Capacity

People say to me Hey, how could you possibly ever need more than a ten round magazine?.

I say I dunno, maybe if my home was invaded by 16 people?

    And people ask why you need a Beta Mag.

    (actually a bunch of PMAGs is a better idea)

    Markie Marxist sez: “How are our Marxist/warrior/hero/criminals supposed to catch their victims while reloading if we don’t limit their victims magazine capacity? And how are are we supposed to get the legal limit for magazine capacity down to six and eventually one or none if we don’t start with ten? Limiting magazine capacity won’t get every law-abiding gun owner killed, but it will eliminate that percentage of them that get killed while trying to reload because they ran out of ammo. It’s a start.”

    Stack ’em like cordwood in the doorway.

    I’m just curious as to just how wimpy the criminals were since it took 16 of them to steal a cell phone. Or are the criminals adopting police raid tactics. That must have been one sweet cell phone.

    And remember you must be a good host! Don’t cheap out on your guests by only giving one bullet per unlawful entry!

    It is not need that drives my desire for normal capacity magazines, it is simply that I want them.

    I want to be able to be a good host (per above), offering each invader multiple opportunities to stop bullets.

    I think it was Jeff Cooper who pointed out that as Americans, need is not a consideration, as we free individuals can do something, or pretty much anything, merely because we want to try it.

    16 people for a cell phone? Unbelievable!

    @JKB:
    That was a ‘show of force’. It is a gang tactic to invade an area and demonstrate that this is their turf and that they have the man power to enforce their claim.

    The cell phone was just a token to serve as a reminder. It used to be tennis shoes.

    Nowadays, however, depending upon whose cell phone they get, they might be able to determine the network of the competition and repeat the tactic on them.

    With regard to the number of rounds in a magazine, my reply is; “Because I might not have time to grab spare rounds or the extra mag.”

    Hm…16 people to steal a cellphone. Sounds like a certain group to me…

    T-Mobile?

    I hate to be the party-pooper, but isn’t it more likely that we’re talking about a burglary ring that’s getting busted? The story’s kind of bare-bones; my guess is that 1-3 people broke into the place and after getting caught, someone flipped and revealed a large organization.

  11. Kim du Toit Says:

    If sixteen people invaded my home, that would equate to about four invaders per armed family member. I think we could cope with our pitfully-inadequate 8-round and 10-round mags. Okay, maybe we couldn’t Mozambique them, but certainly, double-taps would be the order of the day.

  12. Brad Says:

    Of course if you take the anti-gunners seriously about ten round magazines, the logic of that limitation inevitably leads to banning possession of more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

    I figure it’s MY home, and if I wanna shoot the thug 16 times (or 25, or 50) it shouldn’t be anyone’s business but mine, so long as I don’t endanger innocents, and clean up my own mess. 😀
