Okay, so I started the thread in General Glocking about the practicality of a 33rd mag, which was actually a huge success as far as participation and information / opinion sharing. I ended up picking one up, based on the "have it an not need it" mentality which goes with carrying a firearm in the first place, not to mention wearing a seatbelt, locking my doors, paying for health insurance, etc. After previoualy rearranging my pocket organization (I EDC a lot of stuff in my pockets, lol), I can pretty easily carry it in my offhand front pocket, and still carry the spare G26 mag in the IWB pouch I have for it. I then realized it is actually surprisingly easy to carry concealed in place of that spare G26 mag, which would give me easier access and better retention than in the pocket, and obviously more rounds than the G26 mag. Since it isnt any more difficult for me to carry the stick mag, I have kindof conaidered doing it. However, my only remaining concern is image, regardless of how justified I was in reloading in the first place. The one particular scenario I mean is if, for example, the gunfight goes on long enough that I empty my initial 13 rounds, and so I lock in the 33rder. At some point before I empty the mag, the enemy is subdued to the point where all I have to do is hold them at gunpoint until the police arrive. Assuming it is otherwise a good shoot, how big of a legal issue could it be for the police to report that I had a 33rd mag locked in the gun whenever they arrived? I am honestly thinking that it shouldnt be much different than carrying a couple 17rd mags, though I know the idea of extra-capacity mags is somehow terrifying to some people, and that is my real concern. Specific cases would be preferred, but any experience or anecdotes about someone having these kinds of issues. Whether someone got in trouble for carrying several spare mags, or for using an aftermarket high-cap mag (like a drum in a Saiga or AR), it would all be good to know! Thanks. Wanna kill these ads?
