I mean, you're not gonna stick it into your EDC, are you? You're gonna play with it, right? If you want it, go for it and have fun!
But it's the kind of thing you "want", not "need". That's all.
I offer a Reginald Denny-based scenario. You are in your car, radio off, and the world erupts around you. The mob tries to enter your car, but seeing your Glock dissuades their efforts
Your Glock has saved you from an initial beating. But.then you realize you are are still in the middle of a widespread riot, your car can easily become disabled, and the authorities have abandoned the area. That clumsy-length mag would look pretty good at.that moment, and carrying it in the car is easy.
