    In the middle of the night the State has made it a crime to carry my G19 for self protection. I obeyed New York's laws so carefully that I paid $89 for a preban no drop magazine and can no longer use it.

    In order to carry legally I need to buy a new handgun with a maximum magazine capacity of 7. Does anybody have a good suggestion? I would just as soon carry a compact with more stopping power than 9mm, but 9mm is the smallest I would go.

    Scary stuff here in the Empire state, even shotguns with pistol grips are a no no. Oh yea, BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR AMMUNITION:cuss:

    I thought 10 rounders were okay as long as you loaded 7?

    I haven't read the law, but I'm pretty sure you can still use your existing mags, but cannot load them with more than 7 rounds. So you don't need new mags, just need to be able to count, as another member posted in a similar thread.

    Thank God I don't live there...

    I would look at the Walther PPS and the just-announced Springfield Armory XDs chambered in 9mm if I needed a NY-legal carry gun that still had some oomph behind it.

    Good luck!

    Any of the 1911 family would be fine. I carry a Govt model all the time.

    How many rounds is the new XDs? I know there's a 7-round magazine option for the .45.

    I have a GLock 36 .45 cal 6 + 1 that I am very happy with. It is my summer carry and very concealable. I think my Taurus PT1911 has a larger recoil than my smaller G36.

    Only for the next year. After that magazines that can hold more than 7 are a no-no.

    Question: Is the gun itself illegal because it CAN ACCEPT a magazine that can hold more than 7 or is it ok if you put a magazine that can only hold 7 in it?

    BTW, you can get a P64 for a 6 +1 pocket gun, in 9x18 Makarov.

    +1 on the CW9. 7 round mag. Very slim and easy to conceal. Oh yeah, shoots like a dream too.

    Oddly enough, the M1911 magazine, as designed by JMB holds exactly 7 rounds (although nowadays you can get reliable 8-round magazines.)

    The M1911 with it's thin, flat profile makes an ideal carry gun -- I've carried one for a great many years. And the .45 ACP is nothing to sneeze at.

    We do have some other states in the Union you might be interested in, though....

    Kahr P9 or K9 would be my top choice for a 7+1 carry pistol.

    Sig 239 in .40 S&W is a 7 + 1 gun....( I think its one of your best - and least expensive options )!

    Commander or Officer sized 1911 ...at least in .45 acp is 7 + 1 ...like this one from Wilson Combat - is what I would probably do, if I was you / because I'm a 1911 guy, and I carry a full sized CQB now.

    ---------------
    ( All 1911's that I know of in 9mm are 9 + 1 , most 5" 1911's are 10 + 1 in 9mm ).... so I think those are out.

    But you still have a lot of options in my view...

    ive heard some say they will load up all 17 or whatever and if they had to use the gun theyd toss the rest of the rounds in the magazine before the cops got there and if they used more than seven rounds the empty magazine in their pocket...would explain it...

    i dont know, new york is getting the government they voted for.

    Stop supporting the morons in your state government, who hate you and your family, and move. Wyoming is a good choice.

    A 1911, or a J frame revolver if you're open to wheelguns.

    I'd go with a Colt Lightweight Commander XSE in .45 ACP. Nice, shootable package, and fairly easy to carry due to alloy frame and slightly shorter slide.
