    And it seemed that when capacity was limited, people tended to gravitate towards larger calibers.

    Also, service sized guns like the G17/22 ceased to make sense for carry, and the G26/27 became very popular.

    As for me, then and now, with an autoloading pistol, any capacity issue can be solved in a second with a spare mag.
    But for the most part, itís not something I place a priority on.

    But like others, I want the choice.
    I have a pet theory that the 94 AWB caused the resurgence in the 1911ís popularity for those very reasons...

    That, and the .45GAP was Glock's gamble that it wouldíve been continued in '04...

    As I carry an 8+1 1911, it matters not a twit to me.

    No, not personally. I do support having the option of more quantity, though. The Government should not be able to tell me what/how many rounds to carry.

    If I were limited to 10 rounds or less I would carry either my Ruger SP101 .357 magnum or my Taurus PT145 10 rounds .45 acp.

    NO! Already carrying .41 mag., 10 mm, & .45 acp daily. Not the type to think: I'VE GOT TO HAVE OVER 10 ROUND MAG'S. Caliber & shot placement OVER "high capacity mag's", (what ever that is! )

    ...Especially since nobody seems to be able to regulate how many rounds the BGs have in their magazines.

    (I wonder why that is.)

    100% against any kind of magazine limit. Never made sense to me. But if it was imposed, I wouldn't be affected. I carry 5rd revolvers and 6+1 autos.

    I would probably stick to single stacks and revolvers. I have several of each.

    My USP Compact in .45 would start looking good.

    It depends, Light carry for me is a 442 snubbie, and when I work it's a commander 1911; so the direct answer is no. However, I do like my Glock 19 and I see it as useless (compared to the 1911) if it only has 10 rounds in it. As soon as laws pass concerning magazine size...semi auto handguns will be next on the list.

    Viney, I thinks itís because I allowed myself to sleep in a bit on a gray morning and Iím just into my first cup of coffee. Iím feeling melancholy. The notion of them going after semi autos made me think ď yeah, but it better not include .38 Super Commanders cause thatís crossing the lineĒ. I can pretty much guarantee that they wonít make a 1911 distinction between that configuration and all others, so I stand for keeping all of them above board and legal. After one more cup o joe Iíll be less peculiar......

    Interesting comment on the Glock 19. Iím not a Glock guy and Iím really not a 9mm guy, but I keep threatening myself to get a Glock 19. I guess every motherís son should try one. But with a capacity cap of 10.....yeah, I agree. Throw it out, itís lost a lot of significance. Interesting notion.

    I was thinking about this last night...and I realized that this factor actually did greatly influence my choice for my first handgun.

    I was at a gun show during the height of the AWB; I had $500, I wanted my first handgun...Iíd looked at stores, handled a few, had gotten a few friends' input, and Iíd come down with 3 options...a .357 revolver (Ruger GP100 or S&W 686...Pythons were just out of my reach at the time), a 1911 in .45, or a HK USP in any caliber.

    Well...I found a few examples of all of them...I decided I was leaning more auto than revolver, though. My buddy who was with me was a bit of a 1911 guy, and none of the ones in my price range would get the nod from him.

    But there were two used USP'sóone 9mm, and one .45. Both just over my budget...I decided Iíd stretch, but...how much; the .45 was, iirc, $50 more than the 9mm. The deciding factor was the fact that both were 10 round capacity...and if it's the same capacity, having bigger bullets just made more sense to me...and my buddy concurred.

    So, I got the .45.

    So, I guess if I was back in that same situation...I canít say for certain that it wouldnít influence my choice again.

    I always carry at least one extra mag, no matter the rounds per mag. As I get older though, a lighter gun sounds more appealing.

    No. I currently front pocket carry Boberg 9mm which is 7+1, and two extra mags in back pocket.
