    I have three carry guns that have seven-round magazines. Two are Kel-Tecs (PF9 and P32), and the third is a Bersa Thunder 380.

    You do not have to get rid of currently owned 10 round magazines in NYS. You have a year to get rid of any magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. You can only load any magazine with 7 rounds. Jeesh.

    Seems that you have a year to move out of the Com Bloc and to real America.

    As others have stated a 1911 would be good. My 9mm Shield holds 7+1 as well. XDs, the Kahr guns, the compact P220. I'm sure there are other great guns I didn't think of.

    If I read the law right 10 round mags have to be modified to only hold 7 rounds. You could probably put a small block inside the mag spring on 10 rounders to make them legal. I have seen where there is a lawyer looking for people to be named in a lawsuit against the state over the required turning in of normal capacity mags. He is trying to make it class action.

    +1 for the Kahr pistols. I have a PM9 with 6 and 7 round mags. It is the only pistol I could find that I like that is smaller than the Glock 26 I use to have. I miss that gun. The Kahrs are basically a single stack Glock.

    You might want to consider a 686+ revolver, saving yourself the problem of having to dump your 7 round mags when your Loonytunes Legislature goes to 5 round mags...

    I carried full-sized, steel 1911s off and on for 30+ years. Changed over to Glocks less than a year ago. The G36 is a good-shooting gun, and conceals well. My primary is a G30, which I really love shooting, and it fits my hand better. If California follows NY's lead, I'll be looking to mod the G30s mags - but I doubt CA will follow NY.

    I'm not familiar with handgun laws for NY - do you have an "approved" list of handguns, or just specs it has to meet?

    BTW, if possible, shoot whatever model you are considering before you buy. The Ruger LC9 my wife wanted turned out to be the only pistol I've sold since I gave up my FFL. Accurate enough, and very slim, but not fun to shoot!

    Might as well buy a Kimber or Remington 1911 and support NYS gun makers.

    You don't need a new magazine or gun, you need a new zip code. Vote with your feet and tax dollars and leave!

    My suggestion is to ge the hell out of that area before they make a single shot only law and make nearly every gun owner in the state a criminal.

    The old law was 10 rounds, the new law is 7. Why? Because they can. Three fewer rounds will make the majority of semi-automatic firearms illegal and that is the only reason for this ban.

    Living here in the increasingly Sunny South, wife and I will likely not have to face the 7+1 situation. But we did discuss it.

    It that were to become and issue, we'd move to our two Ruger KP90s with seven round magazines.

    We also discussed another 1911

    And we discussed revolvers; easy switch over there too. All those old speed loaders would start getting used all over again; that may happen anyway.

    As Thunder already mentioned here are more details that should (IMO) interest you, since you have a year I would see how this goes (it IS Unconstitutional on it's face btw)

    Lawyer Jim Tresmond, Attorney in Buffalo, New York. Attorney phone is (716) 202-4301, successfully represented clients in the past on Second Amendment issues in NYS Supreme Court. This case is pro-bono for all the gun owners of New York.

    According to Mr. Tresmond the new ban is illegal as it is an ex-facto law taking away previously owned property and he intends to file this action in Federal Court. We are looking for as many as possible to add to CLASS ACTION CASE: SEND Your Name and EMAIL ADDRESS, Physical Address and phone number to: psacco1twcny.rr.com

    I do not think they would consider that as following the law. For example, it's not ok to just load three into shotgun with five shot capacity and go duck hunting. A magazine plug has to be installed.

    Can anyone explian what that mean " limit 10 round magazine"
    in 1994 assult weapon ban plan?
    Does "limit 7" mean that you can't own a gun with a maganize which can be loaded over 7 round" or you can't legal load your magazine over 7 round" ?

    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.

    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.
