9mm guys, will you switch in a post-ban era?

    So, a majority of the debate in 9mm vs 45acp comes to capacity vs power. I know there are other arguments, but that's what I hear the most. So my question is, if a 10 round magazine limit is instated, will you switch to 40sw or 45acp or stay with 9mm in handguns that can hold 10 in either caliber?

    I am kind of leaning that, if I can only have 10, I might as well have the biggest 10 I can.

    You make a good question to ponder. I dont think many would change over but some would consider/look at it. Plus are they gonna ban new sales or completely restrict 10+ mags. Heck some companies dont even make 10 rounders but may have to soon. Everyone is anxious about this possible AWB.

    In the last ban people were able to keep their "hi-caps" if they were bought before the ban.

    I will have plenty of hi-cap mags so it's really not going to be a factor. Now if I were just starting out and was limited to 10 I would probably go with .45 in a full size gun, but the other calibers would still have a place in subcompacts.

    Probably grandfather in stuff, but with a no-sale and no-will clause. And if you shoot em, mags wear out, break, start to malfunction. I am sure repair parts will be illegal as well.

    I've been thinking about this the last couple of days and came up with this answer as well.

    Living in Kommifornia, we have been stuck w/ 10+1 for some time. My XD45c is the same size as a G19, same round count out here. When, not if, we return to the AWB & 10rd mags, you'll see a significant drop in full size guns being sold. It happened last time. That was when the compct boom started. Why carry a G17 w/ 10+1, when you can carry a G26, etc. If you can shoot a larger caliber, round count will no longer be a deciding factor.
    IMO, start planning for it, the AWB will be a permanent law next year. I hate to say I told you, but for all those that just had to vote their conscious instead of Romney. PBO was just waiting for something like this to happen so they could capitalize on it & they will. So now we get a more severe gun control & a crappy Euro style economy. Thank a liberal or libertarian for this one.:steamed:

    I'll stick with 9mm and a G26 most of the time.

    I've got plenty of magazine for my Glock 19 & 20 and my Beretta 92FS.
    If I had to, I'd carry my GP-100 with extra speed loaders. See the sheeples eyes pop open when they see that strapped to my waist! :supergrin:

    They don't make extended mags for my .25 cal. Raven, so, I'm good to go as is.

    Having lived through the '94 AWB, I have acquired several lifetimes worth of 17 round G17 magazines and will be sticking with the 9mm for the foreseeable future regardless of what the jerks in DC do to us.

    Yes, indeed. When the new AWB gets passed, my 32-ounce G17 will get replaced by a 48-ounce Springfield Armory M1911A1 .45 pistol with nine rounds of +p 255gr LSWC at 860 FPS. I'll have to wait another ten-years for the AWBII to expire.
