    Kimber sells many firearms with 8 and 9 round magazines.

    I think it was written by someone with a serious Nagant revolver fetish.

    I legally bought a 10/22 10 round mag here last year, & im going to continue to use it, & if i have to load 7 rounds, i will,i doubt anyone else at the range will do the same.Can anyone imagine getting arrested for having even 8 rounds in a mag by mistake instead of 7? can this be real ?Boy if thats a crimminal offense that is pretty dam sad...

    I sugest all gun manufacturers who start making 7 round magazines paint "I Love New York" In big pink letters on each one.

    1911's is the reason for 7rds. The reason that they are so pouplar is from the 1994 AWB. Same mag restrictions but on national level.

    Oh I can think where the magic number originated, but it wouldn't be polite to verbalize my theory :evil:

    I think he counted his fingers. Either that or what grade he was in when he stopped learning.Or he has a new 40 shield, or 45XDS.

    Ding Ding! We have a winner! I can see those guys digging out their own carry pieces to count rounds.

    Their logic is simple and well thought out which is to eliminate as many guns as possible....

    Time to turn in your pee shooter Glocks and pick up a DEagle. The standard mag for them is 7rds. :D

    Can't do in NY, Desert eagles were just banned. (too heavy of a firearm, it meets the ban criteria).

    Glocks are also banned (meets the criteria of being the same model as a full auto weapon, the Glock 18.)

    Springfield XD-S .45ACP. Mine works nicely with 5 in the magazine, and one in the pipe. Oh, I have 6 mags for it. We don't play that game yet here in AR, and it is what it is.

    They probably looked in the Midway catalog and saw NOBODY makes 7 round mags or smaller. Except for a handful of guns, less than 5% of what's out there.

    Andrew Cuomo once shot off 3 toes with his shotgun and can only count to 7.

    I know two guys, one a retired LEO and the other my brother-in-law, who own pre-ban Glock 19s. They have the original 15-round mags that are now banned. They do not own any 10-round mags, which they are now prohibited from purchasing in NY. Unless Glock makes a NY 7-round mag, they are out of luck.

    Cuz the Garand clip holds 8?

    They're not idiots, they know exactly what they're trying to do, they just lie about the reason.

    Here's the logic behind the new 7 round limit:

    Question: How do we go about making the previously compliant guns already out there illegal?

    Answer: Change the legal magazine capacities to a lower number.

    There is no other logic behind it.

    They succeeded with a 10 round limit and established that they have to power to dictate the capacity of magazines. They reduced it by 30% with the NYS SAFE Act. This is now solidified in the minds of law makers: they can change capacity at will. What do you want to bet they reduce it to five or six in a few years? Nobody needs a revolver that holds more than five rounds. The average confrontation requires only 2.x rounds, so three should be sufficient...

    Cutting it down to seven makes a lot of handguns not NY Compliant. That is the whole goal is to basically ban most handguns.

    I would speculate it comes from revolvers, shotguns, and 1911's with less than 8rd capacity.

    If you own a Savage Mark II,501,504 and 900 series bolt action repeater in .22 or .17 rimfire rifle AND you live in NY State you can buy 5 shot magazine .Therey`re pricey though-$20 +$6 shipping direct from Savage.I found one at a local shop for about $15.00.
    Not saying this is an ideal fix, but a 5 shot clip should keep the ______ s ( you fill in the blank )away, at least for a while.
