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.

Capacity is subjective; a Phalanx CIWS has a standard capacity of 1550. A synonym for "standard" is "normal."

High capacity = any capacity beyond what is "normal" for a given model of firearm. So, a 30-round mag for an AK or AR would be normal capacity. A 75 or 100 round drum, on the other hand, would be high capacity in my view.
