What do you need more than 10 shots for?
Perhaps that is best answered with another question. What is the benefit of depriving me of more than 10 rounds? A magazine change takes about 1.5
seconds, as I've come to know by practice on a 'tactical course' nearby. That's just a set up where you simulate shooting in a defense
situation...nothing special or scary to make a big deal about, but changing magazines at least once is necessary and adds an element to challenge and
improve. So...will a second and a half in the middle of 20 rounds or 3 seconds during 30 make any difference to ANYONE in a criminal shooting? I dare
say I wouldn't appreciate the difference on the receiving end of it.
On the other hand, it pisses me off to no end that they figure for no above benefit and little more than their own political point scoring and
grandstanding, I'll be made to blister my thumb on the range in reloading every couple minutes on my 10-22 or whatever else I decide I want to shoot
which is designed for more than 10,
As it is, I have plenty of magazines for what I own and usually load them all up as part of the prep to heading out to the range, well in advance.
That's realistic with 50rd magazines on the .22 and 15-30rd magazines on whatever else. It makes for a pleasant day and I'm not having to screw with
loose ammunition and reloading at the table out there. ...but noooo... they need points for the evening news, so anything ELSE I buy sounds like it'll
be as much a hassle to shoot as any joy now. Losers.. to a person up there.
