Well, I am probably gonna have to move to California in the next year. I am looking to get a different pistol - I have a S&W 9 mm now and holds up to 16 rds and I am not able to carry more than 10 there - I am comfortable with the 9mm with the 16 rd magazines I have now - but if limited to 10 would like a bit more stopping power and would like recommendations on non- 1911 platforms to look at

I would seriously look at the Smith & Wesson M&P in the .45. I have two and am very pleased with them. They shoot anything I load in them and are far more accurate than I am.

The Sig P 220 fits that bill.

I would look at a:
Sig p220
H&k 45
S&w m&p
In that order. 3 great guns with 10 rounds or less of 45.

Or you could check out my personal favorite non 1911. The springfield xdm. You can get just restricted 10 round mags for them

Glock 35 in 40 cal also gives you a lot of stopping power.

Isn't the compact model of the XD a ten rounder?

Yes it is and it comes 10 round mags for Kalifornistan. The free states get a 10 and an extended 13. About 34 oz loaded with 10+1 of 230 grain 45 acp. Glock 30 or 36 are other options in 45 acp.
My condolences to anyone having to move to Kalifornistan the land of the Kalibaners.

That doesn't sound too bad, considering the geographic disadvantage. I have really enjoyed the dependability of my fullsized XD "tactical"/geezer barrel. It has yet to malfunction or jam on me.
