Carry options for NY's restricted to 7 rounds.....

Discussion in 'General Firearms Forum' started by JDSTG58, Jan 19, 2013.

  1. What every NYer needs to do is exercise their right to carry themselves and their tax dollars right out of that god forsaken place.

  2. All the more reason to TRAIN & PRACTICE:
    - to make every shot count
    - to do quick reloads

    If the BG let's you get to your 8th round, he'll probably give you time to reload as well.

  3. DARN!

    When fewer rounds are allowed, you gotta go for bigger.:supergrin:

  5. Might as well have 7 big bullets, some version of a 1911 in 45 acp.
    With ammo being restricted, if HP not available, or proven HP not available, 45 FMJ better than < 45

    And that law sucks.

    There are a lot of good ccw weapons that comply with the 7 round limit and a lot have been mentioned. Not that I approve the law or am in favor of it. The worst effect this law has is home defense.

    Let me propose this. The law addresses "magazines". What if a revolver held 10 rounds? would it be legal? I know Smith makes a 22lr in 10 round model. The 357mag come in up to 8 shot (as far as I know). I wonder if you could take a cylinder that size and get 10 shots of 327 federal magnum in there?

    If I understand the law correctly, a person can have up to a ten round magazine, but can't have any more than 7 rounds in that magazine. So is carrying in a 7+1 configuration OK?

    As far as carry pieces go, any of the Kahr pistols would work just fine. That's what I carry now and I'm not even under a magazine restriction... yet.

  8. From my reading it looks like revolvers do not have a capacity limit.

    You are free to choose to not comply. Then it is merely a risk vs. reward situation.
  11. No, the 10-rounders are ok to keep. Just can't put than 7 bullets in them. As if that makes sense :)

    I joined the NRA, have you yet?
  12. This law just sucks.....

    I have a Beretta 92 that I bought pre 1994. I also bought mags for it then. Now all I have is pre ban 15 rounders for it, and now I can't even buy reduced mags for it. This makes the gun a single shot.

    Take a look at the law! Those hi-caps are only good until 15 Jan 2014.
    After that date,.......they are illegal in NY!

  14. I guess I would carry something like this if I was a New


  15. I've read the laws.

    As I said above, the 11+ have to be gotten rid of, but the 10-rounders can be kept forever (unless they decide to change the law again a couple years from now).

    Please point to why you think the 10-rounders will have to go. This is important stuff, so I don't want to miss anything :)

  16. Don't even worry about it. By the time Cuomo gets done, you won't be able to carry anyway.
  17. I didn't think most anyone can carry in NY anyway. So that wont change,

  18. A pair of em!

    Whatever happened to that beast, I think I remember the Govt putting the hammer down on it right? :dunno:
  19. The next time a school shooting occurs in NY or nearby the next NY ban will probably require getting rid of those excessive 10 round magazines that are currently grandfathered. Be prepared to see "3 is enough."
    You can keep the 7 round mags but can't load more than 3 rounds in them.
  20. That's just NYC.... Outside the city there is hundreds of thousands of us with full carry.
