As much as I hate to ever agree with the people who are trying to restrict magazine capacity for “our safety”, it does still seem to me like a good point where an active shooter could possibly mess up under stress, despite their “test” showed it really doesn’t. Hardly a “real world” type test though when it comes to stress levels. Where this whole OMG BAN HIGH CAPACITY ASSAULT CLIPS thing gets retarded though, is why would someone who wanted to kill a large number of people even consider using limited capacity magazines? Exactly, they wouldn’t because there are (and forever will be) millions of regular capacity magazines available for all popular firearms. Oh wait though, you know what.. they might not use them though if they are illegal, because they don’t want the extra charges. *snicker*
10:44 – Start of the New York Reload test. hahah I loved the tossing of the revolvers; ban high capacity revolver holding bags!
When I saw the words “High Capacity” in the title I immediately checked the YouTube comments to see how many people were yelling at him for calling regular capacity “High Capacity”… turns out I didn’t see any haha.
My thoughts exactly on that “magic number” of 10 rounds… I’d love to hear the logic behind that number.
LOL “David Gregory wears makeup and has a spray on tan, and he was able to get his hands on an illegal magazine, so how hard to you think it would be for Pookie, Billy, Wid(?) and Jesus to get their hands on one if they wanted to?”
On thing I wonder, is have these people that are pushing for 10 round magazines never heard of reloading? Or is the next logical step just to make it harder to reload, such as the ridiculous California bullet button everywhere?
Dave Champion and Bill Carns illustrate the difference between a 17 round magazine and an 8 round magazine. The video clearly shows that the motivation behind such restrictive legislation is designed to limit Americans’ rights.
The point is CRIMINALS DON’T OBEY LAWS so what good is a ban going to do if the high capacity and regular capacity mags are still in existence.
The only small public benefit I can see coming from a shooter carrying a lower capacity magazine is there is a possibility they could fumble with it on a reload, which would create a window of opportinity to stop the threat.
If you can’t shoot a Glock 17, you aren’t going to be able to shoot a Glock 26. Giving the women the option of the G26 as their primary gun is a mistake if you ask me. The G26 is approximately 1.25″ shorter in height, which make make it a bit easier for some of them to hold, but the barrel length is around 1″ shorter on the G26 which isn’t a great when accuracy is paramount. I’d much rather see them train on both guns, and have the G26 as a backup. Another big downside is the fact that the standard capacity of the G26 is only 10 rounds, compared to 17 rounds for the G17.
From my personal experience, the G26 is much more susceptible to malfunctions; especially when it comes to limp wristing my full size Glocks are a lot more forgiving. Anyone else find this as well?
Finally, I could be wrong, but I doubt there are too many women out there that are thinking to themselves “I’d love to be a police officer… if only the guns held less ammo, and were a bit shorter for my little hands”
