Then would a full size magazine in a compact be considered high capacity?

That was not an issue back in the first AWB. Something more to consider this time around.

To slightly modify William Shakespeare - "That they're mad, ’tis true. Tis true, ’tis pity, And pity ’tis ’tis true... ". And let's add: Joseph Marie Comte de Maistre: "Every country has the government it deserves". WE have let this happen over time.

I think this is a hell of a lot closer to the truth that anyone would be willing to admit.

High or low is subjective or relative to a situation.

If there's not enough, it's low.

If there's enough, it's not high. It's just enough.

For me, 30 round rifle magazine or 15 round pistol magazines are NOT "high cap." 30 round rifle magazine is just 30 round rifle magazine. 15 round pistol magazine is just 15 round pistol magazine.

I like 20~30 round rifle magazine for 5.56mm or higher caliber, but not any higher capacity. Not because I think more rounds are bad or too high of a round count, but it would make the rifle weight too much for good handling.

"High capacity magazine/clip" and "assault weapon" are terms of the left.

I only own magazines that were designed for the pistols and rifles I use them in. Now if I were to modify them in some way to accept more rounds than they were designed for, they might become "high capacity," but now they are all standard capacity. Now if I am forced to use magazines that hold fewer rounds than what the pistol or rifle was designed for, I call those "restricted capacity." The only reason I would be using those is because government has in some way restricted my freedom and liberty, whether it is through magazine bans, hunting regulations, or firearm design restrictions.

Similarly, I don't own any "assault weapons." I own several ARs, AKs, a SCAR, and other black rifles, but I have never "assaulted" anyone with them, nor do I intend to. On the other hand, every year people are "assaulted" far more frequently with baseball bats, kitchen knives, cars, beer bottles, rocks, fists, feet, etc. than with firearms. The term "weapon" has a lot more to do with a person's intent than the actual object used to commit the "assault." I've bought maybe 1 or 2 firearms with the intent that they will be weapons - and only to serve as defensive weapons. The others have all been bought for recreational shooting or collecting.

I think we need to all reject the terms of the left and begin to educate people how silly and deceptive (intentionally so) these terms are. If there's one thing the left is good at, it is propoganda. Dear Leader is very practiced in manipulating the public, whether it was when he was a Community Agitator in the streets of Chicago or sitting around in college faculty lounges concocting cleverly disguised Communist propoganda. We ourselves need to develop our own well thought out and rational talking points to counteract the Communist propoganda of the left.

So this would mean standard capacity on my M&P9FS would be 17+1. Also means that standard capacity would change based on the gun design, round being fired, etc.

What are some of your guys' take on what constitutes "high capacity"?
High capacity in a pistol? Anything more than the pistol's designed capacity - often as best exampled by the magazines it comes with in areas without limit.
Frankly, if we go by NY police statistics it take 3-4 rounds to hit something. With a pistol, you need about 3 rounds to stop a determined aggressor. Thats 12 rounds right there.

Frankly, the thought of pistols being "high capacity" outside of allready restricted machine pistols is ludicrous.

I am from NY and anything over 7 is the new normal- ny sucks big time. I think 7 was a way for the commie governor to pretty much ban most of the semi autos on the market.

High capacity is anything beyond the number of bad guys in front of you that cannot be taken out with one shot and your ability to put a bullet on target. So, it really depends.

or

Depends on the type of hallucinogen you've been taking and how resistant you are to said hallucinogen.
