of confiscation...

    I speak from experience once again.. while a state representative here in NY, Kirsten Gillbrand was a Pro 2a, conservative, anti immigration "Blue Dog", old school Democrat in her conservative upstate district. Elected by mostly Republicans.

    Instantly upon her election to the US Senate however, she completely disavowed those positions, apologized for them on national media and now loudly espouses the standard radical leftist ideology- gun grabbing, pro infanticide, welfare for the unwilling to work, free everything for everyone- the standard political viewpoints of eurosocialism .

    Once she was free of a conservative district, and got elected in a state wide election by NYC and is now safe forever, the true colors were shown with NO hesitation.. She went from pro 2A conservative while representing a conservative district, to a radical progressive gun grabber instantly upon her election as US Senator... Don't take my word for it, check out her bio on wikipedia...

    THAT is what Democrats do... always.

    If you are really a pro 2A Democrat, and vote for ANY Democrat, you ARE 100% certainly casting a vote to have your guns confiscated, and your second amendment rights revoked.. If you doubt that, I feel sorry for you... bob

    Blacktip Israeli 9mm ammunition? For 16 years, I rented an indoor range to El Al armed people. The reason, the free use of Police Ranges? Was fraught with liberal Police watchers!

    I can talk about these dedicated, true believers in self-defence, now. It is many years since I last sat in at one of their training sessions. 2001? They had just converted to Glock 17 pistols (with 10 round magazines, Canada don't you know!) prior to that, Browning Hi-powers. Carried in inside the pants just behind the hip holsters. No round in the chamber! That funny draw, cock, step left, and crouch know all over the world. Round up the spout, when Glocks became the issued weapon. Started in New York City.

    They still supplied there own ammunition, black tip! In 32 round cardboard boxes, empty boxes ripped up and consumed by fire in our still working stove. I did not feel this had any more recoil than NATO ammo?

    One of the exercises, single shooter, on command, draw and fire three rounds at a SAS Canada target, from 15M, run at the target, suspended on a wire, foot slap stop (mimicking slippy ground of an Air Port) and hit a 4" ballon, taped to the concrete range surface. Below the target! "No terrorist left behind?"

    These young men stayed for two years, then returned home. The Consular Officers carried .22 Berettas. Lived in their Office desks. This infomation would never have been mentioned at that time, Israle is still our friend is she not?

    Once you have been checked out to fly on an El Al flight, you are in the system, walk right through, next time.

    What makes you an "idiot dem"? What policies of the modern democratic party do you support?

    IMO just because you support background checks doesn't make you a dem. Do republicans not support mental health programs? I'm all for getting people help if they need it.

    If you support the modern democratic party's direction (socialism) then you probably are a "idiot dem" as you say but if you don't, maybe you should identify as moderate or independent.

    Trying not to get too political as it's not allowed but continuing to support the party that is actively trying to take YOUR GUNS just doesn't make sense.

    Universal Background checks are a form of gun registration and must be stopped at all costs. The Nazis did it in WW2 to the Jews and we all know how that turned out. If you support this, turn in your concealed weapons license because you are hurting us all in the long run. Our current background check system is so full of holes, convicted felons buy guns with ease. Another law will not make it better.

    There is nothing in the air right now about limiting mag capacity to ten rounds in Florida. Zip. With Desantis as Governor (very pro 2a) I doubt the Dems can muster much damage on his watch.
    And you are correct, you are one of those idiot Dems. There is nothing that the Democratic Party represents right now that is even normal. Weird is a better word. So as not to turn this into a political post, I will stop there.
    Give to them according to their deeds and according to the wickedness of their endeavors; give to them according to the work of their hands; render to them their deserts. Psalm 28:4
