    It is analogous to 3 shot limit for migratory birds and wildfowl.

    The ten round magazine limit was kept in place in NY and California after the 1994 ban expired. This means that any magazine that can contain more than ten rounds was not legal for sale.

    The new ban is seven rounds, effectively outlawing previously sold magazines that held ten rounds and were legal under the old law.

    Sue the state.

    Illegal seizure of property without compensation.

    There is no way this silly "one year to sell your magazines" clause can hold up in court.

    My understanding of the law is as follows:

    1) You have a year to get rid of your >10 round magazines.
    2) You may KEEP your 10 round magazines, if you possess them before the law takes effect (60 days from signing). You may only load them with seven rounds.
    3) Your 10 round magazines are not transferable within the state, and any new guns you buy are limited to seven rounds.

    So... get a couple of 10 round glock mags, right now. Just remember to load them with seven.

    I have decided on a Glock 36.
    I have a 1911A1 but don't feel about carrying it, as it's an Ithaca 1943.
    Great suggestions, thank you!

    My Kahr K9 has served me extremely well for the past 15 years. I have long since forgotten the round count, but I am on my 3rd Wolff recoil spring.

    The K9 is a 7+1 pistol with DOA trigger and designed from the ground up to use +P ammunition (which was Corbon's 115gr JHP when I bought mine in '97).
    Though my primary carry these days are the M&P40c, I do on occasion carry the svelte K9.

    With decent ammunition, the 9mm should be every bit as effective as the larger cartridges if on minds proper placement.

    Welcome to NY, lucky for me I carry a SW model 60 and my wife carries a kahr p380 6+1 It may be time to consider a move.

    I've really been wanting the XDs in .45 since it was announced, but while I was on the waiting list I went ahead and purchased an LC9. It conceals like nobody's business (which is perfect... because that's exactly what it is), and isn't offensive at all in recoil. I don't shoot +p ammo in it, but it's great for what it is.

    If i was limited to 7+1, I would go with a Kahr CW45

    XDs .45. Standard is a 5 round mag, bu there are 7 round mags available. If I were stuck in New York, that would be what I would get.

    I doubt the interpretation that you can keep your 10 round magazine and only load 7 after the year is up.

    Glock and others were quick enough to bring out 10 round mags for the previous ban, I think they will supply this one. Of course I think they ought to apply it to all customers, NYPD included.

    Incorrect, the magazine ban went into effect the 15th. They must comply by March (60 days)

    The year only allows for the registration of AR's that the people plan on keeping.

    They can Keep their 10rders. They cannot buy more or even sell the ones they have in state. All pre-ban hi cap mags were also banned on the 15th.

    Infuriating beyond description.

    There have been several recommendations for Kahrs in 9mm, including the CW9 and K9. I don't own a 9mm but I do carry a K40, and it is absolutely amazing to me what you can learn to do with these solid little guns.

    The Kahrs are fairly expensive, especially the all-stainless K series. But, they are little wonders of the machinist's art, look great, feel great, shoot dead nuts, and aren't difficult to learn to shoot quickly.

    I feel it takes a good bit of work to get proficient with a small compact auto, and one that has a DAO action. But the journey is worth it I think, especially when 40SW is so well-managed in such a small package.

    But, for the one-round higher capacity and same fine weapon, I say you really must at least pump a few rounds through one of the Kahr 9s. For one round less but IMO a no more difficult to shoot model, K40. If you just HAVE to go tiny, MK9 or MK40, but IMO the K series is small, but not too small--it's the right size for a super concealable.

    I've heard nothing but good stuff about the M&P Shield, although I have not handled or fired one myself. I do own 2 other M&Ps, but neither would qualify under your state's mind-numbingly idiotic, pointless and enraging restriction.

    Best wishes!

    My understanding of the the new NYS laws is :

    -effective immediately all mag more than 10 rounds are illegal (including pre-ban) and you have 1 year to turn them in, destroy them, or sell out of state

    -non-preban hi-cap mag were already illegal here

    -10 round mags remain legal if the are PERMANENTLY fixed to 7 rounds (A spacer would not qualify if I read it right)

    -assault rifle definition now is down to 1 "feature". Therefore a detachable mag plus anything else, such as pistol grip is illegal unless own prior to law passing

    -if assault rifle was owned prior it will need to be registered within 1 year and the gun is non-transferable

    There were other laws passed as well, but I am too upset at this point and my tears are obscuring the keyboard

    XDs with an extended magazine. 7+1 capacity in .45 acp. Carries like a dream do to the slim size. Shoots easy. Accurate as hell for a 3.3" bbl. Well worth the money in my book. Carries great in a hybrid IWB holster.

    I think only Manufactory can recall all magazines and PERMANENTLY fix this problem or design new mags, Otherwise. All these kind of sold guns have to put in house and can’t be legal used .
