    Hey WA folks, do you know if there are any local laws restricting the number of rounds a clip can hold?

    Additionally, can I get some makes and models that can hold 16+ rounds? I hear Springfield has an XD that can hold 19 +1.

    Am I to assume that with a capacity that high I will only be looking at the 9mm flavor?

    I'm primarily a revolver guy (as far as hand guns go) so normally high capacity hand guns aren't that important to me, but I thought it would fun to get for the range.

    Your thoughts!

    Don't know about your laws, I'm sure others will chime in.

    You're not restricted to 9mm in a high cap at all. The xd holds 13 +1 in .45, and the new xdm holds more.

    As much as you can carry on your person and limited by the number of pockets to store the clips.

    Hell, I dont care for the fancy words like High capacity. It exceeds my capacity to count that high. I only hae 10 fingers and toes you know.

    There is no such animal as a "high cap mag".

    You have "designed capacity" (usually called simply "a magazine") and "legislated capacity" (for those poor folks in ban states).

    When you use the term "high cap mag" you're agreeing with the anti's choice of words.

    I submit the exact opposite is true. When you refuse to use "high cap mag" because it is also being used by anti's, you let the anti's win.

    Do you truly believe that if we lived in a world with no anti-gun sentiment that the term "high cap mag" would not be used? Just like any other product, manufacturers are going to label firearms and accessories of firearms with descriptive terms meant to sell the produts. If a manfacturer wants to sell an after-market magazine that has greater capacity than the magazine that comes standard with the gun, a natural descriptive term is "high capacity magazine."

    I have high caps and I have low caps but the cowboy hat my wife just bought me for my birthday is higher than any of my caps because it rubs the ceiling in the car.:what: Whatever the syntax some hold more than others. My caps and hat don't have to hold much; there ain't noth'en in my head.:D

    i believe the xdm is 19+1 in 9mm and 16+1 in .40s&w. There is also a cz of the same capacities (not being a cz guy i don't know which model off the top of my head)
    S&W M&P is 17+1 9mm and 15+1 in .40s&w (glock 17 and 22 would be the same)
    new Ruger SR9 is 17+1 in 9mm

    there are of course many, many more along the same capacities

    You are entirely correct.

    When you use the term "high cap mag" to describe a standard capacity magazine (whether it be 11 rounds or 100), you are vindicating the anti's agenda.

    The vendors who want to sell 200 round "joke" mags and call them "high capacity" are more than welcome to.

    The CZ SP-01 range comes with 19 round magazines. After market 26 round magazines also available if you really want.....:evil:

    Magazines in 16, 15 and 10 rounds available if you have to travel to a state with restrictions

    The SP-01 range come in all metal, polymer, match rigged, manual safety or de-cocker, if you want to move up to .40 caliber the capacity is 16 rounds.

    Oh....I love my SP-01................:D
