    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 .

    Lots and lots of choices for 7 or fewer round CCW pistols in .380, 9mm, .40 & .45. I personally very rarely carry a gun that actually holds more than 7+1 (KT P3AT, 6+1; KT PF9, 7+1; S&W CS-45, 6+1, CA Bulldog .44, 5 rounds).

    I'd still be quite ticked if there were a law saying I couldn't, though.

    S&W Shield in 9mm or 40cal (9mm 7+1 with short mag, 40cal 7+1 with big mag)

    How about you file suit against the state instead?

    SCOTUS via Heller declared that arms in common use are protect under the 2A.

    You mean New York is getting the government New York City voted for. Probably half of their State legislature is made up of people representing New York City.

    It is just the type of factionalism which Madison said would not happen in Federalist #10

    If that's true that's an excellent suggestion!

    The best suggestion, though, is to leave that state now!

    I'll add another vote for a Kahr P9 or K9. Or you could go for a Commander sized 1911. Though in my experience the Kahrs are more reliable with hp ammo than 1911s.

    Don't discount a good .357 magnum either.

    THIS!

    1911, Kahr CW9/40/45, Kahr CM9/40/45 (soon to be released), XDs, Glock 36, any number of revolvers from Smith or Ruger, Ruger LC9/380....

    A lot of good options, but my nod goes to the Glock 36, closely followed by a 1911... Probably would opt for a Springfield, Colt, or Ruger.

    If I only get 7+1 rounds you can be darn sure they are gonna be .45acp. Thankfully I live where I can carry 16+1 still. Best of luck OP!

    1911, Kahr K/P/CW series and M&P Shield came readily to mind.

    If I were restricted to 7 rounds, I'd definitely get a single stack .45.

    I suggest the P220. Current mags are 8 rounds, just don't top it off when you load it. Older mags are 7.

    My best suggestion would be to move :p. If I were limited to 7 rounds I'd probably find a good revolver in the .357 flavor.

    If the government passed a law requiring us to wear our underwear on the outside, guess there'd be people asking for fashion tips.

    There's a time to strongly object. This absurd ruling looks like one to strongly object to in every way possible.
